The Office of the Registrar provides all registration-related information, registration instructions for each semester except Summer, and information about obtaining copies of your transcripts.

Students are able to register for classes over the Web. MyUH at provides access to registration, final grades, unofficial transcripts, STAR degree audit, etc.


A student may obtain an official transcript of his or her academic record completed at UH Hilo. A fee is charged in advance for each transcript requested. Students who took classes at Hawaiʻi Community College (HawCC) prior to summer session 1992 need to request their transcripts from UH Hilo. Transcripts of HawCC classes from summer 1992 and thereafter must be obtained from HawCC.

If you are on campus and wish to obtain a transcript, file a written request at the Business Office.

If you are off campus, please follow the following steps:

  1. Submit a written request to the UH Hilo Registrar’s Office with the following information:
    1. Your legal name

  4. The regular processing time is within seven working days upon receipt of the request and payment. To expedite transcript requests, you may specify rush service for a higher fee of fifteen dollars ($15.00 US) per transcript. Rush transcripts are processed within 1–2 business days. Processing time for transcript requests may be extended during peak times of year such as the beginning or end of a semester.
