If you are not already a continuing student in good standing and eligible to register for the upcoming fall or spring semester, you must first apply for admission by the appropriate deadline and be admitted as a classified or unclassified student. Visit Apply Now for admission information.

Qualified UH Mānoa faculty and staff who have graduated from an accredited U.S. college or university or a recognized international institution can submit the Post-Baccalaureate Unclassified Application for Qualified Faculty and Staff Form. Faculty and staff who submit this form will be considered unclassified students and will be exempt from paying the application fee. Spouses and domestic partners are not eligible to use this form.

4. Clear Holds

Certain university offices may prevent you from registering or making registration changes by placing a hold on your account. This usually occurs if you have not fulfilled certain requirements (e.g., financial obligations, health clearance, academic advising, etc.).

5. Check Your Registration Time

Employees and their spouses or domestic partners should disregard the registration date and time posted in MyUH since Faculty/Staff Tuition Waivers are valid only for classes registered for during the Late Registration Period.

Note: You must register for courses during the Late Registration Period. The late registration period for UH Mānoa is the first 10 calendar days of the semester. Consult the Academic Calendar for exact dates.

You will be responsible for all applicable tuition and fees if you register before the late registration period. No refunds will be issued.
