A new free, short and easy application to the University of Hawaiʻi Community Colleges, called the Kamaʻāina App, is now available exclusively for graduating seniors in Hawaiʻi’s class of 2022. The Kamaʻāina App should take students fewer than 15 minutes to complete and there is no application fee, saving valuable time and money. This application is open to all class of 2022 seniors attending a public, private or charter school in Hawaiʻi.

Students can apply now for the upcoming summer and fall 2022 semesters at:

“We welcome the Class of 2022 to the University of Hawaiʻi’s seven community colleges for education and training in a wide range of programs that prepares them for success in careers and contributing to the community,” said UH Vice President of Community Colleges Erika Lacro. “The Kamaʻāina App streamlines the process for admission for our graduating high school seniors to take the next steps for their future.”

In addition to a new application, UH Community Colleges offer various scholarships to help make a postsecondary education affordable. Every Hawaiʻi student who is eligible is considered for the Hawaiʻi Promise Scholarship, which provides free in-state tuition for qualified students with financial need. Last year, about 2,500 UH Community College students were offered more than $5 million of these scholarships.

For Hawaiʻi public high school seniors needing assistance in completing their Kamaʻāina App, Hawaiʻi P–20 Partnerships for Education is hosting a series of college application workshops. To register for an upcoming event, go to
