The best way to start your HPU journey is with our New Student Orientation program.  The spring orientation program is designed for new students who intend to enroll during the Spring 2016 semester. Spring orientation is for new undergraduate students (freshman and transfer) enrolled in the upcoming winter and spring terms.

Spring Orientation is a day of information sessions and activities to introduce you to HPU and Honolulu, HI.  You will learn about the many campus resources to help you succeed and meet students from all over the world. By participating, you will be prepared for the challenges and celebrations of university life.

New full-time spring freshman and transfer students are required to attend spring orientation. Visiting students are NOT required to attend.
