Financial Aid

Welcome to the Kapi‘olani Community College Financial Aid Website! Take the time to browse the resources we have online for financial aid. The Financial Aid Staff is also here to help you through the financial aid application process. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

*Please note that when a student enters college at any age, due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), most information can only be disclosed to the student unless an Authorization of  Disclosure form is completed. Please contact our office for this form.



  • The 2017-2018 FAFSA Application is available for students to complete and submit as early as October 1, 2016!! This is a permanent change, which enables students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.
  • Priority date is March 1. If you are able to submit your FAFSA and all necessary documents by March 1, our office will notify you of your 2017-18 financial aid award/results before the tuition payment deadline. Completed applications submitted after the priority date are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are depleted and are subject to program awarding guidelines. Thus, please be prepared to pay for tuition and/or other educational expenses until our office has finished reviewing your financial aid application.



  1. All communication will be sent to your UH email if available. You should check your UH Email at least once a week.
  2. There may be additional steps or more information may be needed after documents are reviewed. Only after all steps are completed will students be awarded financial aid.
