University of Hawaii enrollment down 2%

HONOLULU (AP) - The number of students attending the University of Hawaii's 10 campuses is down about 2% from last spring.

More than 55,000 students are enrolled in classes at the school's three universities and seven community colleges.

Enrollment at 6 of the community colleges declined compared to last year. Only Kauai Community College reported more students.

The university said Friday just over 19,000 students are enrolled at the flagship Manoa campus. That number is little changed from last year.

The recently established West Oahu campus reported a 22% jump in enrollment to more than 1,900 students.
