How to Register

Current Registration Start Dates:
Refer to the Registration Timetable for the registration start dates. Once registration begins it is continuous through the late registration period for the course. To view important course deadline dates, go to the Academic Calendar page.

Please note: If you are on a payment plan for the Spring 2014 semester, any summer tuition charged to your account before March 21, 2014 will be included in your last installment deadline for the Spring 2014 semester. Therefore, we would strongly advise those currently on the Spring 2014 payment plan to register after March 21.

Getting Started

If you are not a current UH System student or if you will be graduating from a UH System campus before the term begins, you need to submit a UHM Outreach College credit application form, see Application Information.

After you are admitted, it is mandatory to create a UH username and email account. Your UH username is used to register, view your grades, use Laulima, access email and other online services. Important information from University administrators and instructors will be sent to your UH email address, therefore, check your email regularly. Email sent to your UH email is considered an official channel of communication by the University. Go to UH Username Practices page for more information or if you need assistance, contact the ITS Help Desk at (808) 956-8883 or email help@hawaii.edu.

Complete the MyUH student tutorial before entering the system for the first time.

  • Search for your course(s) on the Class Availability page. Make note of the course reference number(s) (CRN) to be used for registration.
  • Courses in the Fall Extension terms have 4-digit CRNs beginning with the number 1.
  • Courses in the Spring Extension terms have 4-digit CRNs beginning with the number 3.
  • Courses in Summer Session 1 & 2 have 5-digit CRNs beginning with the number 9.
  • Courses in the Summer Extension terms have 4-digit CRNs beginning with the number 4.
  • Look at the start and end dates of your selected courses; numerous courses do not begin on the first day of the term.

Cancelled Classes

Course cancellation decisions are made about a week before the course begins. Verify updated class information (status of classes, including cancellations) by checking your schedule "Review My Class Schedule" on MyUH.

If your class is cancelled, you may select an alternate course. Otherwise, a 100% tuition refund is issued in 4–6 weeks.

Maximum Credits

Undergraduate students who request enrollment in 20 or more credit hours and graduate/post-baccalaureate students who request enrollment in 17 or more credit hours in any fall or spring semester must obtain special approval from their college student academic services office.

For classified graduate students, registering for 16 credit hours is considered a maximum course load for a Fall or Spring semester and may be exceeded only with the approval of the graduate chair and the Graduate Division.

Summer courses are accelerated and often meet every day. For both undergraduates and graduates, we recommend enrollment in no more than 8 credits per six-week session.

Students may not register for courses in an Outreach College Fall Extension, Spring Extension term, Summer Session or Summer Extension terms for credit or audit, in excess of the maximum registration allowed for the semester by the college or school in which they are enrolled unless given permission for an overload by the college or school.

Change of Grading Options

The deadline to change grading options (A-F, CR/NC, Audit) for a course is the same date as the deadline to add the course. Find the last day to add a course deadline by viewing the course Academic Calendar.

Course Registration & Payment Confirmation

Before the first day of class or after any add/drops you process on MyUH, confirm your enrollment in your course(s). Verify that your payment has been processed, and check for any course schedule or instructor changes.

For important information on your tuition payment, view the Payment Information page.

A receipt will not be mailed to you.

Print your schedule on MyUH by selecting "Review My Class Schedule." Class location(s) and instructor name(s) are provided on this schedule. Call (808) 956-7221 if you cannot view your registration record.

Drop/Withdrawal Policy

The student is responsible for reviewing the course Academic Calendar and meeting all deadlines for withdrawal and refund.

The student is responsible for course withdrawal(s). Not attending, discontinuing participation without officially withdrawing, stopping payment, or a bounced check may result in your receiving an "F" or "NC" grade.

Financial Aid students must notify the Financial Aid Services, Queen Liliʻuokalani Center for Student Services, Room 112, (808) 956-7251, when dropping or withdrawing from a course.

Dropping or Withdrawing from Courses

Before the term begins, drop unwanted courses through MyUH to avoid financial or academic penalties. Review your class schedule and student charges to confirm the drop processed correctly.

Drop, no "W" on record. Once the extension term begins, drop courses through MyUH until the "last day to drop." If you are dropping your last course in a fall or spring extension term, Outreach College Student Services must do the drop for you. Email a request to ochelp@hawaii.edu from your hawaii.edu email. Review your class schedule and student charges to confirm the drop processed correctly.

Withdrawal, "W" on record. To withdraw from a Fall or Spring Extension term between the "last day to drop" and the "last day to withdraw" contact Outreach College Student Services at (808) 956-7221 or send an email to ochelp@hawaii.edu from your hawaii.edu email. Instructions will be given to you. You may be required to obtain the instructor's written approval. Some colleges also require the academic services dean's approval.

In the Summer you may drop classes using MyUH until the "last day to withdraw."

After the "last day to withdraw." No withdrawals (partial or complete) are permitted, except in unusual and extenuating circumstances beyond a student's control. Contact your School or College Student Academic Services department for appeal instructions. All Unclassified undergraduate students and Outreach Only students need to submit a written statement, supporting documents (e.g., military orders, doctor's statement, etc.), and instructor's written approval to Outreach College.
