Request for Transfer of Credits
At the time of admission, most transfer students to the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa will have had their former, official university or college transcripts evaluated by the Office of Admissions. Qualifying transfer credits will be transferred to their UHM academic record according to UHM transfer credit articulation criteria and recorded on STAR.
From time to time, the UHM Office of Admissions will route a Request for Evaluation of Transfer Credits that may qualify for transfer credits directly to the Hawaiʻinuiākea faculty for further evaluation before the UHM Office of Admissions renders a decision to accept/not accept the transfer credits. The Hawaiʻinuiākea faculty committee decides, and informs the UHM Office of Admissions of their decision.
At the latest, a Request for Evaluation of Transfer Credits should be received by the 5th week of the semester before the anticipated semester of graduation (i.e., 5th week of the Fall semester for Spring or Summer graduation; 5th week of the Spring semester for Fall graduation. Decisions will be made and communicated to the student by the end of the semester in which the student submitted the request.
