Admission versus Registration?

Admission is acceptance to the College which permits you to register for classes.
Registration
is selecting classes you want to attend.

To register for classes, you must first submit an application and be accepeted to Leeward CC. When you're accepted for admission, you'll receive information on how to register for classes. Registration is done via the internet. Your registration is not complete until you have paid for all applicable tuition and fees.

How do I apply for admission?

To apply for admission to the College, you must apply online at: http://apply.hawaii.edu.  See details on How to Apply.

To qualify for admission to the College, you must be 18 years of age by the first day of instruction, a high school graduate or have received a General Education Diploma (GED).

Transcripts from previously attended post-high school institutions are not required for admission purposes. Evaluating previous college credits is optional unless you are planning to apply for financial aid or Veterans Administration benefits.

Why must I provide my Social Security Number on the admissions application?

Each applicant is advised that disclosure of his/her Social Security Number (SSN) is required as a condition for making application. SSN will be used to verify the identity of the applicant. For more information, see the Notice to Applicants for Admission section in the application instructions.

In efforts to protect your SSN, you will be assigned a student identification number. You will be informed of your student identification number in your acceptance letter. This number will be used in place of you SSN on class rosters and can be used as identification purposes within the University of Hawaii system.

What is the difference between resident and non-resident?

Residency status is determined at the point of application submission. You will be notified of your residency status in your acceptance letter. This determination is for tuition purposes only and will determine the rate of tuition that you will be charged.

For more information about rules and regulations governing the determination of residency status, see the Rules and Regulations Governing Determination of Residency as Applied to Tuition Payments and Admission at All Institutions Under the Jurisdiction of the Board of Regents of the University of Hawaii
and
Questions and Answers About the University of Hawaii’s Residency Requirements for Tuition Purposes.

Am I required to turn in TB and MMR Clearances?

The State Department of Health requires all students to be cleared of tuberculosis and provide proof of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubeola (MMR). TB and MMR documentation is not required for admission to the College but must be submitted before you can register for courses.

TB - ALL students enrolled at Leeward CC must have tuberculosis (TB) clearance. A negative TB skin test (PPD - Mantoux) within one year prior to your enrollment is required. Skin test results must be read in 48 to 72 hours. If positive, a chest x-ray is required. TB tests performed outside the United States, or skin testing using methods/materials other than PPD will not be accepted. Once you have met your TB clearance requirement, your clearance is valid for four years of continuous enrollment.

MMR - Two doses of measles vaccine are required, with at least one of the two being an MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella). First dose must have been given as of January 1, 1968, AND on or after the first birthday. A second dose must have been given at least 4 weeks after the first dose. Measles, Mumps, and Rubella immunizations may be waived if: 1) Student was born before 1957, or 2) Serologic evidence of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella.

I've submitted my application for admission, now what?

You will either receive a request for more information or a letter of acceptance. Included in your acceptance letter will be information on orientation, placement testing and registration.

What is a home campus/institution?

When a student is accepted for admission to a campus within the University of Hawaii system, that campus becomes their home campus/institution. This is usually the campus where the student is pursuing a degree of study. And, it is where they may apply for financial aid or Veterans Administration benefits.

To change home institutions, you must submit a completed Change of Home Institution Form to the Admissions/Records Office of the institution you want to designate as your new home.
