Graduation Rates

Hawaii Pacific University is pleased to provide the following information regarding our institution's graduation/completion rates. The information is provided in compliance with the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. The rates reflect the graduation/completion status of students who enrolled during the (2009-2010) school year and for whom 150% of the normal time-to-completion has elapsed.

During the fall semester of 2009, 598 first-time, full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate students entered Hawaii Pacific University. After 6 years (as of August 31, 2015), 49% of these students had graduated from Hawaii Pacific University or completed their programs. The 4-year average Student Right-to-Know completion or graduation rate is 43%.

In the fall semester of 2014, 509 first-time, full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate students entered Hawaii Pacific University.  Seventy percent of these students enrolled at Hawaii Pacific University again in the fall semester of 2015.

While reviewing this information, please bear in mind:

  • The graduation/completion rate is based on 6 years of attendance that equates to 150% of our longest program.
  • The graduation/completion rate does not include students who left the school to serve in the armed forces, on official church missions, or in the foreign service of the federal government. Students who died or were totally and permanently disabled are also excluded.
