Online Services for 'Ohana
ʻOhana is Hawaiian for "extended family" and is very inclusive. At the University of Hawaii, ʻOhana refers to the group of individuals consisting of alumni, former faculty or staff, former University department affiliates, and all others who were assigned a UH Username but no longer have an active affiliation with the University. The initial services available for ʻOhana include:
- Password Administration -- Password administration includes management of your secret questions and answer. You can fall back on these if they are wisely chosen to allow you to recover from losing/forgetting your password.
- Email Services -- You may keep your UH email account, even after your active association with the University has ended. This also includes the continued availability of all email messages and folders stored on your UH email account, as well as POP and IMAP access.
- STAR -- The University STAR academic advising service allows most alumni to create information transcripts. Note that for official transcripts you still must contact the Registrar's Office.
- SECE (only for students who earned a degree from UH) -- The Student Employment website now lists full-time jobs, which are available to recent UH graduates.
Please note that you must renew your ʻOhana enrollment annually. You will be sent a series of email reminders in advance of the annual renewal date. Regretfully, should you not renew on time, we will be unable to reestablish your ʻOhana credentials (username and password) and associated services.
