New Submission Process for UHM-1 and UHM-2 Forms

Effective immediately, we are implementing new submission procedures for UHM-1 and UHM-2 forms as follows:

  • All UHM-1 and -2 forms will be submitted electronically (no hardcopies will be processed). Please create a single pdf file for each course that consists of the appropriate UHM form and syllabus, as well as any additional attachments to be included (e.g., relevant memos, additional justification documents required for new course proposals for Graduate Division-administered programs, etc.).
  • All forms will be submitted to OVCAA at uhmcrse@hawaii.eduIn the past, forms were submitted to Graduate Division or General Education, but must now be emailed to They will then be routed to the appropriate offices for review.  Please ensure that all internal reviews (curriculum committee review, etc.) are completed before submitting to your dean’s office for review, approval, and submission to OVCAA.

Please note, OVCAA updated the UHM-1 and UHM-2 forms and the submission procedures in Summer 2020, but the guidelines are still under revision. If you have any questions about the process or require status updates on existing forms, please email
