I first heard about HPU through an university agent while in High School, who had recently connected with the university. I had always planned to attend a college in the US and I was very excited about the possibility of attending a college in Hawaii.

International students are required by U.S. Immigration to be full-time students during the fall and spring semesters. Registering for less-than full-time must be authorized by an International Student Advisor (ISA). Your home institution may have additional requirements if you are a study abroad student.

Generally, tuition is paid at the beginning of each semester. Students may pay tuition before they arrive at HPU or upon their arrival. (Tuition payment options)
