Federal Financial Aid Programs


The Financial Aid Office can help make a degree financially possible for every qualified BYU-Hawaii student. However, federal financial aid is just one part of a payment strategy that should include money saved by the family and student for attending school.


Federal Student Aid programs offered at BYU-Hawaii include:

Please, note that:

  • Students must be eligible for financial aid, complete all processing, meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements and be enrolled in sufficient eligible credit hours before funds are disbursed. Although a student is awarded and has sufficient credit hours, funds cannot be disbursed if he or she is not making Satisfactory Academic Progress.
  • Students enrolled as visiting or non-degree seeking are not eligible for federal aid, scholarships, or any other financial aid.
  • The Financial Aid Office regularly updates its information regarding student financial aid applicants/recipients. As information changes, an applicant’s award eligibility may be affected. For example, additional financial aid, including but not limited to scholarships and other monies awarded or identified after a tentative award has been determined, may reduce or eliminate your eligibility. In some instances, financial aid recipients may even be required to repay a portion or all of their award.
  • If it is necessary to adjust or modify your award, the BYUH FASA Office will attempt to notify you of the change.

As a courtesy, Financial Aid makes the following guide available to any BYU-Hawaii incoming domestic students.
