To be eligible to register you must be one of the following:
- A continuing classified UH Mānoa student enrolled in the current semester (not withdrawn, graduated, suspended, or dismissed)
- An incoming UH Mānoa student (newly-accepted, re-admitted, or transfer)
- An unclassified UH Mānoa student (continuing or incoming)
Note: Students admitted through the Outreach College for evening or summer courses only are not eligible to enroll in regular fall or spring classes. Visit the Outreach College for more information.
Before registering for classes, meet with your academic advisor to review degree requirements and to get help selecting courses. Some programs will place a hold on your account until you have met with your advisor.
Check with your college or school's Advising office for more advising information.
Certain university offices may prevent you from registering or making registration changes (e.g., adding/dropping a course) by placing a hold on your account. This usually occurs if you have not fulfilled certain requirements (e.g., financial obligations, health clearance, academic advising, etc.). Visit Holds to learn how to view and remove holds placed on your account.
You are assigned a specific registration time according to your student classification for a given semester (continuing classified, incoming, or unclassified). See the Academic Calendar for specific dates. Your registration time assignment will be posted in MyUH approximately two weeks before the start of your registration period.
To view your registration time:
- Log in to MyUH
- Select Check Registration Status
- Select the appropriate term and Submit
- Review your registration date and time
You can also check the Registration Timetable (MyUH Info). When using the timetable, note the number of credits you have already earned (do not include courses in progress).
Once your assigned time begins you can continue to register during the designated registration periods for your student classification. See the Academic Calendar for specific dates.
Note: UH Mānoa students are eligible to register for UH community college courses. To check your registration time, visit the Registration Timetable for the campus where you would like to take the course.
Employees and their spouses or domestic partners who wish to use an employee tuition waiver must register during the late registration period. Visit UH Employee Registration & Tuition Waivers for registration instructions.
Check Class Availability lists available classes and sections. Consult course listings regularly for the most up-to-date information on class cancellations, course additions, and changes in meeting times, locations, and instructors.
To avoid problems during registration, review course restrictions and prerequisites before attempting to register. In Check Class Availability look for a Restriction in the Title column or in the University Catalog look for course prerequisite requirements in the course descriptions.
You will get an error message while registering if you do not meet the requirements for a course. If you have questions regarding your eligibility to register for a course, contact the department offering the course.
New Spring 2017: STAR Guided Pathway System (GPS) Registration (tutorial)
STAR GPS is a new guided registration system that will be available for some UH Mānoa students. It will allow them to select courses that meet their major and degree requirements while registering online. Students will be notified via UH email two weeks prior to registration that they have been selected to register via STAR GPS for Spring 2017 courses. These students will have the opportunity to preview the new registration system prior to their registration date and will no longer use the MyUH Portal to register. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
If you were not selected to register via STAR GPS, follow these instructions.
- Check Class Availability to locate Course Reference Numbers (CRN)
- Log in to MyUH
- Select Add/Drop Courses
- Select the appropriate term and Submit
- Select University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
- Enter Course Reference Number(s)
- Submit Changes
- Carefully review the Status column for registration error messages
- Successfully-registered courses will show the status as "Registered on Web"
- See Registration Errors for instructions on how to clear error messages
- Review classes, meeting times, credits, and grading options; make adjustments as needed
- Select Review My Class Schedule
- Choose Print Class Schedule to print
If you are registered for courses at UH Mānoa, you are required to submit full tuition and fees payment or enroll in the installment payment plan by the published deadline for those courses.
The tuition and fees charts contain tuition rates for residents and non-residents. Please make sure that your tuition status classification is correct before submitting payment. If you feel that there is an error in your tuition status or would like to make a change to another tuition status, the last day to make changes to all tuition statuses is the 10th day of the semester. You may petition for a change at the Admissions Information Counter, Queen Liliʻuokalani Center for Student Services, room 001.
Note: Tuition and fees charges for courses taken at other institutions (i.e., the community colleges) and extension courses are in addition to UH Mānoa tuition and fees and are charged separately. For extension courses offered by Outreach College, you must select the "extension" term when registering and making payment (i.e., for "Fall 2013 Extension" term, select Fall Ext 2013).
Refer to Paying Your Bill for additional payment instructions.
You can adjust your schedule by adding and/or dropping classes on MyUH during the Add/Drop period. Review the Academic Calendar for specific Add/Drop dates and deadlines for your student classification. Visit Add or Drop Courses for policies and procedures and to learn how registration changes can affect you.
Note: Add and drop deadlines for courses taken at other institutions (i.e., the community colleges) and extension courses may differ from UH Mānoa "day school" add and drop deadlines. Visit Outreach College for details on add and deadlines for extension courses.
Remember to check your grades at the end of the semester to determine if you still meet the prerequisites for your registered courses. If you no longer meet the prerequisites for a course (i.e., you did not receive an acceptable grade for a prerequisite), you should drop the course. If you have any questions about your eligibility, contact the department offering the course.
