Manoa Peer AdvisorsJoshua Domingo
The Manoa Peer Advisors at the Advising Center assist fellow students with creating academic plans as well as answer any questions regarding registration and guiding students about where/how to get information on campus. We send out emails to students in the AH & LLL majors to sign up for advising appointments, so be sure to check your email accounts on a regular basis!
Initial AdvisingFor Incoming Freshmen and Transfer Students – 60 Minutes
Initial Advising is basically our way of saying “Welcome to the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa!” We’re here to provide information and support to help students who are coming in to UHM for the very first time. We can ease many of your concerns, including how to register, plan out your classes, and adjust to the college lifestyle. Not sure where to go to get certain things done? We can help and redirect you to the correct place if you’re feeling a bit lost on where to find things on campus.
We’re students just like you and we understand a lot of the stress most incoming students go through. Please feel free to contact us and ask us any questions that may come up.
Mandatory Academic Planning (MAP)For Incoming Freshmen and Transfer Students – 60 Minutes
A MAP, or Mandatory Academic Plan, is basically your customized 4-year plan in order to graduate from UHM on time.
We go over what options you have in order to fulfill your General Education requirements as well as where you should go to get more information on your Major class requirements. After our meeting, we highly recommend you see your Major advisor to confirm your plan.
We want to give you the tools and resources necessary to properly plan for all of your semesters. After this session, you are free to change and rework your plan, just be sure to check your changes with an advisor. If you need any more assistance, please contact us using the contact form at the bottom of this page.

All you need is your UH ID to check in at the front desk. Other than that, just come in and we’ll be here to assist you in any way possible.
Optional: If you would like to speed up the process in Mandatory Academic Planning, you can fill out a MAP on your own and bring it in for us to double check and confirm that it’s good to go.
