Where to begin

How to meet with an advisor

Which are you?

Current Student
With a major

Current students who have declared a major are automatically assigned a faculty advisor within their department.

To find out who your advisor is, log in to your STAR degree program. If your advisor is unavailable (or if you wish to be assigned a different advisor) just visit the division office which your major falls under to get the ball rolling.

Questions about General Education and other graduation requirements can also be answered by the Advising Center. Setting up an appointment with the Advising Center is easy. Just call (808) 932-7776  or email uhhadvis@hawaii.edu

Current Student
Without a major

General/undeclared students are assigned to the Advising Center. To find out who your advisor is, log on to your STAR degree program. After doing so, call the Advising Center at (808) 932-7776  or email us at uhhadvis@hawaii.edu, to set up an appointment with your advisor. 

Current Student
Need to change major

We're available to meet with students who are either considering a major change or those who have already made up their minds and simply need to fill out the Change of Major form.

To schedule an appointment with the Advising Center, you may either call (808) 932-7776 or email us at uhhadvis@hawaii.edu.

Incoming Student
Transfer

Incoming transfer students who have declared a major are automatically assigned a faculty advisor within their department by the third week of the semester.

If you are still waiting to be assigned an advisor, you can speak to an advisor at the Advising Center. The transfer journey for each student can be a unique and sometimes trying experience. We're here to help make the transition as seamless as possible. You can schedule an appointment with the Advising Center by calling (808) 932-7776 or email uhhadvis@hawaii.edu.

Incoming Student
Freshman

All incoming freshmen are automatically assigned to an Advising Center advisor before beginning the first semester of the first year at UH Hilo.  By the 3rd week of instruction, each freshman will also be assigned to a faculty advisor in his or her major.

If you are still waiting to be assigned an advisor, you can also schedule an appointment with the Advising Center by calling (808) 932-7776 or email uhhadvis@hawaii.edu.

We also offer advising help to students who are still deciding on a major. Just call or email to set up an appointment.
