For all other majors, Click here to locate your advising office. If you are a pre-major, undecided on a major, or listed as “BA/EX” in STAR, contact the Manoa Advising Center (MAC).

The Advising Center created a Tiered Access to Advising system to tailor advising to your individual needs. Explore each level below.

We encourage every student to check in with the Advising Center each semester, create an academic plan through graduation, and update that plan each semester. We can help you stay on track and keep on top of  requirements, opportunities, and deadlines.
