The University of Hawai’i at Mānoa partners with educational and research institutions all over the world, providing networking and exchange opportunities for students, faculty, and scholars. These partnerships can be established at the University, College, and Department levels.
All International Agreements at UH Mānoa must be signed by the Mānoa Chancellor and his or her counterpart at the overseas institution. International Agreements may establish general partnerships of collaboration (General MOU), or partnerships that involve the exchange of students (MOA on Student Exchange) for one or two semesters (whereby students pay tuition at their home university but are exempt or partially exempt from paying tuition as an exchange student at the receiving partner university). All International Agreements are initiated and sponsored by one or more UHM academic units. MOAs on Student Exchange are administered by Mānoa International Exchange (MIX) in cooperation with the proposing UHM academic unit(s). Qualified students from partner universities that have established a General MOU with UHM may also be nominated to attend UHM for one or two semesters via the Hoakipa Scholarship Program.
For a detailed outline of procedures for establishing academic agreements at UHM, please review the policy on International Agreements at the OVCAA website here.

Propose a new International Student Exchange Partner
MIX Student Exchange Agreement Proposal Form – Complete and submit the original form, including signatures, to the MIX Coordinator (QLC 206). This form is a document internal to UHM and should be completed by UHM faculty, not by a representative from the prospective partner university.
Student exchange agreements are always entered into in the spirit of reciprocity; there must be demonstrated interest from UHM students as well as evidence that students will benefit from the establishment of a new exchange. Questions about proposing a new international exchange program? Contact MIX.
