Admission to BSCE and BCNST Programs
Applicants to the undergraduate program must meet the Requirements for Admission to UH Mānoa and have completed high school courses in trigonometry, physics and chemistry. The University of Hawaii also grants waivers and/or credits on the basis of Advanced Placement Examinations.
Applications are first screened by the Office of Admissions & Records and are then forwarded to the College of Engineering for approval.
Admission of Freshmen
Students applying for admission as freshmen must submit an application, official scores from the SAT-I Reasoning Test or American College Test (ACT), high school transcripts, and recommendations from school officials. Applicants taking the General Education Development (GED) high school-equivalency test must submit GED results in addition to high school transcripts. Applicants who have been home-schooled need to be 17 years of age or older and are expected to meet the same admission criteria required of other applicants. Home-schooled applicants should contact the Admissions Office for further information.
Admission of International Students
International students wishing to apply must submit a System Application Form and a Supplemental Form for International Applicants. If admitted, international students must receive two clearances in order to register: (1) University Health Services clearance documenting adherence with health regulations, and (2) International Student Services (ISS) clearance documenting adherence to international student regulations and proof of adequate health insurance. NOTE: International applicants with a non-immigrant visa status other than student status should contact the ISS. Federal restrictions on full-time study may apply.
Admission of Transfer Applicants
Transfer applicants are those currently or previously enrolled at a college or university other than the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
