Ease in to college with one or two classes in the summer and take advantage of additional resources and activities designed specifically to make your transition from high school to college a smooth one.

The Early Start Program gives you a chance to register for high demand courses in the summer so you can fulfill basic requirements earlier and with the bonus of program staff to help you along the way. Interact with faculty and advisors who can help you navigate your academic career. Even though the program may be online this summer, we hope to help you get to know the campus, including Mānoa’s libraries, recreational and health facilities, the Campus Center, and other student resources during weekly sessions led by a student mentor.


Scholarships may be available for Pell-eligible students and would cover UH Mānoa Summer Session II tuition, term fees, and lab fees for one course, including a lab section, if applicable (this will amount to 3-5 credits per student).
