New student orientation

Parents & ʻOhana

Welcome to our parents' guide to the admission process. As a parent, you are the best person to talk with your son or daughter about the importance of higher education in today's competitive job market.

At UH Mānoa, we realize parents and ʻohana or family of prospective and current students have questions about college life. The links on this page will direct you to important information about the admission process and the many academic opportunities, services, and resources UH Mānoa has to offer—from new student orientation to financial aid and scholarships.

Keep in mind that while we encourage parents to talk with students about their college plans and assist them with their search, students should complete the admission application on their own.

Take some time to explore the many resources we offer to our students.
