Current students must complete an advising sheet each semester and have it approved by their faculty advisor prior to registering for any LIS courses. Incoming new students will consult with an advisor and register at the New Student Orientation.
Unclassified students who wish to enroll in LIS courses should send email to LISinfo@hawaii.edu to check course availability, with the understanding that currently enrolled LIS students (and incoming new students) have priority for available seats. Unclassified student registration cannot occur until after each fall/spring semester's New Student Orientation has completed, although summer session courses are open to anyone. Those without an MLS, MLIS, or MLISc degree must have permission from the course instructor to enroll in any LIS course.
Note: any UH employee using a tuition waiver, who is not already a classified student working on their MLISc degree, but who wishes to enroll in an LIS course, must contact the Program far in advance of the start of the semester to make arrangements; please do not wait until the first day of the semester to request course approval.
For all other schedule questions, please send email to LISinfo@hawaii.edu.
Course registration is conducted online via the MyUH Services registration system. Refer to the UH Academic Calendar for registration deadlines. For additional information about registration policies and procedures, please refer to the Registration & Advising Overview pages.
Note: Some courses are offered through the UH Mānoa Outreach College extension schedule. When registering for LIS courses that have an "[ES]" notation, select that semester's extension option when registering online.
Three-year Tentative Schedule*
In order to help students plan out their studies in the LIS Program, the faculty makes the three-year schedule projection available (see above link). This is a tentative schedule only, and is subject to change. Students should refer to the schedules published each semester to confirm that a course is being offered.
Location and Schedule of Courses
Courses are held at the UH Mānoa campus in Honolulu. Online and hybrid course delivery options are available as resources permit.
Classes meet once a week in the fall and spring semesters. Summer sessions may include three-week courses meeting daily Monday through Friday, or six-week courses meeting three times weekly. During summer sessions, do not plan on being employed for more than five hours a week during this period due to the time-intensive demands of the summer schedule.
