Academic Advising

The Mānoa Advising Center (MAC) provides academic advising for students who are undecided on a major or pre-majors.

Design Your Own Major

If no University major is quite your size or shape, you may find a better fit through the Interdisciplinary Studies Program.

Planning to Succeed

Bachelor Degree Program Sheets and Sample Four Year Academic Plans are intended as advising tools to be used in tandem with academic advising.

  • Early Acceptance Expands to Health Profession Doctorates

    The significance and impact of healthcare professionals are highlighted more than ever with the COVID-19 pandemic.  UH Mānoa has worked to establish special Early Acceptance Programs (EAPs) with select institutions across the country to initiate early acceptance programs that would grant qualified students and/or alumni provisional acceptance into specific health professional doctoral programs. The areas include dentistry, osteopathic medicine, pharmacy, and physical therapy. Providing these EAPs encourages and supports students who are interested in pursuing a career in these fields. EAPs are an excellent opportunity for students as admissions into these programs are extremely competitive. Moreover, there are no doctoral programs of these types offered on Oʻahu, so these EAPs will provide UH Mānoa students with the opportunity to pursue educational and professional options that are not offered in the state. “We are hopeful that graduates from these programs will return to Hawaiʻi to practice and help address the state’s shortage of healthcare professionals,” EAP Director Kiana Shiroma said. “In the face of a worldwide health crisis it is even more important for UH Mānoa to find paths for better medical coverage in our state.” EAP applications are separate from the standard UH Mānoa application and have different deadlines. Depending on the program, students can apply as high school seniors, current undergraduates, and/or as alumni. More information is available on the EAP website. Students can also contact the Pre-Health/Pre-Law Advising Center.

  • COVID-19 Updates

  • Credit/No Credit Option

    For Spring semester 2020, students in all undergraduate and graduate UH classes ending after March 20, 2020 will have the option of taking their classes on a Credit/No Credit (CR/NC) basis. The process for implementing the CR/NC for Spring 2020 will be: Faculty will continue to award letter grades for Spring 2020 classes by entering their grades into MyUH during the regular grading period. Courses already established as CR/NC will continue to use those designations instead of letter grades. Once the faculty have entered their grades, students will be able to view the assigned grades in STAR-GPS. Until May 22, students may choose to retain their letter grades or convert their letter grades to the CR/NC designation for one or more classes. After May 22 when students have made their choice, registrars will make the grades final and will include a notation indicating this is a “semester disrupted by COVID-19” on the transcript. For the purposes of this policy, Credit (CR) may be awarded for a grade of C or better. Establishing credit at a C allows for those students opting for the Credit option to continue to meet the requirements for entry to major and minor courses, as well as prerequisites for courses in a sequence. The CR designation will not be counted in the GPA. Students with a letter grade of C-, D, or F may opt instead for No Credit (NC). If they opt for No Credit, that course will not be counted towards their GPA.

  • COVID-19 Update

    We are committed to completing the semester for our students while protecting the safety of our employees and students. UH instruction will be conducted online for the remainder of the semester. Until further notice, our campus will remain open to our students and employees. To maximize safety, other public-facing services may be curtailed for the duration of the crisis. Campus libraries are closed to the public and other facilities and services may follow. Changes to facilities and practices will be made to maximize social distancing in accord with CDC guidelines for Institutions of Higher Education. Full buildings or sections of buildings that are unnecessary during this crisis may be closed under the authority of a UH Officer. Cleaning and disinfection will be focused on areas still open to students and employees. Traditional dining services are being phased out and replaced with To-Go, Grab-n-Go and/or Delivery food services. All public events will be canceled at least through the end of April. Mahalo for your support to our students, our university and our state in this difficult and incredibly dynamic situation.
