The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is extending the enrollment deadline in 2024 from May 1 to June 1 as the federal government has delayed the release of financial information to colleges and universities around the country. The application deadline for new on-campus housing has also been extended to June 1.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is used by tens of millions of college students each year to apply for federal financial aid. The information is also used by schools to award scholarships and provide assistance through other aid programs. This year, the FAFSA process is experiencing delays after a system upgrade including a new streamlined form.

UH Mānoa joins a growing number of colleges and universities around the country that are responding to the system delay by extending the enrollment deadline.

“We understand that many families are waiting to understand the full picture of what level of financial aid they will receive before making a decision on which campus they should attend,” said UH Mānoa Vice Provost for Enrollment Management Nikki Chun. “We are grateful that students and their ʻohana consider UH Mānoa for their education as we have such a wide range of programs and faculty who are among the top in their fields.”


The flagship campus of the 10-campus UH system, UH Mānoa offers more than 99 different majors and academic programs and consistently ranks among the top universities in research and academic success. A bachelor’s degree from UH earns a graduate an average of $2.8 million more over their lifetime compared to those without a degree, according to a 2024 report from the UH Economic Resource Organization (UHERO).

“All of the data show that higher education is a worthwhile investment, and you don’t have to leave Hawaiʻi to receive a quality education that’s also affordable,” UH Mānoa Provost Michael Bruno. “I hope students who are thinking about college and want to make a difference here in Hawaiʻi strongly consider UH Mānoa. We will provide the education and tools you need for a successful career and fulfilling life, as we all work to make our state a better place for generations to come.”
