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)
Review all the links below to submit your University application and review general requirements for applicants to UHM graduate programs. This section covers materials needed to be sent to UHM's Graduate Division; the next section covers other materials required by the Marine Biology Graduate Program.
The MBGP application steps listed below are separate and in addition to the forms and materials (above) that you send to UHM's Graduate Division. All materials from both sections must be submitted by the deadline (including letters and evaluation forms).
You need to at least start the online Graduate Division application (above) to have access to upload Supplemental Materials (below).
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.
