Complete ALL application steps below:

All applicants must complete materials for admission for both UH Mānoa through the Graduate Division AND 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 2019, we will accept applications through December 16)

  • Applications for Fall 2020 are now being accepted. All parts of the application (below) must be submitted by the deadline.
  • Applications are only accepted for fall semesters.
  • Although we do not have a "priority deadline," we strongly encourage applicants to submit at least the MBGP Supplemental Info Form (see below) before the end of November, so that we know to expect your application and can send you any reminders/updates/questions.


Although it is not required, it is strongly advised that applicants contact those Regular/Cooperating Faculty in the Program who do research in an area of interest to determine if there is mutual interest in possibly working together.


If you have questions, our page of Admissions FAQs might be helpful. Otherwise, please e-mail mbiograd@hawaii.edu.
