The Hawai`i Community College Division of Student Affairs provide quality services and activities designed to promote student success and degree completion: recruitment and enrollment, early college and career preparation and transition, advising and counseling; retention, persistence, skills building, enhanced educational experiences, student life, leadership, and activities and transfer.

Evident in the Annual Headcount of ALL Students in the past 3 years, Hawai‘i Community College continues to sustain its growth.  Enrollment in 2011-12 saw an increase of 2% for ALL and Native Hawaiian students.  Interestingly, this growth does not reflect enrollment of recent Hawai‘i High School graduates which saw an enrollment decrease of 32 students from the previous year.  HawCC continue to see increase in New Student, Continuing Student, and Returning Student enrollment, but demographically, there was a marked decrease in participation of students who are 25-49 years of age, who come from identified underserved regions, and those who are in STEM programs.

Pell participation for all students generally show an increase in rate of students receiving Financial Aid, and the total Pell disbursement as compared to the previous year also show an increase of approximately $350K.  However, Pell participation of Native Hawaiian students shows a decrease of 17% or 203 students.                                                                                                                           

The overall percentage of persistence of all students, including Native Hawaiians, at HawCC continues to hover between 72-74% in the last three years.  The number of degrees and certificates awarded to ALL students saw an increase of 11% or 47 more degrees and certificates from the previous year.  Native Hawaiian students also earned 11 more degrees and certificates in 2011-12.  Another positive trend is the rate of transfer of HawCC students to UH 4-yr, including the rate of transfer of Native Hawaiian students.

This year, the Division of Student Affairs has been evolving, defining, and strengthening units/programs and the services provided.  One new focus is on Orientation and Passport to College Success initiative.  Another area of focus is on Strategic Planning and Outcomes as a result of the campus initiatives in Assessment and Accreditation. The Division is continuing to revisit and align goals and outcomes to Career and College Readiness as well as College Completion to support campus and system initiatives.
