Delinquent Financial Obligation
All students are expected to meet their financial obligations when due within the University system. These obligations include, but not limited to, student loan payments, payment for tuition and fees, library fines, restitution for damaged items borrowed from the University and service charges for dishonored checks. Students who fail to remit payments when due will be subject to the rules and regulations governing delinquent obligations adopted by the University of Hawai‘i. Obligations incurred at other campuses within the University of Hawai‘i system will also affect a student’s standing at the University of Hawai‘i - West O‘ahu.

1. Denial of further registration;
2. Revocation of all rights and privileges which were conferred by registration or enrollment;
3. Denial of transcripts, diplomas, and other entitlements;
