Students will check in at the Check-In Tent on Wednesday, August 22. At this time, students will receive their name tag and packet. Check-in is located at Aloha Tower Marketplace (1 Aloha Tower Drive, Honolulu, HI 96813).

All new, undergraduate students are charged the fall new student orientation of $120. This amount is charged to students' accounts in July. New freshmen, transfer and visiting international students are required to attend new student orientation.

Family members/guests are welcome to attend fall new student orientation alongside their student; however, it is not required. One (1) guest can attend free of charge; additional guests will be assessed a $30.00 fee. 

If you are a family member/guest, we encourage you to get familiar with the family fall schedule to determine what sessions you may want to attend. The most popular topics for family members and guests have historically been sessions related to financial resources and campus safety.
