To be awarded a diploma from the College, you must submit an Application for Graduation.

A non-refundable $15 fee is required in order to participate in the Commencement Ceremony. This fee will also entitle you to receive one diploma written in English, one diploma written in ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i, and a diploma cover.

The Application will be available in the 8th week of school until the deadline.  The deadline to submit the Application for Graduation is the Last Day of Instruction for the semester you are graduating. Upon submitting the Application for Graduation, the fee will be reflected in your MyUH account.

If you graduated (conferred degree) in Fall 2019, you do not need to complete this application because you will be sent the Commencement Ceremony RSVP email by March 1st. 

You do NOT receive your diplomas on Commencement Ceremony night. You will receive your diploma/certificates in the mail from Admissions and Records in 16 weeks.
