Pre-Registration through STAR

We are excited to have you as one of the newest members of the University of Hawaii at Manoa community as well as a member of the freshman class. We look forward to meeting you and working with you during the next four years along your academic journey.

Your first step in this journey is to complete a web-based pre-registration course request process. We use the information that you submit through this website to register you for courses you will take during your first semester. While it is important for you to review all materials carefully, you can make modification to your fall course schedule after you arrive on campus. After reading the helpful hints, you should be ready to login and complete your Pre-registration.

Helpful hints:

  • Ensure you have a UH UserName and password. A UH UserName is the same as the UH email address without the “” An example of this is, if you email is “” your username is “Joesoap” and your password is the same password you use to get into your UH email. If you do not have a UH email address please follow this link:
  • Allow yourself plenty of time to explore the links and read descriptions of our General Educational requirements, majors and courses.
  • Please be mindful, after you submit your web pre-registration, you cannot make alterations. However, you will be able to view your choices.
  • At any time prior to submitting your pre-registration selections, you may choose to join a learning community although you may want to keep in mind that you can only click submit on either a learning community web form or a pre-registration web form not both.

After you submit your choices you will receive a copy of your choices at your UH email account.

Upon successful completion of Pre-Registration you should be taken to a confirmation page. There is helpful information at the bottom of the page regarding information about taking care of any holds you may have, placement exam information, etc. This Pre-Registration process must be completed by July 27th.

If you choose Pre-Registration, we ask that you consider taking a few moments to participate in a survey available upon registration submission, as we would really like to hear your opinion of the process so we may adapt and grow to meet the needs of future freshmen.

Please note: Participation in the STAR Pre-Registration does NOT constitute your final schedule. Rather, you are placing a request for those courses, which we will do our best to honor. Your final schedule will be created by August 5th based on your selections and placement test results.

We thank you for choosing University of Hawaii at Manoa and sincerely look forward to creating an engaging relationship with you along your academic journey.
