Complete Withdrawal

Once classes begin, a student can withdraw from his/her last or only class via STAR until the Last Day to Drop a Class Online with a "W". Please see the Academic Calendar for the appropriate corresponding date. After the Last Day to Drop a Class Online with a "W", students must obtain a Complete Withdrawal form from the Office of the Registrar or download from the Office of the Registrar forms and follow official procedures. Please be sure to review the Tuition and Fee Refunds schedule to determine the financial implications of doing a complete withdrawal. If you have a financial obligation on your account which is preventing you from dropping your UH Hilo course, please contact the Office of the Registrar for assistance.

For students who completely withdraw by the last day to withdraw without a "W" the courses will not be reflected on their transcript. Students who completely withdraw after the above deadline will receive a “W” for each of the courses in progress at the time of withdrawal. Tuition and fees will be assessed according to the UH system policy.

Students may completely withdraw through the last day of instruction.

A student who completely withdraws and wishes to return for any subsequent semester may be required to apply for re-admission. Students may be required to fulfill the requirements in force upon return to UH Hilo. With exceptions of the Catalog Choice and Retroactivity Policy.

Be advised, dropping below 12 credit hours may jeopardize your financial aid, VA educational benefits, and immigration status. Contact the appropriate offices prior to making any registration changes.
