Transfer Credits

Check the UH System Course Transfer Database and cross-reference their equivalent courses with the UH Manoa General Catalog for designations. Information on these requirements can be found in the UH Manoa General Catalog and UHM advising centers. Any missing graduation requirements will need to be met by the end of the online RN to BS

Evaluation of transfer credits occurs once the student has been accepted for admission, has submitted the tuition deposit along with statement of intention to enroll, and has provided all official transcripts to the UH Manoa Office of Admissions. UH Manoa will only accept credits from institutions fully accredited by U.S. regional accrediting associations.

Upon admission, the program advisor does a personalized review of completed college coursework to develop the plan for program completion. If a student’s previous ADN or college coursework does not meet minimum requirements, additional courses may be required to meet UH Manoa requirements for the BS degree.  For more information about credits, visit the Curriculum page.

English Language Proficiency

All applicants who are not born in the U.S. are required to have a certain skill level of the English language. More information is available on the International Admission Requirements website:
