Payment Deadline

Spring 2019 Payment Deadline is Friday, December 14, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. (HST) 

Payment must be RECEIVED or you must sign up for the payment plan by the end of the late registration period at the campus offering the class. You are responsible for paying for your tuition and fees for classes you are enrolled in or for completely withdrawing from the courses by the appropriate deadlines (See Academic Calendar). Registration will not be automatically cancelled for non payment.

IMPORTANT: To avoid financial and academic penalties, be sure to drop any class you do not want, even if you have not paid for it.  Students who fail to meet the payment deadline may be subject to immediate dis-enrollment from all courses. Not all registrations are automatically cancelled due to non-payment.  To avoid dis-enrollment from classes, payment must be received by the Payment Deadline. 

If you do not want to keep a class, drop it in the 100% tuition refund period to avoid financial or academic penalties (e.g. “F” grade). Never assume that you will automatically be dropped from your classes due to non-payment or non-attendance. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure that your payment has been received by the deadline.
