Undergraduate General Education Core and Graduation Requirements

The student must meet three sets of requirements to graduate from UH Manoa:

  1. General Education Core and Graduation requirements
  2. College or School requirements (e.g., Colleges of Arts and Sciences, School of Nursing)
  3. Major requirements (e.g., family resources, accounting)

This section describes the General Education Core and Graduation requirements. Before registering, students should check the specific requirements for the college/school and major of their choice. With careful planning, the student may be able to select courses that simultaneously satisfy more than one requirement.
