ABOUT THIS CATALOG
How to Use This Catalog
The 2008-2009 University of Hawai‘i at Manoa (UH Manoa) Catalog is a comprehensive guide to UH Manoa programs, course offerings, services, tuition, financial aid, faculty, facilities, academic policies, and other information of general importance to UH Manoa students. The information in this Catalog is not necessarily complete; 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:
If you are a prospective freshman or transfer undergraduate student, consult the sections on undergraduate education, Undergraduate 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 advisor.
If you are a prospective graduate student, consult the graduate education section and the graduate 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, there will be changes in courses offered and program requirements. Check the Schedule of Classes or UH Registration Homepage at www.hawaii.edu/myuh/manoa and your department, college, or school for the most current information.
