Recommended Class Scheduling

The objective of this schedule is to recommend that students balance their schedules with a combination of science and non-science courses. When a course is unavailable for registration, substituting with a course in the same science/ non-science category is encouraged. Please refer to the applicable checklist when planning your courses based on your year of admission into the UH system.

Courses taken at any UH campus could apply toward prerequisites for the UH Hilo BSN Program under an articulation agreement among all UH campuses. Print a copy of the equivalencies by clicking the link: 2010 UH Hilo Systemwide Articulated Courses. For other course equivalencies not on that list, please check on course equivalencies throughout the UH system/
