Academic contacts and resources
Students with a declared a major will be assigned a faculty advisor in their academic major and should contact the faculty directly for advising to discuss course selection and sequencing in the major. Advisors can be found on MyUH Services or STAR for Students.
For clarification about General Education and graduation requirements, all students may contact the Advising Center , however students should still consult with the academic department(s).
General ("undeclared") students are assigned to an advisor in the Advising Center. Some undeclared students are assigned to specific faculty:
- ELI students: Julie Mowrer
- Exploratory Health Sciences: Lyssa Sakamoto
- Pre-engineering: Shawon Rahman
- Pre-pharmacy: Lyssa Sakamoto (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Incoming transfer students must resolve all transfer issues, such as outstanding transcripts, with the Admissions Office before the end of the first semester at UH Hilo. Registration questions may be directed to the Office of the Registrar.

Registration and health clearance
The State of Hawaiʻi mandates that certain health requirements must be met for entry to post-secondary educational institutions and you may register for classes prior to submitting your health clearance. However, you will be dis-enrolled if you don't complete this requirement prior to the start of the term. Download and complete the Mandatory Health History Form and submit to the Student Medical Services Center. For more information call the SMS Center at (808) 932-7369.
