Office of Student Academic Services (OSAS)

Academic Advising & Student Support

E komo mai! OSAS provides academic advising to all undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students, as well as all students who wish to become a teacher.

Please be advised, due to the global outbreak of COVID-19, that our office will remain committed to serving you while keeping in mind the health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty.  We have temporarily shifted to virtual Express Advising and will be offering scheduled telephone, Zoom and in-person appointments but this is subject to change depending on COVID-19ʻs status.  You may contact our office by email at osas@hawaii.edu.  We will continue to monitor the situation and ask that you also keep abreast of the current status by visiting the COVID-19 UH updates page.
