Hi AAT students,
For those of you who will be graduating this semester and are thinking of transferring to either UH Manoa, UH West Oahu, or UH Hilo, be sure to check out the attached flyer.
The UH System offers AUTOMATIC ADMISSIONS/ACCEPTANCE to qualified students. This means that you don't have to pay an application fee or write an essay or even fill out an application. If you qualify, all you do is click a button...and PRESTO, you are admitted! (Please note that this is just for general admissions to the university...if you are applying to College of Education or specific programs, they will have a separate application process and requirements...this auto admit is just to the university itself).
Check out the flyer for more information, deadlines,eligibility requirements (mahalo to LCCW counselor, Jean, for the lovely flyer). Take care,erin
Hi AATers!If you are a new student (or maybe not such a new student) and would like a refresher on How to Register, Using Laulima, Using STAR degree check, Benefits of Seeing a Counselor :o) etc, then be sure to check out this website: http://emedia.leeward.hawaii.edu/nso It is a nice resource for students! Take care,erin
Mahalo to AAT peer mentor, Kevin, for giving us this lead! If any of you know a middle or high school student who has an exceptional teacher that he/she would want to recognize, Barnes and Noble is holding a contest where students can nominate their favorite teacher and win fabulous prizes!

Aloha AAT students,
Below is some very helpful information from our Native Hawaiian STEM counselor. Be sure to check out one of these sessions as it will help you with understanding scholarship programs.
The Office of Hawaiian Affairs will be holding scholarship fairs in December and January throughout the islands. These fairs are part of a partnership with the University of Hawai‘i, Native Hawaiian Education Association, Gear Up Hawai‘i, and the Pacific Financial Aid Association. These fairs (or "'Aha") provide a "one-stop-shop" for Native Hawaiian students who need tips on how to apply for scholarships as well as several scholarship vendors who will have booths on site. It's a very popular event so please BE THERE EARLY.
