Commencement Information for Lei Vendors

UH Manoa understands the importance and significance of the use of the lei for graduates during the commencement ceremonies.  However, all lei vendors must be approved prior to selling on campus.  If a vendor is not registered and approved for the event, it is considered unlawful business on University of Hawaii property.  To register as a commencement vendor, please follow the procedures below:

  1. Obtain a GE License  - http://tax.hawaii.gov/geninfo/get/
  2. Contact the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa commencement office at 956-GRAD or graduate@hawaii.edu to get on the lei vendor mailing list.
  3. Lei vendor applications are mailed in October (Fall ceremony) and March (Spring ceremony).
  4. Apply to be a lei vendor each semester. A lottery is held for 20 vendors to sell lei, balloons or bouquets on the day of the graduation ceremonies.  
Unfortunately, all 20 vendor spaces have been claimed, so there are no additional spaces left for the commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 13.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Chief Randall West, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Department of Public Safety
