13: On-Campus Orientation

Orientation for All New Students

The orientation for all new students will begin on August 19 in the afternoon. Although it is not required, we strongly recommend that you attend this orientation. Over the course of four days, you will meet lots of new students, learn about campus and community resources, and have fun! Participating in Orientation will help you build a foundation for your academic success and social integration into the UH Hilo campus. It will help you understand what it means to be a proud member of our UH Hilo ʻohana (the Hawaiian word for “family”).

There is a $50 fee to participate in this part of the orientation and you must sign up. You can sign up online and pay for the fee before you come to Hilo, or you can sign up and pay the $50 fee when you arrive in Hilo.
