How To Apply - Graduate

If you are in a combined BA/MA or integrated undergraduate/graduate degree program, and have not yet earned your bachelor's degree (or equivalent), please follow the application instructions for Undergraduate Students.

Please submit the following application materials. Incomplete applications will be placed on hold until all items have been received.

STEP 1 - Home University Sends Nomination Email

  • If you plan to attend UH Manoa as a Regular Exchange or Hoakipa student, you must first receive a nomination from your home university. Please inquire with your home university exchange office about nomination procudures. (Independent students do not need to be nominated and may go directly to Step 2, below.)
