Review Date: July 2025
The purpose of EP 5.209 is to carry out the intent of the Board of Regents’ policy to make the student transfer experience simple and predictable (Board of Regents Policy RP 5.214).
This policy provides the guidelines for transfer within the University of Hawai`i (UH) system, including (1) the principles and assumptions underlying the policy, (2) the transfer and applicability of academic credit, including acceptance of the UH Associate in Arts degree as fulfilling UH baccalaureate admission and general education core (foundations/diversification or basic/area) requirements, (3) the transfer of students, (4) articulation of courses and programs, (5) lead responsibilities, and (6) related policy issues.
Transfer – the process of moving academic credits from a program at one postsecondary institution to a program at another. Students may transfer vertically (two-year to four-year), horizontally (two- year to two-year, four-year to four-year) or in reverse (four-year to two-year).
Articulation – agreements that guide the transfer of students and typically address the transfer of credit, specific courses, packages of courses, and related academic requirements.
Selective Admissions Program – a selective admissions program is a program with program-specific admissions requirements and application (e.g., minimum number of earned credits, minimum class standing, completion of specific courses or tests, grade point ratio requirements, etc.).
Pinning – the process of creating a four-year degree pathway from a UH Community College to a four-year campus is called pinning, meaning that a student can “pin” (or indicate) their future four-year major, even while at a Community College
