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.

  • Financial Literacy: VITA Tax Volunteers Needed

    Financial Literacy  will be offering free of charge tax preparation services to our UH Manoa students and general community from February 9, 2016 though April 8, 2016. Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays will be by appointment only 10am – 4pm. Walk ins as well as appointments will be accepted on Wednesdays 10am – 8pm and Saturdays from 9am -1pm. To volunteer, you must pass a few online multiple choice certification tests. Training is mostly self-study using the modules at IRS VITA/TCE Central. Supplementary training will be offered on Saturday, January 23 and 30 from 9am – 3pm. A limited number of training kits are available in our office (QLC 209). You should complete the paper test (in training kit) first before attempting the online certification test as you only have two attempts to pass with a score of 80% or higher. When you have passed the certification tests you should print and sign your Volunteer Agreement form to submit to the site coordinator at your volunteer site. Hours spent training and volunteering may be counted towards the Manoa Service Award as well as active status credit for certain RIO’s. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Stacy Miyashiro or stop by QLC 209.

  • Air Force ROTC Program

    The Air Force ROTC program is a great way to earn a commission in the United States Air Force. You will find that the program is a challenging and rewarding experience. Cadets must successfully earn a bachelors degree before we can commission them as second lieutenants, therefore we stress academic excellence throughout our cadet’s college tenure. This focus also requires them to balance tough academic demands with corps activities and their personal lives. Time management and an unwavering desire to succeed are definitely keys to success. Our mission is to commission Air Force second lieutenants, leaders of the highest quality and character that exudes our core values of Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence In All We Do.
