Revising Your Financial Aid

UH Hilo Home > Student Affairs > Financial Aid

Enrollment for fewer credit hours than an award was based upon will result in a reduction of the financial aid award. A financial aid staff member should be consulted before dropping any courses to discuss how the change will affect the financial aid award, and/or your satisfactory progress completion rate.

Also, a change in your living situation may result in a lower cost of attendance budget and a reduced financial aid award.

A revision of your award package may be requested if family financial circumstances change. Contact the Financial Aid Office to verify your eligibility and procedures.

Withdrawing from school during the term can cause financial aid to be adjusted in accordance with the Return of Title IV Funds Policy (see below). If you are considering withdrawing, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

If financial aid funds have already been paid to you and you reduce hours or change living arrangements, you may be required to repay all or part of your financial aid award. The University will not be able to disburse any additional financial aid, process transcript requests or allow you to register until all financial aid obligations have been cleared.
