Academic Advising

The University of Hawaiʻi schools and colleges offer a large range of academic advising services.

Or you can contact the Education Center in your area for distance learning assistance.

Technology Services

Information Technology Services (ITS) provides the University of Hawaiʻi community with a single, efficient resource for information regarding computer labs on campus, UH Email information, connecting to the Internet, computer software and hardware recommendations and network status. Students seeking assistance may go to the ITS Student website or contact the ITS Help Desk.

Financial Aid

Students receiving financial aid should contact their home campus financial aid office before registering for a distance learning class offered by another campus. Additional approval and requirements may be necessary for courses offered by another campus.


Students may contact the nearest Outreach Librarian for library assistance. To access all electronic databases, you will need your UH identification card number. Your UH student ID number is located under the "My Account" tab on your MyUH Portal account, or on your student ID card.


Review the Degree Programs and/or Course Listing to select the offerings that best suit your needs. UH Mānoa, UH Hilo and UH West Oʻahu campuses require an application for admission and acceptance prior to registration. For UH Mānoa Outreach College classes, current UH system students may register without submitting an Outreach College application. In addition, an application is not required of current UH Mānoa, UH Hilo, and UH West Oʻahu students who wish to register for lower-division UH Community College classes.

Registering for a distance learning class is similar to registering for a face-to-face class. Registration for all UH system classes is done via the MyUH Portal.

Test Centers

The instructor determines how exams are handled. Exams are either taken in-class or online for ITV courses. Exams for cable and online courses are completed online using Laulima. However, some instructors may require students to take their exams at a nearby UH Test Center. Students should always check with their instructor or course syllabus for test-taking instructions.


Online tutoring is provided on most UH campuses. If you are taking a course from another campus and your home campus does not provide online tutoring, you may want to contact the host campus (campus offering the course) to see if this service is available to you.
