Transfer Student Frequently Asked Questions

1: If I don’t receive my AA degree until after registration begins, can I ignore the General Education (GE) Requirements because they will be waived?

Yes, you may register around the GE requirements, when you receive your AA please make sure that an updated transcript showing the AA Degree is sent to the UH Hilo Admissions office. Once the transcript is processed your GE requirements will be waived.

If you notice that your GE requirements are still not waived 6 weeks after your AA degree has been awarded please contact the UH Hilo Office of the Registrar.

Please note that a prior AA degree will waive your GE Requirements but you will still need to complete the UH Integrative](/catalog/integrative) (Hawaii Pan Pacific (HPP), Global Community Citizenship (GCC) and Writing Intensive (WI)) Requirements prior to graduation.

2: I don’t see my transfer credits on my record or courses did not transfer the way I expected them to.

Please contact the UH Hilo Admissions office to ensure that your transcripts have been received and evaluated. We recommend contacting the Admissions office early to avoid any potential duplicate registration due to transfer credits.

3: Can I look at the registration website now?

Yes, you can currently access the STAR GPS registration system before it is your time to register. Registration opens for transfer students on Saturday April 15, 2017 at 6:00 AM.  You are able to pre select courses now so that when it is your turn to register you will simply have to hit the “Submit Registration” button.

4: I am receiving a Prerequisite Error for a class that I am trying to register for. I took the prerequisite course at another institution before transferring to UH Hilo. What do I do?

Please contact the Instructor of the course to explain your situation., it helps to have the syllabi from the course you took or copies of your transcript on hand to help the Instructor with their decision.

Instructor contact information can be found in the UH Hilo Directory.
