Registration Policies

Late Registration

Registrations received after the registration deadline will be charged a late fee of $50 and will be registered on a space-available basis. The fee will not be charged if the student cannot be registered. Punahou School reserves the right to end or refuse registration at any time after the registration deadline.

Registration Adjustments

Adjustments in registration (including, but not limited to: replacing one course for another, or requesting course time changes) after forms have been submitted online and/or received by the Summer School Office will incur the following fees. No adjustments, with the exception of withdrawals, will be allowed on or after the first day of classes. All adjustments must be submitted in writing to the Summer School Office. Requests may be mailed, dropped off or emailed.
