Graduate level applications are a two part process. Students must submit a University of Hawaiʻi Online Application form which includes uploads of supplemental documents to the online system and requests for all required letters of recommendation. Official transcripts for all prior coursework must then be requested and sent to the UH Hilo Graduate Division.
Applications are not considered complete until all required program documents, a minimum of 3 letters of recommendation and all official transcripts have been received.
Information on program specific application requirements can be found in the Program Application Checklists on the Graduate Programs page.
All applicants (except for non-degree seeking, summer school or continuing education applicants) are required to make an on-line payment of a $50.00 non-refundable and non-transferable application fee (by Credit Card) to complete submission of the application.
Your UH Hilo Graduate application must be submitted online. If you need assistance, please contact us at email@example.com.
