Accepted Students

Welcome to the UH West Oʻahu ʻohana! We know you’re excited to begin your one-of-a-kind college experience as a Pueo and we are here to help you get started. If you’re not yet familiar with what we have to offer, get to know our campus, academic programs, and student experience opportunities. Otherwise, follow the steps outlined below and let us know if you have any questions.

1. Create Your MyUH Account

Your personal online UH student account, MyUH, gives you access to a variety of online services. All students enrolled at a UH campus will need a MyUH account to: Register for classes; Pay tuition; Track financial aid status; Access University email; View grades; Be notified of important campus alerts.

2. Submit Your Intent to Enroll

Submitting your online Intent to Enroll form confirms that you plan to attend the university. It also allows you to register for classes early as well as access advising, which is essential in helping you to become a more successful student.

Note: Submit your online Intent to Enroll form only if you have received an acceptance letter from the Office of Admissions.

Submit Your Intent to Enroll

Students admitted through the Auto Admit process do not have to submit an Intent to Enroll form. Once admitted, the student’s home campus will automatically be updated to UH West Oʻahu.

Distance Education Students Only

In submitting the Intent to Enroll form, all Distance Education students agree to the computer requirements and understand that online courses are offered on a rotating basis. Students must have timely access to a computer and have an internet connection to participate in chat sessions and complete required assignments.

Program courses are offered on a rotating basis. If students choose not to register for a certain course at the time it is offered, it may affect their eligibility to register for courses offered in subsequent semesters. Ultimately, this may delay the completion of their program requirements and graduation. Prerequisite courses are not offered every semester, so students are strongly encouraged to contact their faculty advisor or academic advisor regularly.

3. Apply for Financial Aid & Scholarships

Students can receive financial assistance in the form of grants, scholarships, loans or student employment. Most forms of student aid require the submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA not only determines your eligibility for federal aid, but may also qualify you for State and institutional aid. Certain funds are limited, so applicants are strongly encouraged to apply early. Funds are usually disbursed to your student account no sooner than 10 days prior to the first day of school.

4. Math and English Course Placement

UH West Oʻahu has implemented a new provisional auto-placement policy for ENG 100T, Math 100 and Math 103M/L. No placement test is needed to enroll in these courses. Placement tests may be taken to test out of these auto-placed classes and into higher level English and Math courses.
