Pre-Business Students (UH Mānoa)

How to Apply

Continuing classified UH Mānoa students must fill out an internal application that will be made available online in February for Fall admission and in September for Spring admission. Deadlines will be strictly enforced.


Transfer Course Work

Students who have taken pre-business core classes at schools outside of the UH system may submit a program petition for course equivalency. In the event that a petition is required, please retain a copy of your detailed course syllabus for submission. All completed and approved petitions must be received by December 1st for Spring admission and by June 1st for Fall admission.

Students taking classes outside of the UH system may also check their unofficial transfer credit course equivalencies to see how their credits may transfer to UH Mānoa.

Students taking classes within the UH system can check the articulation of their transfer courses on the UH General Education Transfer and Articulation Website.

Students who have received AP, CLEP, or IB credit in the past can submit an official copy of their scores to the University of Hawaii at Mānoa for review. UH Mānoa grants waivers and/or credits on the basis of scores received on the CEEB Advanced Placement Examinations.
