IV. Delegation of Authority
A. Special Credit Tuition Rates
The board has delegated the authority to the president or the president’s designee to set special credit tuition rates in RP6.202.IV.A. These rates will be posted in an attachment to this EP.
B. Summer Tuition
The Board has delegated authority to set summer tuition rates annually to the President or the President’s designee in RP6.202.IV.B. This delegation is based on the expectation that summer rate increases for residents are in line with the rate of increase of the academic year immediately preceding summer and that nonresident rates will not be lower than resident rates. Summer tuition for residents at UH Mānoa, UH Hilo and UH West O‘ahu will be set at the same rate as the regular tuition in the previous spring semester.
For the Community Colleges, the rate of increase in resident summer tuition rates will be no higher than the rate of increase in regular tuition for residents in the spring previous semester. In addition, special lower rates may be set at the same level as the regular tuition in the spring semester immediately preceding summer for continuing students or specific classes. The Community Colleges may also set tuition at the same rate as the University of Hawaii at Hilo for upper division courses.
Any increase in summer tuition rates for residents beyond the rates stated above shall require Board of Regents approval.
Non-resident summer tuition rates for all campuses will be set by the campuses based on the balance between affordability and financial requirements to cover costs.
This delegation of authority was approved by the Board of Regents on January 19, 2012 and revised on November 19, 2015.
