Aloha Pathways

The College of Social Sciences is an innovator in the UH System when it comes to partnering with other colleges in Hawaiʻi and beyond. CSS has created a simplified transfer experience known as the Aloha Pathways, with participating students reaping benefits that include:

  • A clear roadmap for transferring classes to UH Mānoa degrees.
  • Individualized concierge advising and admissions support.
  • The prestige of belonging to a premier research university consistently ranked in the top 1.5 percent globally.
  • Access to exploring different cultures and world-views, and a pipeline of transformative experiences expanding the mind.

Those who are not currently enrolled in a partnering college or university, or who have questions about transfer, can visit transfer tips. Check how courses may count at the UH Transfer Database.

After earning their associate degrees (or a majority of credits to earn their degrees) at UH’s seven community colleges, students in the counties of Oʻahu, Maui, Kauai and Hawaiʻi Island are well on their way to a CSS bachelor’s diploma through the Aloha Pathways program.

West Valley College students who successfully complete an Associate Degree for Transfer in several areas of interest can earn guaranteed admission to CSS with junior standing.

Students from international university campuses, including Beijing Foreign Studies University in China and Meiji Gakuin University in Japan, can pursue and earn a four-year U.S. university degree via CSS.
