UH Fast Pass Program

The UH Fast Pass Initiative is making it easier for Class of 2021 Hawai‘i public high school seniors to apply for admission at the University of Hawai‘i four-year campuses.

Based on a student's GPA, eligible students will receive letters from the various UH campuses starting in October outlining the Fast Pass program and their application process.

UH Hilo will offer a conditional letter of acceptance to their campus, while UH Mānoa and UH West O‘ahu will offer a special invitation to apply. All campuses will offer a Fast Pass admission process that includes expedited processing of applications and an application fee waiver for those with financial need.

Students may receive multiple letters depending on their GPA.

  • UH Mānoa: 3.5 GPA — invitation to apply
  • UH West O‘ahu: 2.70 GPA — invitation to apply
  • UH Hilo: 2.70 GPA — conditional offer of acceptance

Students are also encouraged to attend a free virtual College Application Information Session in October and November to learn more about the UH campuses, meet with campus reps and walk through the application process.

If you have received a letter from a UH Campus, please refer to it for additional details on next steps on how to apply. If you have any questions, please contact:
