Financial Aid


Whether you are new to the financial aid process or you've done it all before, we hope you find everything you need to help you before, during, and after your educational experience at Hawai'i Pacific University (HPU). Applying for aid can feel like a daunting process, but we are here to assist you and help you make informed decisions.

HPU's financial aid programs are designed to help students pay their educational expenses. Federal financial aid is meant to supplement, not replace, the payment responsibilities of students and families. To maximize aid eligibility and opportunities, it is highly recommended that all students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

HPU email is the official mode of communication, so all correspondence from the HPU Financial Aid Office is sent electronically to students via their HPU email. We encourage you to check your HPU email and Self-Service Portal regularly at MYHPU PORTAL.


Please remember to include the student's name and HPU student id number on all documents submitted, Mahalo!
