Students considering transferring to UH Manoa should first read about the university Transfer Admission Process.
Generally, UH Manoa accepts credits earned at institutions that are fully accredited by US regional accrediting associations, or an institution recognized by the Office of Admssions, provided such credits are substantially equivalent to courses at UH Manoa. An evaluation of transfer credits (for individual courses taken elsewhere) will be undertaken only after a student has been admitted to a program leading to a degree and has confirmed his or her intention to enroll.
The Office of Admissions will contact you to let you know what you need to do to transfer courses to UH Manoa. Please note that the content of a course taken elsewhere can only be assessed with a detailed course syllabus that includes a list of lecture topics, as well as contact information for the instrutor that taught the course at your current institution. Save other course materials, such as exams and assignments, that might be useful in determining the eligibility of a potential transferring course.
Students must receive a grade of C or better in order for courses that apply toward their major.
