GENERAL INFORMATION

The financial aid programs at Hawai‘i Pacific University are designed to help students supplement their financial resources and those of their parents or spouses in financing their education. Since the responsibility for education lies first and foremost with the student and the student’s family, each is expected to contribute financially toward the educational expenses of the student according to ability. Such factors as income, assets, number of dependents, etc., are taken into consideration. The University recognizes that a family may not be able to meet all of the student’s educational expenses and has a strong commitment to awarding financial aid.
