Late Registration

The late registration period for semester-long courses each semester begins on Monday and ends on Friday at 11:59 P.M. of the first week of instruction. For courses that meet on Saturday and Sunday, late registration is accepted on the following Monday at the Admissions and Records Office.

As the entire UH System uses Banner to register students and as we all have the same late registration period, access to registration services is disabled early Saturday morning by Banner Central.

To accommodate student and instructor requests for exceptions to the official late registration period, the College has adopted the following late registration procedure:

  1. the official i.e. Banner late registration period is maintained at 1 week;
  2. an unofficial i.e. Leeward late registration “window” is created and lasts until the end of the third week of the semester.
    *Students are required to get the instructor's approval via the Late Registration Card-available from A&R beginning the second week of instruction.
    *Instructors must sign and date the Card and input Capacity override approval for a closed class via MyUH Services if necessary-not through Laulima. Registration into the course is done at the Admissions and Records Office windows by the student no later than 3:00 P.M. on Friday of the third week of instruction . In addition to any tuition and fees, A&R will charge the $5 change of registration fee;
  3. beginning with the fourth week of the semester, NO appeals will be accepted-with or without instructor approval.

Instructors can assist students in avoiding registration problems by checking their MyUH class rosters often--especially during the first three weeks of the semester when dropping and adding classes is occurring.

Reminder: Laulima is the University of Hawaii’s online Collaboration and Learning Environment for use in online and web‐enhanced (hybrid) classes. Laulima provides instructors and students with accessibility to course content and communication tools for interaction between the instructor and students within the course.

Adding or dropping a student in Laulima does not affect the official student record. The student is required to add or drop a course through MyUH Services using the STAR GPS Registration platform.
