How To Register

Students outside the University of Hawaii

  1. Determine your own aptitude for advanced learning. You should be at or approaching the Intermediate-High level in reading and writing; in other words, you should be able to write a simple story using connected sentences generally understandable to any native speaker. You should also be proficient in the use of the appropriate language software for the input of Chinese or Japanese, plus the use of a Web browser to view pages encoded in Chinese or Japanese (UTF-8, Unicode).
  2. For Chinese, take the screening test.
  3. Contact the appropriate instructor or Stephen Tschudi <stephen.tschudi@hawaii.edu> for course approval.
  4. Apply for admission. You will be applying for admission to take a credit-bearing course, but not in a degree program. Please note deadlines for application.
  5. Once you are admitted, register online as instructed (the courses are credit-bearing courses in the Extension semesters).
  6. Contact Stephen Tschudi <stephen.tschudi@hawaii.edu> for instructions regarding username and password, and how to get your CD-ROM.

*NOTE: Once you have been admitted to Outreach College, you still have to register for your class. Please remember: these are FOR-CREDIT classes (even if you are just auditing) that meet totally online and are not the Evening/Weekend program courses which meet physically on campus. Here are the steps to register:

    1. Go to the UH general registration site, Banner (MyUH).
    2. For your ID, enter your UH Username. For your PIN, enter your UHUNIX password.
    3. Follow the instructions for registration. You are ADDING a class, and you will be prompted to search for the class. You may search using the CRN (Course Reference Number).This will be different depending which of the courses you are taking. Unsure? See the Course Descriptions.
    4. You can pay your tuition and fees online using a credit card.
