Enrolling in 'Ohana online services
Enrolling in 'Ohana online services during your grace period
Once the UH Identity Management System detects that you are no longer affiliated with the University of Hawaii (i.e. you are no longer an active student, staff, faculty, or department affiliate), your UH Username will be placed in a grace period. These instructions describe the steps you need to take to enroll in our 'Ohana online services during the grace period, which will preserve your UH email account, in addition to other 'Ohana online services (see Ask Us 932).
Navigate to www.hawaii.edu/username and login with your UH Username and password.
Once you are logged in, you should see a Enroll in our 'Ohana online services button. Click on this button before the expiration date stated in red.
Note: If the button is grayed out (not clickable), or if there is a red X next to You have setup your secret Questions and Answers, this means you need to setup two secret questions and answers before you can enroll. To do this, click on either the secret Questions and Answers link or the Change Password Reset Questions link.
You should see a confirmation message that your enrollment was successful. You will receive a renewal notification via email when your enrollment is three months from expiring.
