UP Application Procedure

What comes next?

When a student is accepted into the program, the UP office will notify the student and ask him/her to fill out and return an Intent to Register form. The student will then be given a UH number and instruction to sign up online for a user name and password in order to pay a deposit of $5,000 (course fee deposit) and $500 (housing & meals deposit) online via credit card. This deposit must be paid no later than two months before the program begins. It is refundable only in the event of visa denial or other documented emergency.

Upon receiving the deposit, the UP office will send an official Letter of Acceptance, including conditional admission to University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, along with the Form I-20 for obtaining an F-1 student visa (see information below on F-1 student visa application). Immediately upon receiving the student visa, the student should pay the remaining course and housing fees for one semester. Final payment deadline: one month prior to program start date.
