Leeward students – you're almost there! Just one more week of class, then finals, and you'll have made it through the Fall semester. Now, it's time to set your sights on Spring 2021. Don't let the challenges of a pandemic stop you from continuing your education. We're here to help you every step of the way, and we'll start by dispelling some of the common myths that might prevent you from continuing at Leeward in Spring 2021.
“I can’t afford college right now.”
There are so many forms of financial aid even during a pandemic– emergency assistance for those in need, financial relief for those returning to college, reimbursement of expenses (books, supplies, transportation) for SNAP recipients, and a variety of scholarships and grants through the University of Hawai‘i.
The money is out there. Let us show you that you CAN afford college. Visit our website for information about these resources and more.
