Bachelor of Arts Degree Program

Degree Information


Learners may enter a Bachelor's degree program with a minimum of one year of undergraduate credit (30 semester units) and one year of credit for documented life/work experience. It is preferable for the learner to have completed two years of undergraduate work before entering Honolulu University, as the University does not generally offer lower division courses. Fifty percent of acceptable documented life/work experience credit permitted.

Learners entering the University with only one year of transfer credit (plus one year of documented life/work experience credit) will need to complete 60 units of credit since 120 total semester units are required for graduation. Learners enrolling with more than 120 semester units of acceptable transfer credit must complete a minimum of 30 semester units of coursework through the University to earn a Bachelor's degree.

It is recommended that the applicant complete the general education requirements at another institution since the University does not offer lower division general education coursework (except in special tutorial arrangements).
