NEW PILOT PROGRAM – 15 Week semester
During the 2012-13 academic year, the University will be piloting a project for the UH System which will shorten the semester by one week. Instead of a 16-week semester, the fall 2012 and spring 2013 semesters will be 15-weeks. Additional class time has been added to account for the shortening of the semester. Please be sure to review the class times when registering for classes.
Students who concurrently enroll at another UH campus are advised that all other UH campuses will remain at 16-weeks of instruction. Additionally, all AS and MSL classes offered by UH West O‘ahu through the ROTC Program at UH Mānoa will be held for 16-weeks. Please be sure to review the dates of instruction when registering for classes.
SCHEDULE OF CLASSES
The spring 2013 schedule of classes will be available Monday, October 29 and can be viewed on MyUH. Prior to the first day of registration, students are advised to view the schedule of classes again in case changes have been made.
Course prerequisite and co-requisite information may be found in the course description section of the General Catalog. Note: The prerequisite for all writing intensive (WI) classes is completion or concurrent enrollment in ENG 200.
AEROSPACE STUDIES (AS) AND MILITARY SCIENCE AND LEADERSHIP (MSL) CLASSES
Eligible students who are interested in registering for AS or MSL classes through UH Mānoa’s ROTC program should complete and submit the AS and MSL Course Registration Form to the Office of the Registrar, located at the Campus Center, C-141, if the class is not listed on the current UH West O‘ahu schedule of classes. All AS and MSL classes are held at UH Mānoa.
UH West O‘ahu offers its distance education classes in three modalities, Interactive Television (ITV), online using the Laulima course delivery program, and in a hybrid format.
ITV classes provide learning at a specific time and place, allowing students to take a class from one location while the instructor teaches from another. Both the instructor and student can see and hear each other, simulating a face-to-face class environment. ITV courses are delivered in real time; therefore students must attend class in-person at their respective University or Education Center on the neighbor islands. Some ITV classes may include online components to enhance the class experience. For these classes, students must have timely access to a computer and the Internet.
Laulima is a course management and collaboration system used by the University of Hawai‘i where students use chat rooms, a bulletin board, calendar, and email to simulate an online classroom environment. Students may access their online class either through MyUH or directly through Laulima approximately one week before the semester begins. For more information about Laulima and computer requirements, visit the online student tutorials.
Hybrid classes are taught online and include an in-person classroom component. Students will meet on designated days/times in a classroom environment with the instructor and other students. For the online portion of the class, students must have timely access to a computer and the Internet. For additional information about hybrid classes, interested students may contact the instructor.
The registration waitlist is an electronic list of students waiting to register for a class that has reached its maximum enrollment. If a seat in the class becomes available, the first student on the registration waitlist for that class will be notified through their UH email account and informed how long the seat will be held for them to register. While the waitlist feature is available, instructors will not be allowed to provide overrides for students to get into a closed class. The waitlist feature will be turned off beginning January 7, 2013 (first day of instruction for spring 2013) and instructors will be allowed to provides overrides at that time. For more information, visit Registration Waitlist FAQs.
Waitlist notification for spring 2013
Nov 5 – January 5
24 hours to register for a waitlist class after being notified
PREPARING FOR REGISTRATION
Upon acceptance to UH West O‘ahu, all classified students are assigned to a faculty advisor based on their major/concentration. Faculty advisors are a valuable resource for students to discuss academic goals, assist with class scheduling, or prepare for graduate programs and career and professional development. All students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisor on a regular basis. A student’s assigned faculty advisor can be viewed in the STAR Degree Check, under the academic standing tab through MyUH.
Student Services Academic Advisors
In addition to faculty advisors, students may meet with a student services advisor for questions pertaining to general education and graduation requirements, changes to major/concentration, academic probation, or registration holds. To make an appointment with a student services advisor, visit the Academic Advising Office at the Campus Center, C-236, or call 689-2689. Neighbor island students may contact their office toll-free at (866) 299-8656 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the first week of spring 2013 preregistration, Nov 5-9, academic advisors will be available for brief walk-in advising sessions during the following days/times:
- Monday, November 5, 8:30am – 3:30pm
- Tuesday, November 6 – Campus Closed, Election Day
- Wednesday, November 7, 8:30am – 4:30pm
- Thursday, November 8, 8:30am – 3:30pm
- Friday, November 9, 8:30am – 12:00pm
Before registration begins, students are advised to check their registration status on MyUH to ensure there are no holds that will prevent their eligibility to register, including but not limited to, financial obligations, required admission forms, or medical clearances (e.g., TB and MMR). Students must clear all obligations in order to register. International students and those on academic probation must see a student services academic advisor to register; online registration will not be allowed. Students on the neighbor islands may contact the Academic Advising Office toll-free at (866) 299-8656 or by email at email@example.com.
CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT FOR FINANCIAL AID STUDENTS
Financial aid awards are based on a student’s enrollment at UH West O‘ahu. Financial aid recipients who concurrently enroll at another UH campus (e.g., Leeward Community College, UH Mānoa, etc.) during the fall or spring semester, may be able to count those courses in the financial aid calculation. To be considered, students must complete and submit the Concurrent Enrollment Form to the Financial Aid Office located at the Campus Center, C-236, for processing. Students must remain enrolled in a minimum of six credits at UH West O‘ahu for the concurrent enrollment request to be considered and the courses taken from another UH campus must be applicable to the degree being pursued at UH West O‘ahu. Students who make changes to their enrollment after their financial aid has been awarded should notify the Financial Aid Office at 689-2689 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VETERANS AFFAIRS BENEFITS
All eligible students who would like to be certified for Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits are required to submit the Veteran Student Enrollment Information Form to the Office of the Registrar to ensure that the registered classes are applicable to the student’s major/concentration requirements. Students who need to make a change to their registration (e.g., add/drop) or elect to change their major/concentration after their classes were certified for the semester must submit the Veteran Student Change in Enrollment Form to the Office of the Registrar.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT INFORMATION
International students on F-1 and J-1 student visas must be enrolled as full-time students each semester (summer excluded). Full-time enrollment for undergraduate international students is defined as a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester. All international students are required to meet with Janice Takaki, International Student Services Advisor, every semester to register. Online registration is not allowed. Visit the Academic Advising Office located at the Campus Center, C-236, or call 689-2689 to make an appointment.
Distance Education Class Restrictions
The Department of Homeland Security restricts international students in the U.S. from enrolling in some distance learning programs. The student visa status requires a student’s physical presence on campus; therefore enrollment in distance education classes is restricted. Students may count only one three-credit distance education class per semester as part of their full-time course load.
Concurrent Enrollment for International Students
Students interested in enrolling concurrently at another campus in the UH system or post-secondary institution are required to get approval from the UH West O‘ahu international student services advisor prior to registering for non-UH West O‘ahu classes.
Health Insurance Requirement
UH policy stipulates that all international students must obtain adequate health insurance as a condition of enrollment. Continuing students must provide documentation for health insurance covering the entire duration of the spring 2013 and submit the F-1 Student Acknowledgement of Health Insurance Form by December 1, 2012 to the Office of the Registrar. Newly accepted international students will have a health insurance hold placed on their registration records and will not be allowed to register until sufficient documentation is provided.
Students who wish to audit a class must complete the Audit Request Form. The completed form must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar by the last day of late registration for the term in which the class is being offered. Students and instructors may not amend the audit grade mode to receive credit for a class once the audit grade mode is designated. More information about auditing a class is available in the General Catalog.
