Focus

Focus requirements for UH transfer students (within-UH system transfer) are determined by the year students enter the UH system and the number of credits that UH Mānoa accepts. The following table applies to students who entered a UH campus in Spring 2005 or later. Students who entered UH prior to Spring 2005 should check with a UH Mānoa college advisor to determine their Focus requirements.

E = Contemporary Ethical Issues
H = Hawaiian, Asian, & Pacific Issues
O = Oral Communication
W = Writing Intensive

 
UHM Focus requirements for students who entered the UH system in Spring 2005 or later.
Number of accepted credit hours W* H E O
0-54 5 1 1 1
55-88 5 1 1 E or 1 O
89+ 5 1 none none

* At least 2 of the W courses must be numbered at the 300- or 400-level.

IMPORTANT: No current HawCC courses can be taken to fulfill UHM's H, E, or O requirements.

Hawaiian or Second Language

UHM Hawaiian or Second Language Requirement (HSL)
Most students are required to show competence at the 202 (or equivalent) level in Hawaiian or a second language by doing one of the following:

a) completing a four-semester sequence (usually 101, 102, 201, and 202) in a single language
b) demonstrating competence by taking a UH Mānoa exam if one is offered. Check with the UHM language department in question
c) receiving a language-requirement waiver. For example, waivers may be given to students who are native speakers of a language other than English. Contact the College of Languages, Linguistics, and Literature for details.

The Hawaiian or Second Language requirement has been modified or waived for students in the following schools and colleges: College of Business; College of Education; College of Engineering; School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene; School of Ocean, Earth Science, and Technology; College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources. Students in these colleges/schools should consult a college advisor. Students should be aware that changing their major may change their Hawaiian or Second Language requirement.
Credits for Previous Language Experience

All UHM students under the current General Education requirements with experience in a language other than English (including native speakers) may earn “back credits.” These students may take any UH Mānoa course, appropriate to their level, in which there is significant use of that language. (Appropriate level determined by placement exam or advisor; significant use determined by the course content.) Upon completion of this course, if students earn a letter grade of C (not C-) or better, they will receive between 3 and 16 back credits. Back credits may be earned for only one language. The student must take the course for a letter grade (not credit/no credit). Other restrictions also apply. Check with the appropriate language department for details and forms or at the HSL General Education website.

TOTAL CREDITS not applicable

 

Language courses taken at Hawai'i CC
Almost all lower-division language courses are currently accepted; the 4-semester language sequences (101, 102, 201, 202) are accepted.

*Course will be reviewed every five years.

**Course no longer offered. After UHM Admissions & Records evaluates your community college transcript, you will receive a transfer evaluation report that will state how this course transfers to UHM.
