Every Warrior’s journey has a path. For Fall Semester, get an early start on creating your class schedule through ACE or STAR. Visit to begin creating your class schedule.
  • ACE: Think freshman interest groups - these are grouped classes based on your major and will be experienced alongside 15 other students. This is a great way to meet new friends, too!
  • STAR: Think a la carte - these are non-grouped classes based on your major.
We encourage you to meet with an academic advisor. Each College and School provides advising services. The cover letter to your acceptance packet denotes the College or School that you are admitted. Undecided on a major? You will meet with an advisor in the Mānoa Advising Center.

For Spring Semester, please see your academic advisor regarding your schedule.
