For Immediate Release

Enrollment at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo continues to inch forward as the Fall 2012 count eclipsed last year’s previous high. Preliminary opening credit enrollment figures from the University of Hawaiʻi System show UH Hilo’s enrollment grew by 23 students or 0.6% to 4,172 compared to 4,149 a year ago.

“We’re pleased that growing numbers of students are enrolling at UH Hilo, which we believe validates the quality of our programs, faculty and staff,” said Chancellor Don Straney. “We look forward to working with these students to help them achieve their educational goals.”

Students of Native Hawaiian ancestry total 992 or 23.7% of the overall student body. The Fall 2012 figures show women comprise 59% of UH Hilo’s total enrollment, while men account for just over 40%. Nearly 7 out of every 10 students or 2,898 come from Hawaiʻi and 30% or 1,274 are from out-of-state.
