What is the FAFSA?

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available online at studentaid.gov. Don’t forget to submit your FAFSA for next school year!

  • Make sure to indicate UH West Oʻahu’s FAFSA school code is 014315.
  • The priority deadline to submit the FAFSA for fall is March 1. The priority deadline to submit the FAFSA for spring is October 1.
  • Most schools, including UH West Oʻahu, 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.
