School of Architecture

Academic advising can be arranged for prospective students by contacting the school office.

New Students

Students who have been accepted into the School of Architecture must meet with a faculty adviser prior to registration. New students are expected to attend the school orientation usually scheduled in early August.

Continuing Students

All architecture majors who have not yet completed ARCH 102 must meet with a faculty adviser each semester prior to registering for classes for the following semester.


Undergraduates must successfully complete a comprehensive portfolio review prior to entering ARCH 401. Graduating seniors are required to apply for graduation. Forms are available from the school office.

Graduate Students

Graduate students are advised each semester by the school’s graduate chair.

Undergraduate Program

Five years of full-time study are usually required for most students in the bachelor of architecture program.

Admission Requirements

The school accepts freshmen as declared majors, transfers from other divisions of the University or other colleges, and those who have a previous degree in another discipline. However, because there are far more applicants than can be physically accommodated, admission requirements and screening procedures are more restrictive than those for other divisions at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa.

High school students planning architecture as a career are advised to take four years of English and mathematics (including algebra, geometry, analytic geometry, and trigonometry), plus art, chemistry, physics, freehand and mechanical drawing, public speaking, information and computer sciences, history, geography, and at least two years of a foreign language.

Students must apply for entrance to the School of Architecture as well as to the University. (Special application forms are available from the school.) Acceptance is based on various criteria, including previous academic performance, grade point average, types of courses previously taken, and related professional experience of the students.

Application Procedures

Students currently enrolled in other divisions of the Manoa campus must submit a completed School of Architecture application, with all required enclosures, to the school office no later than the published deadlines.

New students and transfers from community colleges and other universities must submit a completed School of Architecture application, with all required enclosures, to the School of Architecture and submit a completed University of Hawai‘i at Manoa Common Application Form to the University’s Office of Admissions and Records no later than the published deadlines.

Write or phone the school office for School of Architecture application forms. University of Hawai‘i at Manoa Common Application Forms can be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records.

Application Deadlines

Deadlines for School of Architecture applications are earlier than the University’s application deadlines. Application forms must be transmitted to the school by the first Monday in February (early decision) or the first Monday in March (regular decision) for fall semester. Application forms must be transmitted to the school by the first Monday in September for spring semester.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to inquire at the school office for information on specific admission and degree requirements.

Admissions for Fall Semester

The school accepts both incoming freshmen and students with advanced standing for admission in the fall semester. Students whose applications are completed by the February deadline will be evaluated for admission as early-decision candidates. Only those whose applications indicate exceptional promise will be accepted at this time. Successful early-decision candidates will be notified early (usually by the middle of March) of their admission to the school. Other applications will be reviewed again with the regular-decision candidates.

Freshmen entering the University from high school and admitted into the School of Architecture will be accepted conditionally and categorized as conditional majors by the School of Architecture until they have successfully completed introductory core and major course work.

Admissions for Spring Semester

The School of Architecture accepts for spring semester admission only students who qualify for advanced standing within the school based upon their academic record and experience. Applicants who wish to transfer from another architectural program or who have completed a significant number of prerequisite courses, have unusual skills in key prerequisite areas, and/or have significant professional experience may qualify for advanced standing.

Those who are considering application to the School of Architecture are encouraged to inquire at the school office for information on specific admission and degree requirements.

Program Requirements

General Education Core Requirements

University of Hawai‘i at Manoa General Education Core requirements for the School of Architecture vary from those required by other University divisions. The School of Architecture requires specific and additional core courses as part of the degree requirements for architecture majors. In addition, some courses not previously noted as satisfying the General Education Core have been approved by the University as satisfying the core for architecture majors. Present core requirements have been incorporated into the published degree requirements. University and school policy on major and core requirements is subject to change. The school will attempt to honor major and core requirements for graduation in force at the time a student enters the School of Architecture, but it is under no obligation to do so.

These approved core requirements for architecture majors may not necessarily apply for other University programs. Students who transfer to other Manoa campus divisions from the architecture program will be required to satisfy the published General Education Core.

Conversely, students who have completed the core requirements and who transfer into the architecture program may be required to take additional core courses in order to satisfy the architecture program’s major requirements.
