Dates and Prices

Congratulations on your acceptance! The staff and leaders of the New Student Orientation (NSO) program are excited to meet all of you and welcome you to the UH-Manoa (UHM) campus.

As a freshman, you can attend a one-day session or WoW. If you come to a one- day session, you do not need to attend the Week of Welcome orientation sessions. Similarly, if you plan to attend the Week of Welcome orientation sessions, you do not need to come to a one-day session. The information you will receive will be the same, just the format is different. However, if you do want to attend both a one-day session and Week of Welcome, please contact our office to find out about the registration cost for attending both sessions (one-day session and Week of Welcome as a discount is available).

The Freshmen Orientation Program (one-day program)

This program is designed for students living on O'ahu and includes information about academic, campus resources, and transitioning to a new campus environment. However, if the student is not currently living on O'ahu and would like to attend the one-day orientation session, please feel free to sign up.

Week of Welcome (WoW)

WoW was initially envisioned for new students and their families coming from the neighbor islands, Continental U.S. and internationally. However, students from Oahu are not only welcome, they are encouraged to attend if they haven't been able to register for a one-day freshman session.

In addition to providing information about academic advising, campus resources and the new campus environment, WoW sessions will also provide information about living in Hawai'i (culture, activities, surrounding campus environment, etc.) and give students with extra time to meet and interact with other new students.

Date(s): August 18th, 2015 - August 21st, 2015
