PREPARE YOUR SCHEDULE
manoa.hawaii.edu/star
Deadline: July 29

Every Warrior’s journey has a path. Get an early start on creating your class schedule through ACE or STAR. Visit manoa.hawaii.edu/star to begin creating your class schedule.
  • ACE: Think freshman interest groups - these are grouped classes based on your major and will be experienced alongside 15 other students. This is a great way to meet new friends, too!
  • STAR: Think a la carte - these are non-grouped classes based on your major.
We encourage you to meet with an academic advisor. Each College and School provides advising services. The cover letter to your acceptance packet denotes the College or School that you are admitted. Contact information for your academic advisor is provided here, listed by College or School. Undecided on a major? You will meet with an advisor in the Mānoa Advising Center.
Placement Tests
manoa.hawaii.edu/records/register/place_exams
Deadline: Consult with advisor

Some Warriors may have additional tests that they must complete prior to beginning their journey. You may contact your academic advisor if required to take a placement test. Both MyUH portal and STAR will prompt students if a placement exam is required.
Placement tests are available in:
  • Math (available online)
  • Chemistry (available online)
  • Languages
SAT College Code: 4867
ACT College Code: 0902

GETTING ORIENTED
We offer a variety of options to help you transition into the Rainbow Warrior Way. More information about these programs will be communicated through your MyUH email account.
  • One-Day Freshman/Transfer Orientation Program: Primarily for students who live on the island of Oʻahu, although the invite is open to all who will be on island the day of the event.
  • Week Of Welcome (WOW): Primarily for students who are out-of-state, neighbor island, and international; WOW coincides with your residence hall check-in. Get ready to move-in and enjoy a week of activities to get you orientated.
  • Unable to attend either? If you are living in the residence halls, they will have orientation type activities for you to participate in as well.
