Financial Liability Policy

Enrollment at the University of Hawaiʻi signifies consent to, and acceptance of, all policies and procedures governing enrollment, including financial liability. Students who fail to remit payment when due, agree to pay the University of Hawaiʻi all reasonable costs for collection, including collection agency, attorney's, and court fees.

Remember: If we do not receive your payment, a financial obligation "hold" may be placed on your student record. If you no longer wish to be registered, please drop the course(s) before the end of the 100% refund period to avoid financial or academic penalties

Financial Support

Attention: Students Receiving Pell Grants: The US Department of Education has re-instated Year-Round Pell Grants. Year-Round Pell Grants allow students to receive additional Pell Grant beginning Summer 2018. Year-round Pell allows students to receive up to 150 percent of a regular grant award over the course of the academic year so that they can continue taking classes in the summer and finish their degrees faster than they would otherwise. Students must still meet all the eligibility requirements. For more information contact the Financial Aid Office.

Financial Aid for Current UH Hilo Students

Current UH Hilo students who received financial aid in the spring semester may be considered for financial aid from UH Hilo in the summer. Students wishing to attend summer session using financial aid must complete a summer financial aid application. Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.

Financial Aid for Summer Sessions Visiting Students

Financial Aid for Visiting Summer Session Students is handled by the student's home institution. Contact the Financial Aid Office at your university or college before registering for classes at UH Hilo.
