On Thursday, February 7, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., KCC will be hosting its second annual UH Transfer Day. With representatives coming from UH Mānoa, UH Hilo, UH West Oʻahu, and UH Maui College, students will have the opportunity to speak with transfer specialists and faculty from various departments to generate a pathway that will later guide them into a university setting. 

Campus representatives will be spread throughout the campus at three locations: the STEM Center in Kokiʻo 202, second floor of the Lama Library, and the Great Lawn. Each college’s departments will be found at the following areas:

STEM Center (Kokiʻo 202):
– UH Hilo College of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resource Management
– UH Hilo School of Nursing
– UH Hilo Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy
– UH Mānoa College of Engineering
– UH Mānoa School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology
– UH Mānoa Natural Sciences
– UH Mānoa College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources
– UH Mānoa College of Education

Lama Library second floor:
– UH Hilo College of Business and Economics
– UH Hilo Ka Haka ʻUla O Keʻelikōlani
– UH Mānoa Shidler College of Business
– UH Mānoa School of Travel Industry Management
– UH Mānoa Arts and Humanities/Languages, Linguistics, and Literature
– UH Mānoa Hawaiʻinuiākea, School of Hawaiian Knowledge
– UH Mānoa College of Social Sciences
– UH Mānoa School of Social Work/Public Health
– UH Maui College Applied Business and Information Technology
– UH West Oʻahu Business Administration

All admissions representatives will have tents set up along the Great Lawn to provide support and answer questions regarding transfer processes.

With February being recognized as transfer month within the UH system, hosting UH Transfer Day is an event that UH community college transfer counselor Amy McKee said carries a purpose “to build awareness about transfer opportunities for students.” She recommends that students arrive prepared to take notes as each transfer process varies and to have at least one question to ask representatives.
