I'm a Transfer Student, do I really need to attend Orientation?
Need is a subjective word. If you value education and want to make the most out of your experience here at UH Hilo, we would say, Yes. Orientation isn't simply a campus tour, nor is it full of general information about being a generic student. UH Hilo's Spring New Student Orientation is geared towards supporting the needs of Transfer Students. We'll explore how UH Hilo is different from the institution you previously attended, how our policies work, how our support centers operate, and how our university is awesome and amazing! You'll get to meet many of your new professors, new classmates, and new clubs and organization for you to get involved in. It's more than a campus tour, it's about setting you up to be successful here at UH Hilo... And if you want a campus tour, we can arrange for that too.
Free Shuttle Service... Be sure to reserve your seat!
On Wednesday, January 8, 2014 we will have shuttles available to pick you up from the airport and bring you to campus. This service is free and is a way for us to welcome you to Hilo and into our ʻohana (family).
The International Student Services office will have shuttle service available on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 for international students.
Students interested in free shuttle services can visit the Airport Shuttle Information page to reserve their seat.
