Notes:
  1. UH West Oʻahu does not offer fully online-only degree programs. Lower-division coursework (first two years) needs to be completed via in-person and online classes at UH West O'ahu, UH Community Colleges, or accepted as transfer credits from an accredited institution outside of the UH System.
  2. PUBA 101 is a prerequisite for some LTC core courses and electives, while fulfilling a PUBA core. If a student is admitted to UHWO in year 3, PUBA 101 may be taken during year 3 semester 1. If student registers for PUBA 319 in year 3, semester 1, the student may request a pre-req override and take both PUBA 101 and PUBA 319 in the same semester.
