Opting into the Student Activity Fee

Aloha Vulcans! We are happy to announce that UH Hilo students that are Distance Learning (DL) and have not been assessed the Campus-Based Mandatory Student Fees, are able to opt-in and pay for the Student Activity Fee at Lava Landing.

The Student Activity Fee cost is $28.50 per semester. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to pro-rate this fee and you will need to pay the full fee no matter when during the semester you choose to do so. Therefore if you would like to attend SAC events, you should do so as soon as possible.

After you have paid for the Student Activity fee, you will receive a FA22UHHSAC validation that will give you access to SAC events. Lava Landing is able to take cash, check, and card payments.

If you have any questions, please contact Lava Landing at (808) 932-7365 or

Reminder: You must be a UH Hilo student that is Distance Learning (DL) and have not been assessed the Campus-Based Mandatory Student Fees to be eligible.

Mahalo for your patience!
