Financial Aid

What is Financial Aid?

Financial aid helps students and their families pay for college. This financial assistance covers educational expenses including tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and transportation. There are several types of financial aid, including grants and scholarships, work study and loans. Financial aid awards may include a combination of the various types of aid.

The Financial Aid Office has professional staff members to administer the aid programs and advise students and their families regarding the financial aid and scholarship opportunities available to them.

Find more information in the UH Maui College Financial Aid website.

Gift aid that is awarded based on a variety of factors, such as academic achievement, leadership, field of study, and/or financial need. Scholarships do not need to be repaid.

A NEW single online scholarship application, the UH System Common Scholarship Application, is available through NextGen Web Solutions Scholarship Manager. The application is available from December 1 through March 1. Use this ONE application to apply for scholarships at your home campus as well as UH System scholarships.

A security feature causes the application to time out after 45 minutes so it is highly recommended that you prepare your personal statement and essays in a word document or PDF ahead of time and then copy or paste into the application. You may save and continue your application any time before submission, but you will be unable to return to make changes after you submit your application.

The deadline for application and supporting documentation is March 1, 2014 by 4:00 pm HST.
Scholarship questions may be sent to the UH System Scholarship Office at scholars@hawaii.edu.
