University of Hawaii West Oahu Seal


Campus Policy: Registration, Tuition and Fees

Students are responsible for all applicable tuition and fees incurred for all registration activities (e.g., add/drop) whether or not classes were attended. Students are advised to officially withdraw from classes they do not plan to attend during the appropriate withdrawal and/or refund periods. Failure to withdraw will result in a financial obligation to the University of Hawai‘i and a possible failing grade for the class in question.

All students whose tuition is paid by a third party sponsoring agency (e.g., MyCAA, GoArmy, Vocational Rehabilitation, U.S. Armed Forces Branch, Alu Like, etc.) should submit their letters of financial guarantee, purchase orders or authorization letters from their sponsors to the UH West O‘ahu Cashier’s Office located at the Campus Center, C-141.

Generally, payment is due prior to the semester for which charges are incurred, and the Cashier’s Office notifies students via email of the final payment dates as well as information on payment plans. Students who are not able to make this deadline must pay, with their own funds, the tuition and fees incurred by the payment deadline. When the sponsor sends payment for the tuition and fees, the University Cashier’s Office will process a refund. If the third party sponsoring agency does not make payment for your tuition for any reason after being billed by the University, you will be responsible for paying any unpaid balances on your student account. Failure to do so will result in sanctions for outstanding financial obligations being imposed on your student account. For more information, students may contact the Cashier’s Office at 808-689-2890 or by email at
