Wait List Policy

Most courses have limited enrollment. Registration for noncredit courses is ongoing and is processed on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to be placed on a waiting list, you must register and pay the course fee. Payment of the course fee does not guarantee enrollment in the course. If a space in the course does not become available, the payment will be refunded. Click here for details on Courses and Instructors.

Financial Liability Policy

Enrollment at the University of Hawai‘i 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 the University of Hawai‘i all reasonable costs for collection, to include collection agency, attorney's and court fees.

Withdrawal/Refund Policy

You receive a full refund if your request is received by 12 noon two working days before the first class meeting, unless otherwise specified.

Withdrawal/refund requests are made by phone (956-8400), in person, or by writing to Outreach College (postmarked by the refund deadline). Faxed or mailed withdrawal requests must include the student's signature.

Failure to attend class or notifying your instructor of your intent to withdraw does not constitute an official withdrawal from the course.

Agencies submitting purchase orders for student registration fees will be billed regardless of attendance, unless notification of withdrawal is made by the specified refund deadline.

Refunds for check and cash payments are mailed and refunds for charge payments are credited to the account originally charged. Refunds may take 4 to 6 weeks to process.

If you have a question regarding the status of your refund, call the Outreach College business office at 956-5899.

Evening Monthly Parking Permits

Evening permits may be purchased at the UHM Parking Office. There is no online purchase currently available for Non-Credit students, as they cannot be verified through the UH academic registration system.

The cost of the evening parking permit is $21 per month, which will increase to $24 per month in Fall 2010.
