School of Architecture
All applicants for admission to the school must complete a UH System Application Form by the stated deadline for the semester in which initial enrollment is sought. For information on the application process, see manoa.hawaii.edu/prospective/.
Acceptance to UH Manoa and the school is based on various criteria, including previous academic performance, types of courses previously taken, and the quality of prior experiences.
The Office of Admissions will complete a transfer credit evaluation for prior completed post-secondary level coursework or approved Advanced Placement (AP) high school coursework. The school will complete a transfer credit evaluation for prior completed post-secondary level coursework taken in architecture or related subjects after an applicant is accepted by UH Manoa. Architecture course requirements will be waived only for transfer credits that are deemed equivalent to courses offered by the school.
Students entering the pre-professional program directly from high school may potentially complete the pre-professional program in four years of full-time study. The time to complete the program by transfer students is based on a case-by-case evaluation of transfer credit.
Students entering the program holding a baccalaureate degree in a field unrelated to architecture enter the 108 credit professional DArch program. They may complete the program in approximately three or four years of full-time study dependent on evaluation of previous coursework of undergraduate equivalence.
Students entering the program holding a four-year pre-professional baccalaureate degree (e.g., BS architecture studies, BA architecture studies, BA environmental design) enter the 90 credit professional DArch program. Evaluation of previous coursework on a case by case basis is also undertaken for undergraduate equivalence.

Applicants holding a baccalaureate degree or higher must also complete a School of Architecture Supplemental Information for Admission form and submit the required documents by the stated deadline using the following steps:
