Upper Division Honors allows eligible transfer students a path to a two-year Honors experience. To be eligible for Upper Division Honors, students should have four semesters remaining (exceptions may be made for highly qualified students with three semesters remaining on a case-by-case basis). The Upper Division Honors experience is designed around the Senior Honors Project.
Upper Division Honors are open to any major at UHM, though certain majors have developed Honors Tracks that articulate with the Honors Program. Upper Division Honors is focused on coursework that develops students’ Senior Honors Projects in research or creative work.
Students in the Upper Division program follow a course of study built around the independent research and creative work required for a Senior Honors Project.
Students completing the requirements successfully are acknowledged at Commencement, and the distinction is annotated on their transcript and diploma.
