Web: counseling

The challenges of choosing the right career, achieving or maintaining one’s independence, relating successfully to others, and leading a happy and successful life converge during a student’s college years. College life adds the concerns of exams, term papers, quizzes, and class reports. Even students who are prepared to do their best in college may experience problems. The Counseling and Student Development Center (CSDC) provides the following services to assist students.

Career Counseling

Students should choose their majors before they progress very far in their academic programs. Most students expect their academic studies to lead to specific careers upon graduation. Career counseling explores strengths and limitations, interests and values, personality and skills, and applies this understanding to developing academic and occupational plans. (See also “Manoa Career Center.”

Personal Counseling

Some people occasionally, even regularly, feel worried, unhappy, and depressed. Lack of confidence, fear, low self-esteem, inability to get along with others, loneliness, not being able to cope with people and situations, and similar problems can be discussed with one of CSDC’s professional counselors. All matters discussed in counseling are confidential and will not affect academic standing.

Psychiatric Consultation

People who find themselves seriously depressed, unable to control their behavior, or doing things they don’t understand may want and need psychiatric consultations. A talk with a counselor is required to determine whether psychiatric consultation is needed.


Testing is frequently used as part of counseling to help students understand themselves better and plan their careers. Counselors will discuss with the student which tests to take and will interpret them after they are scored. In addition, the Testing Office administers computer-based exams, such as GRE, TOEFL and PRAXIS, and paper-based exams such as LSAT and MPRE. To schedule an exam, go to the respective exam’s website, such as, and exams/mpre/. The Testing Office also offers individual proctoring for student taking distance learning classes from a non-UH system campus, who require proctored exams.


Workshops and seminars to promote personal development and academic success are offered throughout the year. Stress management, assertiveness, improving self-esteem, career and life planning, and coping with difficult people are just a few of the topics that are available. Sessions to address specific needs can be developed and conducted at the request of faculty or a group of students.


CSDC provides consultation services for individual students, faculty, and groups that may need help in solving organizational problems, overcoming interpersonal difficulties, and planning staff development programs.

The KOKUA Program provides disability access services to UH Manoa students with documented physical and/or mental disabilities, e.g., health disabilities, hearing impairments, learning disabilities, mobility restrictions, psychological disabilities, visual impairments, etc. Services include alternate format, campus advocacy, disability access counseling, early registration, faculty liaison, note-taking, sign language interpreting, assistive technology, testing accommodations, etc. Students with disabilities who may require disability access services are strongly encouraged to contact KOKUA of their needs as far in advance as possible to ensure better campus access.

In particular, new college students should contact KOKUA for program orientation at least four months prior to the start of their entering semester. Although KOKUA strives to ensure campus access for students with disabilities, it is necessary to note that the century old campus (located on hilly terrain) does pose architectural barriers that are being addressed by on-going projects.

The university is committed to ensuring equal access to the Manoa experience by students with disabilities. Equal access is best achieved through partnering involving the student, KOKUA, and the rest of the campus community.
