UHMC Fall Enrollment Down for Fourth Consecutive Year
Fall enrollment at the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College is down 5.7% from the same semester last year according to the University of Hawaiʻi System Institutional Research and Analysis Office.
The drop marks another consecutive decline reported since 2011, when the school had 4,527 students enrolled. That translates to 934 less students at the Kahului campus over four years.
Total enrollment at UHMC for the Fall of 2015 was 3,593 students, down 216 students from the 3,809 enrolled in 2014.
UHMC also experienced the greatest decline in enrollment for the semester compared to other campuses across the system. Only two campuses–Honolulu Community College and UH West Oʻahu reported increases in enrollment, according to the data.
The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa flagship campus reported a 3.3% decline in enrollment to 18,865 students for the Fall of 2015–that’s a drop of 642 students from the same semester last year.
