Tuition and fee payments can be made by:
Checks tendered to the University of Hawaii or any department therein, and returned to the maker's bank for any reason will result in a $25.00 charge and a hold will be placed on your account. DO NOT STOP PAYMENT on checks. A stop payment on a check is considered a returned check and is not acknowledged as an official drop from courses or withdrawal from the University.
Students who have not met their financial obligations (traffic fines, library fines, locker fees, lab breakage charges, transcript fees, loans, rental contracts, etc.) to the satisfaction of the University of Hawaii may be denied a variety of enrollment services including registration, withdrawal, and transcripts. Enrollment at the University of Hawaii signifies consent to, and acceptance of all policies and procedures governing enrollment, including financial liability. Students who fail to remit payment when due, agree to pay University of Hawaii all reasonable costs for collection, to include collection agency, attorney's and court fees. Copies of the delinquent financial obligations policy and procedures are available for inspection at the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Students and the campus business office.

THIRD PARTY SPONSOR SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS
If your tuition is being paid by a third party sponsoring agency (e.g. World Health Organization, East-West Center, Alu Like, Vocational Rehabilitation, armed forces branch, State of Hawaii Department of Education, etc.), your third party payment will automatically be posted to your student account within 48 hours after you have registered. Your account information will be displayed on the Review My Charges/Make an Online Payment page. You are responsible to pay the remaining tuition and/or fees by the appropriate payment receipt deadline. If KISC does not receive a letter of financial guarantee, purchase order or authorization letter from your sponsor at least 48 hours prior to your payment receipt deadline, you must pay for your own tuition and fees. When the sponsor sends payment for the tuition and fees, the University will process a refund. If you have questions or want to confirm that your sponsor has met University billing requirements, please call KISC. If the third party sponsoring agency does not make payment for your tuition for any reason after being billed by the University, you will be responsible for paying any unpaid balances on your student account. Failure to do so will result in sanctions for outstanding financial obligations being imposed on your student account.
Submit loan deferment forms to KISC after tuition and fees are paid.
HOPE SCHOLARSHIP AND LIFETIME LEARNING 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 Hope and Lifetime Learning tax credits as well as other education related tax credits can be found at www.hawaii.edu/1098T or by contacting your tax advisor. All students, except non-resident aliens, who were charged qualified tuition and related expenses from January 1 to December 31, 2007, 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 2007 calendar year. The form will be mailed to your Permanent Address by January 31, 2008, as required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Duplicate 1098-T tax forms may be obtained at www.hawaii.edu/1098T after January 31. To ensure receipt of this important tax document, please update your Permanent Address on file at the Admissions and Records Office by mail or in person. You must provide your Social Security Number to the University. 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.
Students who cannot pay in full by December 9, 2011 have the option to enroll in the payment plan. Cost to join the payment plan is $30 per semester. You must have a minimum unpaid balance of $300.00 to enroll in the payment plan.
Once you enroll in the payment plan, you are expected to pay all financial charges incurred as you will not be dis-enrolled from classes for nonpayment.

If the University is unable to process payment for any reason (e.g. insufficient funds, closed credit card, close bank account, incorrect bank information, expired credit card etc.) you or your authorized user will receive an email notification and you will be assessed a late payment fee of $30.00 A late payment fee is assessed for EACH missed payment. If payment is not received a financial hold will be placed on your student account. If full payment is not received by the end of all scheduled payments, you will be notified that full payment must be received within 15 days or sanctions will be imposed. If payment is not received within 15 days, your student’s account will be referred to a collection agency and other sanctions as defined in University of Hawaii Administrative Rules, Chapter 20-10. http://www.hawaii.edu/offices/bor/adminrules/chapter10.pdf will be imposed.
All financial aid and scholarships received by the University shall be applied in full to your student account balance at the time of receipt and the remaining installment payments in the plan will be reduced.
