If you do not sign up for direct deposit of your refund, a check, payable to the student, will be mailed to your mailing address on file in the student information system. Please verify and keep your addresses current as all refund checks will be mailed in the following priority :

1. Mailing Address
2. Permanent Address (If Mailing Address is blank)

Mailing address corrections and updates can be made online through MyUH Online Services or in-person at any campus Records Office. Permanent address changes can only be made in-person.

If you paid by credit card, refunds may be credited to the credit card that was used for payment.

Other Important Refund Information

Refund checks are payable only to the student.

If you have a financial hold with the University of Hawaii, your refund may be delayed as it will not be processed until the unpaid obligation is cleared. Any refund will first be applied to unpaid charges owed to the University.
