The University of Hawaiʻi is extending the deadline to apply for admissions to UH Mānoa, UH Hilo, and UH West Oʻahu to Aug. 1, 2020, the same deadline as the seven UH community colleges.

University representatives say the adjustment will give prospective students additional time to consider attending a UH campus for the 2020–21 academic year under the new uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible, particularly if they are interested in financial aid.

Gov. David Ige announced the extension during a news conference Wednesday.

“For parents and students who are now thinking about staying home for college, you canʻt beat the opportunities across the University of Hawaiʻi System,” said UH President Lassner, adding that “there is something for everyone at UH—from graduating high school seniors, to students on the mainland wanting to return home, to adults looking for improved economic opportunity through a career change.”
