Refunds of Tuition and Fees

Regular Tuition and Fees

Tuition and special course fees are refunded as indicated:

  • A 100 percent refund of tuition for complete withdrawal or decrease in credits made on or before the 10th calendar day of the semester, unless otherwise stipulated by federal regulations.
  • A 50 percent refund of tuition for complete withdrawal or decrease in credits made between the 11th to the 21st calendar days of the semester, unless otherwise stipulated by federal regulations.
  • No refunds of tuition for complete withdrawal or decrease in credits from the 22nd calendar day of the semester (start of the 4th week of instruction), unless otherwise stipulated by federal regulations.

Student activity fees are only refundable before the first day of instruction, or if you completely withdraw from all UH campuses during the 100 percent period.

Penalties apply even if payment for tuition and fees has not been made at the time registration status is changed.

After students have secured all required approvals, the withdrawal or change in registration must be processed according to instructions in the online Registration Guide at www.hawaii.edu/myuh/manoa/. In no case shall a refund be made when a student fails to follow these instructions within two weeks of the date of change in registration (e.g., withdrawal, change in status, or change in tuition rate).

Refunds are made by the UH Manoa Cashier’s Office after the procedures for complete withdrawal from UH Manoa have been followed. See the “Undergraduate Education” and “Graduate Education” sections of this Catalog.

Federal regulations mandate a refund policy for all students who are receiving federal financial aid and who process a complete withdrawal before 60% of the semester has elapsed. A detailed refund policy is available in the Registration Guide.

If you paid by credit card within the past 90 days, your credit card may be credited the refund amount in the order of credit card used. For payments older than 90 days, your refund will be deposited directly into your designated eRefund account or mailed to your current mailing address on file at UH Manoa. If you paid by cash or check, your refund will be deposited directly into your designated eRefund account or mailed to your current address on file at UH Manoa. Students should verify and update their mailing address and permanent address, as all refund checks will be mailed to their address in the following priority: 1) Mailing Address, and 2) Permanent Address (if mailing address is null or expired). Mailing address corrections can be made online through MyUH, and permanent address corrections made by mailing the Student Data Change Form at manoa.hawaii.edu/records/pdf/data_change.pdf or completing it in-person at the Office of the Registrar, Queen Lili‘uokalani Center for Student Services, Room 010 (ground floor).

UH Manoa offers students the option to have refunds direct deposited into a bank account. View information on eRefunds at www.hawaii.edu/news/docs/eRefunds.pdf.
