Dates and Prices


Congratulations on becoming a UH Warrior! 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.


Transfer Orientation Program (one-day program)

This program is designed for students living on O'ahu and includes information about academic advising, campus resources, and transitioning to your new campus environment. However, if you are not currently living on O'ahu and would like to attend the transfer orientation session, please feel free to sign up

Date(s): Friday, August 1st and Wednesday, August 13th

Cost: $75

Check in for NSO one-day sessions is open between 8:00 am-8:30 am. A resource fair which includes participation from a number of relevant university partners will start promptly at 8:00am. New students, as well as their accompanying family members, are strongly encouraged to attend. Continental breakfast will also be provided during the resource fair through 9:00am. This year's transfer program is tentatively scheduled to end at around 3:30 pm, with academic advising available for some majors between 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm.


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.

This program occurs the week before school starts and transfer students may have the opportunity to move into the residence halls during this week. If you are a transfer student attending WoW who has paid your housing fees and submitted a signed housing contract to the UHM Housing office, please contact the NSO Office as soon as possible for more information.

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.
