First Year Students: Kuleana Checklist

Kuleana Checklist Summer 2022

Welcome to the HPU ‘Ohana! We've simplified next steps here to ensure you are ready for Orientation.

In Case You Missed It!

Make sure you're on the right track for a smooth transition to HPU! Kuleana means responsibility in Hawaiian. It's also one of our values. Follow your Kuleana Checklists below.

 1. Submit a Pre-Registration Form

If you submitted your enrollment deposit months, or even weeks ago, you have likely already completed this step. Great - one less thing to do! You are now likely registered for at least some of your Fall 2022 courses, and may already be in communication with your academic advisor.

And if you have only submitted your enrollment deposit in the past two weeks, you likely have not yet received your pre-registration form. No stress! It is coming, and we would ask that you submit the form no later than Sunday, May 22nd.

If you haven't completed the form, lick the button above and submit the HPU Course Pre-Registration Form. Then your advisor can start working on your class schedule and contact you.

Please contact Academic Advising with any questions regarding the Pre-Registration Form.

Not Sure Where to Submit Official Transcripts, Dual Credits, and Other EXAM Scores?

Request official high school or college transcripts from your institution and arrange to have them sent to HPU directly. Unfortunately, we cannot accept transcripts that are sent to HPU by students and parents.

Have your school send your transcripts to:

Office of Admissions

Mailing Address:
Hawaii Pacific University

All other official exam scores such as SAT, ACT, IELTS, TOEFL, AP, IB, etc. should also be sent to the Office of Admissions soon as possible.

3. Learn More about FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a federal law designed to protect the confidentiality of student records that an institution maintains.

How does FERPA affect you and your family?

As an HPU student, only you have access to your education records and student account. Under the FERPA law, HPU cannot disclose personally identifiable information from a student's education records to a third party (including a student's parents) without the student's prior written authorization.

If you would like your parents or guardians to have access to your student information/account, please fill out and sign an Authorization to Release Education Records form, and email it to at your earliest convenience.
