*The cohorted Middle school level program focuses on Secondary education in addition to Middle, i.e., students aged 10-18, grades 4-12. Students who wish to focus solely on Secondary education should enroll in the Secondary school level program.
All CS programs offer on-campus, evening classes that are currently held from 4:30-7:00p.m. Most CS programs also offer hybrid courses (both online & evening). See the UH Mānoa Catalog for details.
The Middle (and Secondary) school level program (MLMED) is cohorted with almost all classes taken with the same group of students. MLMED cohorts begin annually during the summer semesters; however, applicants are admitted for the subsequent fall semester as UH does not have a "summer admission."
