Email communications will be sent to the student's University of Hawaii email address after the student's user account has been established.

Change of Address

Students are responsible for keeping UH Manoa's Office of the Registrar (Queen Lili'uokalani Center for Student Services 010) informed of their correct address (i.e., mailing, permanent, email, etc.). Change of address may also be completed through the MyUH Portal at myuh.hawaii.edu.

Misrepresentation

By UH Manoa policy, all applicants for admission are required to list all current and previous enrollment in any postsecondary institution on the application form. Applicants for admission who fail to inform UH Manoa of such enrollment at the time of application or who submit, or have submitted on their behalf, any required information or document that is inaccurate, incorrect, or fraudulent or that has been altered without proper authorization may be denied admission to UH Manoa.

The student or prospective student may also be referred to the Student Conduct Committee for possible disciplinary action.
