Spring enrollment increased for the fourth straight year, reaching an all-time high of 56,716 for the 10-campus University of Hawaiʻi System in January 2011.
Opening enrollment grew by 955 students compared to spring 2010 and represented a nearly 23 percent increase from 2007.
As an incentive for those students to attend summer session, nine of the campuses are instituting a one-time reduction in resident summer tuition to $248 per credit hour.
That is $68 per credit hour below the 2011 “list price” under the current tuition schedule for UH Hilo and UH West Oʻahu and $35 per credit hour less for the community colleges, including UH Maui College.
Hilo students can also take advantaged of discounted summer housing rates in the Hale ʻIkena apartment complex.
Recommendations for summer 2012 tuition will be made after assessing the impact of the rate change this year.
