Enrollment in UH system breaks record

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) — Enrollment in the 10-campus University of Hawaii system has reached a record 58,157 students.

School officials said Monday that's 8.7 percent more than the previous mark of 53,509 set last fall.

University of Hawaii officials say all 10 campuses experienced higher enrollment this fall. The largest gains were seen on the community college level, with an overall increase of 13.5 percent from a year ago.

Maui Community College had a gain of 26 percent, while enrollment at Kauai Community College surged 22 percent.

School officials say the high enrollment is both good and bad news.

It's a positive sign that people are recognizing the value of higher education, but growth is coming at a time when UH is least able to handle it financially.
