What is the first thing I need to do to get connected to UHM's virtual community?
- Course registration at UHM is done entirely online
- Important University offices (eg. academic advising, cashier's, financial aid, and your major department, etc.) will contact you only through your hawaii.edu email
- You can access a number of scholarships offered only to UH students
- Your instructors will contact you through your hawaii.edu email
- A UH account is required to reserve a space in orientation
NOTE: If you have a preferred email account, be sure to have your UH email account forwarded to that email address.
The New Student Orientation staff will also communicate with you via your UH email account, so it's a good idea to get into the habit of checking it frequently.
