New Student Programs

Our mission is to build a foundation for student’s full academic and social integration into the campus through the development of long lasting connections to other students, faculty, staff and student support resources; to build a supportive learning environment that promotes academic success; and to create a commitment to and understanding of what it means to be a proud member of our UH Hilo ʻohana.

We've Moved!

It's official, the New Student Programs office is in our new location on the first floor of the new Student Services Center. We're still in the process of unpacking, but we're setting up our office and looking forward to seeing everyone in our new space. Stop on by and say Hi.
