IMPORTANT FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION
The 2013-2014 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available online at www.fafsa.gov.
- Make sure to indicate UH West O'ahu’s FAFSA school code is 014315.
- The priority deadline to submit the FAFSA for fall is April 1st.
- Most schools, including UH West O'ahu, have an established priority deadline. Meeting the priority deadline, allows the student the best opportunity to be considered for the most aid possible, as some financial aid programs have limited funding. If the priority deadline is missed, the student may still apply for financial aid and the award offer will be subject to available funds.
The 2012-2013 FAFSA is still available. If financial aid is needed for the current semester, the student should complete this application as soon as possible at www.fafsa.gov.
Financial aid awarded through UHWO is based a student's full-time enrollment at the University. If this is not the case, students must inform the Financial Aid Office in writing or submit the Concurrent Enrollment Request Form if the student will be concurrently enrolled at UHWO and another UH System campus. Half-time enrollment at UHWO is required to remain eligible for most financial aid including scholarships.
Scholarship opportunities are available through UH West O'ahu, the UH System and other external resources. To view the latest scholarships and obtain additional information, visit the Scholarship page or log on to STAR. The application for UHWO Scholarships is usually available in late March or early April of each year.
