Financial Aid Home

Aloha! HPU's financial aid programs are designed to help students pay their educational expenses. 

The HPU Financial Aid Office is here to help and empower you to make informed decisions.

  • The Financial Aid staff will communicate via your HPU student email. Check your HPU email and Self-Service Portal regularly at MYHPU PORTAL.
    • HPU email is our official mode of communication.
  • Remember to include your name and HPU student id number on all documents you submit. Mahalo!

    The 24/25 FAFSA form is available for short periods while the United States Department of Education monitors site performance and updates the form to provide you with a better experience. 

    Learn more about the 2024–25 FAFSA form.

    Due to the anticipated processing delays of the 24/25 FAFSA, priority consideration for HPU need-based aid has been extended to March 1, 2024.

    Institutions will not be receiving processed FAFSA data from the United States Department of Education until mid-March (estimated). This means Financial Aid Offer letters will not be available until after that time period.

    Visit regularly to see the status of the FAFSA application as well as to complete the 24/25 FAFSA.

To maximize financial aid eligibility, HPU encourages all students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).Federal financial aid is meant to supplement, not replace, the payment responsibilities of students and families. Completing the FAFSA does not commit you to accepting Title IV Federal Student Aid. It does, however, increase your opportunities for all financial aid assistance.

HPU Federal School Code 007279

Tuition and fees are based on your enrollment status (full-time, three-quarter time, half-time and less than half-time). Your advisor can assist you with establishing a more specific tuition estimate.

The Cost of Attendance Budget (COA) represents the estimated cost of attending Hawaii Pacific University for two semesters based on full-time enrollment.

Check your MyHPU student portal regarding what forms you might need to complete your financial aid process.
