This is the 2019-2020 UH Hilo catalog, previous year catalogs can be viewed on the Back Issues page.
Once classes begin, a student can withdraw from his/her last or only class via MyUH 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.
For students who completely withdraw before the end of the third week of instruction, the courses will not be reflected on their transcript. Students who completely withdraw after the third week of instruction 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 submit an admissions application for re-admission. Students who return to UH Hilo after a single semester break (excluding summer) will be eligible to graduate under the requirements in force when they first entered UH Hilo or any campus of the UH System. Students who stop out for more than one semester will be required to fulfill the requirements in force when they return to UH Hilo.
Students may petition the Dean of their College for an approved leave of absence for unusual circumstances beyond the student’s control; an approved leave of absence will allow a student to use the catalog in force when s/he entered UH Hilo or another UH System campus with a break of more than one semester.
A student who completely withdrawals without an approved Leave of Absence must reapply for admissions. The student may be required to fulfill the requirements in force upon return to UH Hilo.
