To be considered for financial aid you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). On the FAFSA, you should list the University of Hawaii at Manoa, code number 001610, as one of the schools to receive your information. You must complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov
The priority deadline is February 1st of every year. The priority date is to ensure that you will be awarded financial aid and that this aid will be disbursed by the start of school. Financial Aid Services (FAS) must receive all you required documents by this date to complete your file. Your application will not be processed until your file is complete.
All financial aid awarded is based on eligibility and some aid may be based on availability of funds. Please visit the UH Financial Aid Services page for more information.
