Cost of Attendance

ESTIMATED COSTS OF ATTENDANCE FOR AN ACADEMIC YEAR (2 SEMESTERS)

The Cost of Attendance Budget (COA) represents the estimated cost of attending Hawaii Pacific University for two semesters based on full-time enrollment. The purpose of this budget is to provide you, the student, with an idea of what your expenses might be to attend.

For actual (direct) costs visit HPU’s Tuition and Fees and On-Campus Housing.

A variety of expenses are included in the Cost of Attendance, including:

  • tuition

  • registration and other required fees

  • books

  • living expenses

  • transportation

  • an estimate of personal expenses related to attending school

The COA is only an estimate based upon the average expenses of all students. These costs, therefore, do not necessarily represent every expense a student might incur throughout a given year. Your actual experience may be different from these averages based on your own personal spending choices and on how many courses you take each semester.

Note: The estimated budget is based on a student being enrolled full-time in two consecutive semesters. The institution will adjust the estimates if a student enrolls in only one semester or in three semesters, or less than full-time. The Federal Government allows a variety of expenses to be included, but not all.
