Online Advising Resources
You will find a comprehensive collection of policies, procedures, and current registration information on the faculty section of the “UH Hilo Advising Center” webpage of the UH Hilo web site, including an online advising handbook:
STAR Student Information System. A comprehensive review of students’ records is available through STAR for Advisors. STAR provides current reports on each student’s course work at UH Hilo, at all institutions in the UH sytem, as well as courses accepted in transfer from institutions outside the system. Progress in General Education, graduation requirements, and major requirements is also reported in STAR,
The STAR information system can be accessed by faculty advisors and administrators only on authorized computers on campus: https://www.star.hawaii.edu:10011/admininterface .
Training in STAR is available to all faculty through arrangement with the Office of the Registrar (932-7634 or 932-7447) or the Advising Center (932-7776). The first step is to obtain security clearance for STAR; start this process at http://hilo.hawaii.edu/registrar/BannerStarAccess.php#STAR
Students also have access to their graduation audit reports through STAR for Students through MyUH.
General Education requirements. Details about the GE program, in effect in Fall 2011 and applying to students entering UH Hilo for the first time in Fall 2011, can be found on the General Education webpage: http://hilo.hawaii.edu/academics/gened
