UH-Maui College Counseling Directory

Students are assigned to an academic counselor based on their major

Most students meet with their counselor at least once or twice a semester. Examples of things you can discuss with academic counselors are (but not limited to): educational and career goals, program and course selection, transfer needs, personal concerns, and career counseling. Academic counselors are available to meet online via Zoom or phone during our regular business hours.
