The 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available online at www.fafsa.gov .

* Important information regarding the Summer Sessions - Financial aid for the summer is only available for those who received the federal Pell Grant during the Fall 2013 and/or Spring 2014 semesters and did not utilize their full aid year eligibility.  No other financial aid, including federal student loans are available for the summer sessions. In order to determine whether or not you have any remaining Pell eligibility, contact the Financial Aid Office at (808) 689-2900 or email uhwo.finaid@hawaii.edu.

Financial aid awarded through UHWO is based on 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. The application for UHWO Scholarships is usually available in late January and announced via email to your UH email account. The priority deadline is March 1st of each year.
