PAYING via Phone



Mailing Payment

Checks for tuition payments should be mailed to:

Hawai'i Pacific University

Accounts Receivable

500 Ala Moana Blvd., Suite 6420

Honolulu, HI 96813

Make your check payable to “Hawai'i Pacific University” and be sure to include your student ID number (beginning with the @ symbol) clearly written on the check. If your name is not printed on the check, please write your name on the check so your student account will be properly credited. If we are unable to verify the student's account, we will return the check to the sender. This may cause your student account to have financial holds which may stop you from registering for future courses, viewing your grades, or ordering transcripts. 

Payments must be received by the Business Office by the tuition due date (see the Academic Calendar). Payments received after the due date will be subject to late fees and holds on your academic records. TUITION IS ALWAYS DUE 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE START OF TERM.

Select one of the payment methods – Electronic Check (eCheck), Credit Card via Paypath, or ATM Debit Card.  Additional information about each payment is included below:

Online Payment Methods

Tuition and related charges may be paid online by eCheck from your US checking or US savings account. This type of payment results in an electronic debit of your bank account. Some banks do not allow this process – please confirm with your bank allows this type of transaction before proceeding. An ACH/electronic check is still a check. As with any check, please allow up to three (3) weeks for the funds to be transferred from your bank to our bank. 

A bank routing number, account number, and HPU student ID number are required to complete an eCheck payment.

Before making an eCheck payment, please verify your account information and that your bank allows electronic debiting on your account. Payments may be returned by banks for many reasons including but not limited to: a lack of sufficient funds; the use of an incorrect or invalid bank routing or account number; the account has been closed or frozen; the account is a non-transaction account; or if the bank does not participate in automated clearing house (ACH) transactions. 

If your bank returns your payment as unpaid for any reason, YOU WILL BE CHARGED A RETURNed ITEM FEE, late payment fee, and have financial holds placed on your registration and transcripts. Should you have additional questions about our policies, please view the Business Office Policies and Deadlines page. 

If you have authorized your parents or guardians to view your tuition statement online, they may make eCheck payments to your account by logging into:
