College is Possible
»»»»»»»»Cost of College

The community colleges of the University of Hawai'i system are publicly supported institutions, which means that tuition and fees are generally lower in comparison to many other colleges and universities. Many students also find that they are eligible for federal and state grants, loans and many other forms of financial aid, which helps pay for college.

Go to "Get Money for College" for details on how to apply for financial aid.

Hawai'i residents currently pay $106 per credit. On average, a student would pay approximately $1,272 per semester for full-time (12 credits) enrollment, plus any student fees charged by the campuses. Books, supplies, living expenses, transportation and personal costs may vary, depending on your situation. Of course, if you qualify for financial aid, your college cost will be reduced significantly.

We urge everyone to apply for financial aid by submitting the "Free Application for Federal Student Aid" (FAFSA) form.
