Aloha Guide

Information for non-resident applicants to the UH Library and Information Science Program.

Hula skirts, surfboards and sunshine–as a non-resident, it might be a bit difficult to imagine what being a graduate student in beautiful Hawaii might be like. The idea of studying at the University of Hawaii Library and Information Science (LIS) Program sounds pretty exciting, but it probably has you feeling somewhat anxious.

The information in this guide was gathered from the UH Graduate Division, the MyUH website, the eHawaiiGov website, and the UH Manoa Online Catalog, and was edited and adapted for incoming classified graduate students entering the Library & Information Studies program.
