Financial Aid for Summer Sessions Visiting Students

Contact the Financial Aid Office at your university or college for information about summer financial aid availability and procedures BEFORE registering for classes.

Some colleges and universities have financial aid Consortium Agreements with the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. If you need the UHM Financial Aid Services to complete a Consortium Agreement form, fax the form to (808) 956-3985.

Financial Aid for Current UH Mānoa Students

Students receiving financial aid should contact the UH-Mānoa Financial Aid Office before registering for Outreach College campus classes, as your award may be based on enrollment on Mānoa campus only or your scholarship may not be applicable to Outreach College campus courses.

All students requesting Financial Aid for the Summer will have to submit a Summer Financial Aid application form to the Financial Aid Office. Form will be available on the Financial Aid Website at http://www.hawaii.edu/fas/

Financial aid applications for extension terms are processed manually, and delays should be anticipated. If your UHM financial aid is applicable to Outreach College courses and you will not be receiving your financial aid before your payment deadline for Outreach College courses, contact Outreach College Business Office, ocfiscal@hawaii.edu, (808) 956-5899.

Tax Credits

The U.S. Congress established federal tax credits for qualified college tuition and related expenses under the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. Information about the tax credits as well as other education related tax credits can be found at this website (www.hawaii.edu/1098T) or by contacting your tax advisor.

All students, except nonresident aliens, who were charged qualified tuition and related expenses from January 1-December 31 will receive a 1098-T tax form. This form will reflect amounts billed (not paid) for qualified tuition and related expenses and amounts paid for scholarship and grants during the calendar year. The form will be mailed to your Permanent Address. To ensure receipt of this important document, update your Permanent Address on file at the UH-Mānoa Admissions and Records Office, Queen Lili‘uokalani Center for Student Services, Room 001.

Note: The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 requires the University to collect and use students' Social Security Numbers or Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) to report qualified tuition and related expenses billed to students and scholarship and grant payments made to students to the IRS each year.
