Our world is facing an issue of immense scale and global impact with the evolving uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation. Our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Students are the core of our university, and we remain committed to their safety, well-being, and success. The University of Hawai'i at Mānoa COVID-19 provides information on teaching, learning, and working on campus as we prepare for a return. Our campus is following the University of Hawai'i System COVID-19 Guidelines. We are closely partnering with our campus, state, and government officials in making sound decisions to protect the public and help prevent a spread of COVID-19.

At this time, for the safety of our students and community, our campus doors are shuttered. Although we are unable to offer in-person services, weʻve gone virtual! We are operating in a virtual landscape and available during normal business hours. Please do not hesitate to connect with us if you have any questions or concerns by emailing manoa.admissions@hawaii.edu
