Admission requirements for UH Manoa are similar to those of comparable state institutions of higher education. Applicants are advised to consult appropriate UH Manoa colleges and schools for specific information since individual academic programs may have special admission policies and procedures.

The following regulations and procedures are subject to change without prior notice. Prospective students should consult the most current Catalog and/or an adviser before applying for admission.

Admission of Classified Students

Classified undergraduates are those admitted to approved programs of study leading to University of Hawai'i at Manoa baccalaureate degrees. Students who have earned 0-24 credit hours are freshmen; those with 25-54 credit hours are sophomores; those with 55-88 credit hours are juniors; and those with 89 or more credit hours are seniors.

Freshmen and sophomores are lower division students, while juniors and seniors are upper division students. 

Admission of Freshmen

Students applying for admission as freshmen must submit an application, official scores from the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT-I) or American College Test (ACT), high school transcripts, and recommendations from school officials. Applicants taking the General Education Development (GED) high school-equivalency test must submit GED results in addition to high school transcripts. Applicants who have been home-schooled must submit GED results in addition to high school transcripts and official SAT-I or ACT scores. A high rating in one area will not ensure admission, nor will poor performance in an area exclude applicants if other evidence shows they may be successful in university-level work.

SAT-I or ACT. Candidates for fall admission should take the SAT-I or ACT no later than December of their senior year in high school. Candidates for spring admission should take the test before July. Information is available from high school counselors or from the testing agencies. For SAT-I, contact College Entrance Examination Board, c/o Educational Testing Service, P.O. Box 592, Princeton, NJ 08540. For ACT, contact American College Testing Program, P.O. Box 414, Iowa City, IA 52243.

High School Record. Applicants should have grades high enough to place them in the upper 40 percent of their graduating class, and they should be recommended by their principal or a designated school representative.

Minimum Unit Requirements. Applicants should complete 22 units of high school work (grades 9-12) of which at least 17 are college preparatory. The term "unit" means satisfactory completion of a full school year's course of study or the equivalent in laboratory and shop exercises. A listing of courses and grades from the ninth through twelfth grades must be included. College-preparatory subjects must include at least four units in English; three in mathematics, including college-preparatory geometry and second-year algebra; three in natural sciences; three in social sciences; and four additional units, which may include higher mathematics, additional science, additional social studies, and foreign language. All other courses for which the high school grants credit may be offered to satisfy the remaining unit requirements, although there should be no less than a half-unit nor more than two units in any one subject.

Students entering curricula in engineering, mathematics, and biological and physical sciences must meet the special mathematics requirements listed in the college sections of this Catalog.

Profile of Admitted Students. All applications are evaluated on an individual basis. Generally, successful applicants attain a B-average for all college-preparatory high school course work, achieve SAT-I (or equivalent) scores of 510 (verbal) and 510 (math), and rank in the upper 40 percent of their graduating class.

Nonresident applicants should await notice of acceptance before coming to Hawai'i. By Board of Regents policy, the number of nonresidents admitted is limited.

Admission decisions are made independent of the availability of financial aid and housing. Students must apply separately for financial aid and housing. (See the "Tuition, Fees, and Financial Aid" and "Student Life" sections of this Catalog.)
