GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS AND POLICIES
Graduation Requirements and Policies
Progress Toward the Bachelor’s Degree
Students are expected to complete their academic work and apply for a degree in a timely manner (see “Excess Credit Policy”). The department or program in which the student is pursuing a degree may decide that certain courses required for the major that were taken in the past must be retaken. Courses that are declared outdated for the major will still count toward the General Education Core if they meet core requirements. Students should consult with their academic adviser in their major field of study for details.
Students must earn a minimum of 30 credit hours in residence (i.e., taking credit courses or their equivalent by examination) at UH Manoa. However, meeting the residency requirements does not necessarily mean that degree requirements have been met; the latter are determined by individual colleges.
A degree candidate must be registered and in attendance during the semester or summer session in which he or she completes the requirements for his or her degree, unless permission has been given for graduation in absentia by the appropriate college or school dean.
Application for Degree
An application for graduation must be obtained at the student academic services office of the appropriate college or school and then submitted with the degree fee to the Cashier’s Office. This must be done by the deadlines specified in the “Calendar.”
