Congratulations on finishing Spring 2020 & CR/NC Option for A-F Graded Courses

Congratulations on finishing this abnormal semester! Our ELI teaching staff made the transition to online classes after Spring Break pretty seamlessly: we thank our teachers and students for being flexible and #ManoaStrong!

Once grades are officially rolled on Wednesday, May 20 (~4:30PM HST), students have the option to change their A-F grades to CR/NC. This period will end, and grades will be finalized on Friday, May 22, 4:00PM HST. If you have questions about this option and how any changes will affect your progress, please contact your major advisor ASAP or Priscilla Faucette @ faucette@hawaii.edu. This mainly affects ESL 100 students, but all ELI students are advised to talk to their advisors if you have any questions about your grades from this semester.

Finally, check out our teachers and students in our classes online!
