Web Registration Guide—MyUH

How to Register on MyUH

  1. If you are not a current student or if you will be graduating before the term begins, you need to submit a UHM Outreach College credit application form, see Application Information. Allow at least 5 working days for the processing of your application. In the summer we often receive several hundred applications a day. Anticipate delays during peak application periods. You will receive a notification of acceptance and your assigned UH Number by email or mail.

  2. Once admitted, it is mandatory to create a UH username and email account. You need your UH username to register, view your grades, use Laulima, and keep your contact information up to date. Important information from University administrators and instructors will be sent to your UH email address, therefore, check your email regularly. Email sent to your UH email is considered an official channel of communication by the University. Go to Managing Your UH Username or if you need assistance, contact the ITS Help Desk at (808) 956-8883 or email

  3. Complete the MyUH student tutorial before entering the system for the first time.

  4. Select your course(s) from the updated schedule of courses (Class Availability) website. Make note of the course reference number(s) (CRN) to be used for registration.

    • Courses in the Fall Extension terms have 4-digit CRNs beginning with the number 1.

    • Courses in the Spring Extension terms have 4-digit CRNs beginning with the number 3.

    • Courses in Summer Session 1 & 2 have 5-digit CRNs beginning with the number 9.

    • Courses in the Summer Extension terms have 4-digit CRNs beginning with the number 4.

    Look at the start and end dates of your selected courses; numerous courses do not begin on the first day of the term.

    Some of our courses are held off campus or on neighbor islands. Check the location of the courses before you register.

    Students registering for courses numbered 500+ are required to have a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university or its equivalent from a recognized foreign institution of higher learning.

  5. If your course(s) require department or instructor approval, contact the appropriate person or office prior to adding the course(s). See restriction notations on the schedule of courses. The academic department or instructor will enter the approval code that allows you to register for the course.

  6. Log onto MyUH. Under the "Home" tab click on "Add/Drop Courses."

  7. Select "Fall Extension," "Spring Extension," "Summer" or "Summer Extension" term by clicking on the Term drop-down box.

    This is a very important step. If you select the incorrect term option, you will not be able to register for UHM Outreach College course(s). If you select the wrong term, click on the "Select Term" link at the bottom of the page to correct the error.

  8. Add each course by selecting the "University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa" as the Institution. Enter the 4-digit or 5-digit CRN and click "Submit Changes."

  9. Read carefully and look for registration errors. See a description of the error in the "Status" column. You will not be able to register for the course until you resolve the problem. If you don't have any restrictions, error messages, or holds, you can add another course, drop a course, or complete the registration session. For a list of restrictions, error messages, types of approval codes, and contacts, view the approval code/error messages table. When you are finished adding and or dropping your courses, check your schedule and your student account balance for errors.

  10. Scroll to the bottom of the registration page and select "View My Charges/Make A Payment." Submit payment to finalize the registration process. Visit the Outreach College web pages Tuition & Fees or Payment Information for detailed information.

  11. Before the term begins and after any changes to your registration, check your schedule of courses and your tuition or payment information for errors.

    To avoid financial obligation holds, or academic penalties be sure to drop unwanted courses during the 100% refund period.

    Print your schedule; note that it includes your classroom location and instructor’s name.

Cancelled Classes

Course cancellation decisions are made about a week before the course begins. Verify updated class information (status of classes, including cancellations) by checking your schedule "Review My Class Schedule" on MyUH.

If your class is cancelled, you may select an alternate course. Otherwise, a 100% tuition refund is issued in 4–6 weeks.

Maximum Credits

Undergraduate unclassified students who request enrollment in 20 or more credit hours and graduate/post-baccalaureate students who request enrollment in 17 or more credit hours in any fall or spring semester must obtain special approval from their college student academic services office.

For graduate students 16 credit hours are considered a maximum course load for a fall or spring semester and may be exceeded only with the approval of the graduate chair and the Graduate Division.

Summer courses are accelerated and often meet every day. For both undergraduates and graduates, we recommend enrollment in no more than 8 credits per six-week session.

Students may not register for courses in an Outreach College fall or spring extension term, for credit or audit, in excess of the maximum registration allowed for the semester by the college or school in which they are enrolled unless given permission for an overload by the college or school.

Change of Grading Options

The deadline to change grading options (A-F, CR/NC, Audit) for a course is the same date as the deadline to add the course. Find the last day to add a course deadline by viewing the course Academic Calendar.
