III. Executive Policy
1. Implements Board policy related to campus ceilings for nonresident undergraduate enrollments (nonresident enrollment caps) at the University of Hawai‘i.
2. Nonresident enrollment caps were first established in the 1970s as part of the University’s Controlled Growth Policy. In January 2011, the President was granted the authority to establish campus ceilings for nonresident undergraduate enrollments in consultation with the Board (BOR Policy RP 5.211.
1. The nonresident enrollment cap is based on undergraduate enrollments only. Graduate and professional school enrollments are excluded from the calculations. The exclusion is consistent with Board policy where graduate and professional programs have a special responsibility to admit the most qualified students while demonstrating that every effort is made to enroll resident applicants who compete favorably in the admissions process.
2. Campus ceilings for nonresident undergraduate enrollment ceilings are 35 percent at the baccalaureate campuses. Undergraduate enrollment ceilings at the community colleges are 15 percent.
The Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs shall monitor the nonresident undergraduate enrollment rates at the campuses each fall semester and work with them, as needed, to remain within their enrollment ceilings.
