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.

  • COVID-19 Update

    We are committed to completing the semester for our students while protecting the safety of our employees and students. UH instruction will be conducted online for the remainder of the semester. Until further notice, our campus will remain open to our students and employees. To maximize safety, other public-facing services may be curtailed for the duration of the crisis. Campus libraries are closed to the public and other facilities and services may follow. Changes to facilities and practices will be made to maximize social distancing in accord with CDC guidelines for Institutions of Higher Education. Full buildings or sections of buildings that are unnecessary during this crisis may be closed under the authority of a UH Officer. Cleaning and disinfection will be focused on areas still open to students and employees. Traditional dining services are being phased out and replaced with To-Go, Grab-n-Go and/or Delivery food services. All public events will be canceled at least through the end of April. Mahalo for your support to our students, our university and our state in this difficult and incredibly dynamic situation.
