Automatic Admission

Automatic admission (Auto admit) allows University of Hawai?i Community College students who are completing their Associate in Arts or select Associate in Science degrees to transfer to a four-year campus in the University of Hawai?i System without having to reapply. Since the process is done electronically, the application fee is waived. STAR notifies students who are eligible via email and students electronically select the campus of their choice and their intended major. This simplifies the transfer process for students wishing to continue on their path towards a four-year degree.

Automatic Admissions Process

  • Eligible students will receive an email offering them acceptance to any of our University of Hawai‘i baccalaureate campuses.
  • The deadline to accept the offer is March 1 (for the Fall enrollment) or Oct 1 (for Spring enrollment).
  • Auto Admit students accept the offer via their STAR account by selecting UH West O?ahu as their campus.
  • Students admitted through the Auto Admit process do not have to submit an Intent to Enroll form. Once admitted, the student’s home campus will automatically be updated to UH West O?ahu.
  • After an Auto Admit student selects UH West Oahu as their campus in STAR, UH West O’ahu will mail them a hard copy formal acceptance letter for their records.
