The majority of aid awarded by UH Maui College is federal and based on demonstrated financial need.  Eligibility requirements are determined by federal rules and include the following requirements.

The applicant must:

  • be a U.S. citizen or an eligible noncitizen (permanent resident).
  • be enrolled in a degree granting program (classified student).
  • be making satisfactory academic progress toward a degree at UH Maui College.
  • not be in default on a loan or owe a refund on a federal grant.
  • have demonstrated financial need.
  • have obtained a high school diploma or GED.
  • be registered with Selective Service, if required.

UH Maui College students will have their prior academic history at the College reviewed to determine compliance with the Financial Aid satisfactory academic progress policy.

Transfer students should request that an academic counselor review their prior records to determine advanced placement.  A review of the UH Maui College academic transcript and/or credits transferred from other institutions may impact the timeframe (semesters of eligibility) at the College.

Students who owe a repayment on financial aid funds, or are in default on an educational loan, will be unable to receive academic transcripts, register for classes in the subsequent semester, or receive further aid until the amount due is repaid in full or prescribed federal requirements have been met.

Students should be aware that the financial aid award is subject to adjustment due to legislative action, changes in eligibility, enrollment, availability of funds, or increases in students’ external resources.
