University Housing

Deferred Payments

Deferred payment will be granted only to those paying a required deposit of housing/meal plan fees and receiving enough financial aid (grants, loans, etc.) to pay for their tuition, fees, housing and meal plan. Also, included are those paying their required deposit and signing up for the University of Hawaiʻi Installment Payment plan.

To be allowed deferment of full payment, a deposit of 20% of full cost of rental and 20% of Meal Plan is required (to be applied to rental/security deposit and Meal Plan selection), along with a copy of your "Notification of Financial Assistance" (also called Award Letter) or any other document(s) (i.e., promissory note) as proof of assistance by your designated deadline. Please note that a copy of an application for financial assistance is not acceptable as proof of aid. Students will be required to submit payment for the balance that does not cover housing and meals after deduction of tuition and fees and/or sign up for the University Installment Payment Plan.

Students that do not have financial aid or do not have enough financial aid to cover all of their expenses may submit a payment of 20% of full costs of Rental and 20% of Meal Plan and sign up for the University of Hawaiʻi Installment Payment Plan. More information on how this plan works can be found the University Installment Payment Plan website.

Students taking this option must sign up for this plan by the designated deadline noted on the housing billing statement. Students that fail to do so will lose their housing space.

Please note that the student is responsible to see that all necessary documentation is submitted by the specified deadline. To ensure that you have financial assistance, please follow-up with the Financial Aid Office to verify that your paperwork has been processed.
