Welcome to the Hilo Advising Center!

We are experiencing increased traffic on all modalities due to the upcoming Fall 2022 registration and reduced staffing. The anticipated wait time is 20 minutes and students will be helped in the order they appear in the Hilo Express Advising Kiosk, regardless of modality.

Drop-in advising (Zoom, phone and in-person walk-in) hours are from 8:00am to 3:45pm (HST), Monday through Friday, except holidays. You must check-in to the Hilo Express Advising Kiosk and the next available UH Hilo advisor will be able to assist you. If you call the office, you will be placed into the queue and helped when the next advisor is available.

Face masks are required for all in-person advisement.

First year freshmen, we are suspending appointment scheduling in STAR Balance for August 15-30. If you would like to speak with your advisor, drop into the Hilo Express Advising Kiosk during that time.
