Undergraduate Time-to-Degree Brief
- First-time Full-Time Freshmen
At University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, time-to-degree for undergraduate students in general and for different types of student populations are only examined among degrees awarded to students who started as first-time full-time freshmen. This is because transfer students bring in different numbers of transfer credits, so they are not included to allow for a more reliable apple-to-apple comparison across years.
