    Academic Advising
    Students at the Hawaii campus have access to academic advising and counseling at the main campus in Mililani, Hickam AFB, Tripler Army Medical Center, Pearl Harbor, Schofield Barracks, Camp Smith, and Kaneohe MCBH. Academic advisors at the military bases generally work by appointment; however they do accept walk-ins. Academic advisors are available for walk-ins at our main campus location in Mililani. New students not assigned to a military base may wish to use the walk-in option or call to make an appointment at the main campus in Hawaii. New students will be assigned an academic advisor following the initial session.

    New students seeking a preliminary degree plan should bring to the appointment copies of transcripts, CLEP, AARTS, DD Form 214 or DD Form 295, and certificates of all employer-based training they want to be evaluated for credit.

    Make an appointment to have your credits evaluated and to determine the number of hours needed to complete your associate, bachelor’s, or master’s.
