  The 2003-2004 UH Manoa Catalog is a comprehensive guide to Manoa programs, course offerings, faculty, facilities, services, tuition, financial aid, academic policies, and other information of general importance to UH Manoa students. The information contained in this Catalog is not necessarily complete. Where applicable, names and contact numbers for other publications and offices, which may offer additional information about specific areas of interest, have been included. 

The Catalog is divided into five major sections:
  • Information about the University and the campus, student services, academic policies, tuition and financial aid.
  • Information about the individual colleges and schools and their academic programs.
  • Descriptions of courses offered.
  • Lists of administrators, faculty, and staff with their academic backgrounds.
  • Campus policies and information, glossary, and index.

If you are a prospective freshman or transfer undergraduate student, consult the sections on undergraduate education, Undergraduate Manoa General Education Core and graduation requirements, tuition, financial aid, and student life. In addition, you should read the program section of the department, college or school that interests you. Before selecting classes, read the course descriptions for prerequisites, credit hours, and other relevant information. For additional information on specific programs of study, consult the department chair, program director, or major adviser.

If you are a prospective graduate student, consult the graduate education section of this Catalog and the chair of the program in which you are interested for information regarding admission requirements, degree options, registration, and related procedures.

If you are a continuing student, keep this Catalog handy as a source of general information. Familiarity with its contents can smooth your progress toward your degree.

Although every effort is made to keep the Catalog correct and current, inevitably there will be some changes in courses offered and program requirements. You should, therefore, check the Schedule of Classes and your department, college, or school for the most current information.
