To help students graduate and succeed, the following services are provided to accepted TRIO Mānoa students:

Supplemental Academic Advising

TRIO Mānoa Advisors provide extra advising support for students! Students should continue to work closely with their school/college and major advisors. Maintaining communication with all advisors is crucial.

Find your primary advisors using the UHM Advising Guide.

The following are actions you must take with your primary school/college advisors:

  • Complete mandatory advising (Meeting with a TRIO Mānoa advisor will not satisfy your mandatory advising requirements and will therefore not lift any holds on registration).
  • Confirm your course registration for Course Program of Study (CPoS) purposes.
  • Complete all forms (e.g. concurrent enrollment, major declaration, etc.)
