The University of Hawaiʻi schools and colleges offer a large range of academic advising services. Students are encouraged to contact their specific school or college, from which they expect to earn their degree, to find out the specific advising services that are available to them. Or you can contact the Education Center in your area for distance learning assistance.
Booklist information is available three weeks before classes begin at the host campus bookstore website.
Books may be purchased through the host campus bookstore by one of the following options:
Return books will be sent back to the appropriate home campus bookstore for refund. Normal refund policies, found on the home campus website will apply.
Information Technology Services (ITS) provides the University of Hawaiʻi community with a single, efficient resource for information regarding computer labs on campus, UH Email information, connecting to the Internet, computer software and hardware recommendations and network status. Students seeking assistance may go to the ITS Student website or contact the ITS Help Desk.
Students receiving financial aid should contact their home campus financial aid office before registering for a distance learning class offered by another campus. Additional approval and requirements may be necessary for courses offered by another campus.
Students may contact the nearest Outreach Librarian for library assistance. To access all electronic databases, you will need your UH identification card number. Your UH student ID number is located under the "My Account" tab on your MyUH Portal account, or on your student ID card.
Review the Degree Programs and/or Course Listing to select the offerings that best suit your needs. Registering for a distance learning class is similar to registering for a face-to-face class. To register at multiple UH campuses, login to the MyUH Portal.
The instructor determines how exams are handled. Exams are either taken in-class or online for ITV courses. Exams for cable and online courses are completed online using Laulima. However, some instructors may require students to take their exams at a nearby UH Test Center. Students should always check with their instructor or course syllabus for test-taking instructions.
Online tutoring is provided on most UH campuses. If you are taking a course from another campus and your home campus does not provide online tutoring, you may want to contact the host campus (campus offering the course) to see if this service is available to you.
