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.

Honors Program

The Honors Program provides opportunities for talented, motivated undergraduates to excel in their academic studies.

  • Mānoa Catalog Office

    We’ve just recently updated and revised the Mānoa Catalog and the Bachelor Degree Program Sheet websites for 2013-2014!! The Mānoa Catalog is available at catalog.hawaii.edu; Bachelor Degree Program Sheets are available at manoa.hawaii.edu/ovcaa/programsheets. The Catalog is an up-to-date, comprehensive guide to UH Mānoa programs, course offerings, services, tuition, financial aid, faculty, facilities, academic policies, and information of general importance to UH Manoa students and the general public. It is disseminated through the printed UH Manoa Catalog and the online UH Manoa Catalog website. The Bachelor Degree Program Sheets and Sample Four Year Academic Plans are pdf documents that advise students on what courses and credits they need to receive a bachelor’s degree in each program that awards a bachelor degree. The Sample Four Year Academic Plans advise students on which classes to take each semester to graduate within four years. The site is maintained on the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs website.
