Rental and Meal Plan Payment FAQ

I have Financial Aid, but I don’t get it till school starts. Do I have to pay everything now?

Provided that you have "Sufficient Financial Aid", please send us a copy of your award letter with your 20% deposit for your Housing and Meal Plan (meal plan optional for Hale Ikena residents) to hold your space.

What does Sufficient Financial Aid mean?

Sufficient Financial Aid means that you have enough Aid (Grants, Scholarship, Loans) to cover all of your Tuition, Fees, Housing, and Meal Plan. Work Study is not considered.

What happens if I don’t have sufficient Financial Aid? How do I pay?

There are 4 options to consider.

  1. Students can calculate their balance not covered by Financial  Aid and pay the difference
  2. Students can sign up for the Installment Payment Plan.
  3. Students can use both Financial Aid and sign up for the Installment Payment Plan.
  4. Students can make the required 20% payment and pay balance by August.

Please be sure to communicate your intentions on what option you are selecting to our office. Requests must be made in writing before designated housing payment deadlines.
