Admission of Unclassified, Non-degree Students

This is content from the Catalog 2019–2020 back issue. Please visit the current catalog for current information.

A person who wishes to take courses at UH Hilo but does not wish, or does not qualify, to enroll in a degree program, may apply for admission as an unclassified student. An unclassified student is not a candidate for a degree or a Board of Regents-approved certificate and will not be allowed to become a candidate unless he/she meets the admission standards required of students seeking a degree. Moreover, most types of financial aid programs will not be available to unclassified students. International visa students and WUE students are not eligible for unclassified, non-degree status. Students who are on academic dismissal or suspension do not qualify under this status. Contact the Admissions Office for more information.
