All applicants must apply for admission to both UH Mānoa through the Graduate Division AND to the Marine Biology Graduate Program. Follow all steps below to ensure that a complete application packet is submitted by the deadline.
Annually, the application deadline for admission the following fall semester is December 15 (since December 15 falls on a weekend in 2018, the deadline for submission of all materials for Fall 2019 is December 17, 2018).
Review all the links below to submit your University application and review general requirements for all graduate applicants. This section covers materials needed to be sent to Graduate Division; the next section covers other materials required by the Marine Biology Graduate Program.
The MBGP application listed below is separate and in addition to the required University application and materials (above).
You do not have to have completed every step required by Graduate Division (above) to start/complete the Marine Biology Supplemental Application (below), but you will need to complete the Graduate Division's application and pay the fee to have access to upload Supplemental Materials (below).
Although it is not required, it is strongly advised that applicants contact Regular/Cooperating Faculty in the Program to determine if there is mutual interest in working together.
