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.
