UH Continues its Tuition Exemption Status for Eligible Military Family Members

University of Hawaiʻi
Posted: Jan 10, 2005

HONOLULU — The University of Hawaiʻi system will continue to grant resident tuition status to eligible non-resident family members (previously referred to as "dependents") of military personnel who are on active duty and have been deployed as part of our country‘s war undertakings or other official military duties and assignments.

The university recognizes that these military personnel are considered "stationed" in Hawaiʻi and are eligible for this benefit despite that some of them may have been deployed to locations outside of Hawaiʻi. In these cases, current students may be exempt as authorized family members of military personnel who are on active duty and deployed.

A grace period of one semester will be granted in situations where the military personnel‘s rotation date expires prior to the start of the following semester.
