Transfer Orientation

NSO Transfer sessions are designed to prepare students who have already had a taste of college life but will be attending the University of Hawai'i at Manoa as a new student. The goal is to provide incoming transfers with the direction and resources that will support them throughout their first year at UHM.

Transfer students, as part of their participation, will:

  • Meet with academic advisors to learn more about program and degree requirements and how to prepare for registration
  • Be able to register for their classes before many of their peers via a priority registration PIN number
  • Receive assistance from a team of highly trained and experienced current UHM student orientation leaders
  • Get acquainted with other new students
  • Learn about opportunities to become involved on campus
  • Sharpen their decision-making skills so their first year is safe and smart
  • Interact with representatives from across campus at the Resource Fair
  • Tour the campus with their leader who can tell them the in's and out's of the campus culture
  • Have lots of fun!

For parents who would like to attend, please visit the Parent Pages for more information about the Parent Orientation Program.
