The University of Hawaiʻi is committed to a barrier-free campus and provides accommodations to ensure students with disabilities equal access to education. We agree to make academic adjustments to ensure non-discrimination of students with disabilities. This commitment is in accordance with applicable state and federal laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
Students taking an online or distance learning course should self-identify to the home campus Disability Service Office and complete the intake process before receiving reasonable accommodations. The home campus is the campus awarding the degree.
Students taking an online or distance learning course from another UH campus should self-identify to the host campus Disability Service Office and complete the intake process before receiving reasonable accommodations. The host campus is the campus offering the course.
If the student completed the intake process at the home campus, the student may contact the home campus Disability Service office and give permission, allowing the home campus Disability Service office to share confidential disability and accommodation information, with the host campus Disability Service office.
To ensure the prompt and effective provision of accommodations, students should contact the Disability Services Office(s) as early as possible.

UH campus libraries provide various services to distance learning students. These services include access to online resources, course reserves, and instruction. Students must login with their UH Username and Password. Once authenticated, students will have access to the library's electronic resources and databases. Students who are enrolled at another UH campus should contact that host library for online resources, as some have restricted access.
For online and distance learning classes, the instructor decides if their exams(s) are proctored. Students taking online courses are not expected to have any in-person requirements, either on-campus or in any other location, and exam(s) are usually online using Laulima. However, students taking an ITV course may have exam(s) taken during the class session, online using Laulima, and/or proctored at a UH Test Center. Students taking an online and distance learning class should check with the instructor for any special requirements.
Non-UH Student Proctoring Services
Students enrolled in an online or distance learning course with another institution, who are interested in completing an exam at one of the University of Hawaii campuses, should contact a nearby UH Test Center. Cost for proctoring services is $25 per hour and any fraction thereof.
System-wide tutoring is available through the Online Learning Academy (math, science or English only) or Tutor.com (community college students only). UH West Oʻahu also provides online peer tutoring through the Noʻeau Center for students taking UH West Oʻahu courses.
