Transfer Students

As you consider the option to transfer into the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, we have collected information and resources to assist you. If you are unsure about the majors we offer at UH Mānoa and would like to get more information, please click through the different sections below.

Many Community Colleges offer Liberal Arts as an associate’s level degree. Here at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, we do not offer Liberal Arts as a degree. We would like to emphasize the fact that students get their liberal arts education through the general education courses offered here. Therefore, in order to graduate, students are required to choose a major. In the event that students are interested in Liberal Arts, they will be admitted into the Exploratory Program in order to find a major that sparks their interest and potential future careers.

A complete list of the majors offered at UH Mānoa can be found on our Advising Guide website.

If no major is quite your size or shape, you may find a better fit through the Interdisciplinary Studies Program. It enables interested and qualified students to arrange interdisciplinary “major equivalents” for B.A. degrees.

Transfer Credit Evaluation

The Course Transfer Database website contains a searchable database of course equivalencies for UH campuses, as well as other colleges and universities.

The evaluation of courses on this site is an unofficial guide. Transferability of any given course is not guaranteed until an official transfer credit evaluation is completed. Specific course equivalencies require review based upon the unique characteristics of each college and university, and may differ from one institution to another. Be sure to contact an academic advisor, as the database is regularly updated and subject to change.

Mānoa Transfer Coordination Center

The Mānoa Transfer Coordination Center (MTCC) helps students in the Ka’ie’ie Program transfer smoothly from a participating University of Hawai’i system campus to the University of Hawaii at Mānoa (UHM) by providing advising support throughout the transfer process.
