Being prepared for
the upcoming semester means checking in with your academic
advisor and taking advantage of the resources and tools available
to you via Pipeline, according to the Center for Graduate and
Adult Services. This includes Web registration, and up-to-date
information that can affect your degree plans.
The Center for Graduate and Adult Services (CGAS) can assist
both graduates and adult learners to register before needed classes
The Center recommends that students call (808) 543-8034 for an
appointment, because advisors for walk-ins are available only
on a first-come, first-served basis. Extended hours are available
on Wednesdays, from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. The Center is open
from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the other weekdays.
Remember that the last day to add a course is Friday, Feb. 1.
Other related registration information can be found on HPU’s
Web site under Registration Bulletin (one for graduate and undergraduate
Students should be aware of certain registration categories:
e.g., full-time status means a total of 9 credits (6 of which
must be in on-campus classes as opposed to online) for graduate
students and 12 credits (9 of which must be on campus) for undergraduate
Some students face specific limitations. Individuals with a Student
Visa (F-1) status can take only one online course per semester.
Failure to adhere to regulations from the Immigrations and Customs
Enforcement Office may put student status and U.S. residency
