Academic advisers at the colleges’ Student Academic Services Office assist students with clarifying academic and career goals, learning about educational options and campus resources, planning a program of study, understanding academic policies and procedures and degree requirements, and assessing their academic progress toward their degrees. Students who are interested in a particular major or who have already declared a major also should meet with an adviser in the appropriate academic department.

From matriculation to graduation, students can take advantage of a range of advising services offered by the Arts and Sciences Student Academic Services Office.


See First Year Center under First Year at Manoa in the “Undergraduate Education” section of this Catalog.


Sophomores who need assistance choosing a major should see an academic adviser or attend a special session designed to help students sort through their options. If they are interested in transferring to another program, they should see an adviser in that office.


Juniors can attend a Junior Matriculation Planning (JUMP) session to assess their academic progress, project a graduation date, and plan their remaining semesters at UH Manoa.


Seniors must attend a Graduation Audit (GRAD) session to review their record, plan their remaining semester(s), and do the necessary paperwork for graduation.

Students also can meet individually with advisers for clarification of requirements and for resolution of complex academic issues and individual concerns.
