At Chaminade, we educate students for successful careers—and for service to their communities. Our graduates are taking on the world, armed with a quality private education built on hands-on learning and critical thinking. And all of our academic programs are geared toward helping you seek out opportunities to build a more just, peaceful world.
Chaminade offers 23 direct entry programs that allow students to be formally admitted to both the university and the major program prior to enrolling. If you are interested in a direct entry program, you will indicate that on your application to the university, by choosing your declared major.
Do you have so many interests you are still deciding on which one to choose? Or perhaps, you don’t know where to begin? No problem! Simply choose Still Deciding on your Chaminade application. Wherever you find yourself with regard to choosing a major, Chaminade welcomes you to explore being a Silversword.

Oahu is known as “The Gathering Place”—and there’s little wonder why.
It’s the most populated of the Hawaiian Islands, and home to the state’s capital city. Hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the U.S. mainland and Asia flock to Oahu annually for its incredible surf and balmy climate, and for its culturally and historically significant sites.
Chaminade is nestled on a hilly 65-acre campus in Kaimuki, one of Honolulu’s most vibrant (and oldest) communities, and is a stone’s throw from Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach.
