The Shidler Freshman Direct Admit Program (DAP) is designed for high achieving incoming freshmen who wish to enter the UH Shidler College of Business and get a head start on their Business curriculum.
Outstanding high school seniors entering UH Mānoa in the fall are invited upon acceptance to the university. Selective admission for the Shidler Freshman Direct Admit Program is highly competitive and based on students' Grade Point Average (GPA) and SAT or ACT scores.
On your UH Mānoa application, simply designate "Pre-Business" or any specific business major as your first choice major, and you will automatically be considered for the Shidler DAP. No separate application is necessary.
The final deadline for the UH Mānoa application is March 1st.
If you would like to provide us with additional information such as a resume, personal statement, or updated test scores, please visit www.shidler.hawaii.edu/freshman-dap/admissions.
DAP students are introduced to the Shidler College of Business curriculum beginning their freshman year. Students are grouped in two business related courses reserved strictly for the DAP cohort of that year. A copy of the four year plan can be found here.
AP and IB credits are awarded to students who meet the minimum UH Manoa criteria. A list of scores needed to obtain AP and IB credit can be found here:
