HONOLULU (AP) - The University of Hawaii reports opening enrollment for the 10-campus system for the spring 2010 semester was 55,761 students. That's the highest spring enrollment in UH history. Spring enrollment has now increased for the third year in a row, as all campuses experienced increases.
The 2009 fall semester enrollment of around 58,000 was the highest ever for the University of Hawaii system. UH Vice President for Academic Planning and Policy Linda Johnsrud says the record high enrollment shows the public continues
to turn to higher education as a way to improve themselves and their opportunities during difficult economic times.
She says the University of Hawaii provides "an excellent education at a great value."
