Step One: Before Applying for UHM 3+2 Programs

Each UHM 3+2 Program is in cooperation with a partner institution in specific field(s) of study. Even if your institution has a 3+2 Program with UHM, it does not mean that every student from this institution is qualified to apply. Please check with your college/school to make sure if your undergraduate major is covered by the 3+2 Program Agreement that UHM has with your institution.

There are some requirements that students need to meet before apply for UHM 3+2 Program. Generally, by the end of students’ junior year, they should have:

  • Completed all undergraduate academic requirements with the exception of the culminating project. The culminating project will need to be finished during the first year at UHM and graded by the faculty members of students’ undergraduate institutions
  • Met English proficiency test requirement (meet one of the following requirements only) of:
    • TOEFL- iBT 85
    • TOEFL- paper based 563
    • IELTS (Academic) 6.5 with no less than 6.0 of each subject
  • Maintained minimum GPA 3.0 or equivalent grade point out of 100-scale

(Some graduate programs may have additional entrance requirements, for detailed program requirements, please contact UHM 3+2 Program.)

PS: in most of the cases, junior year means the students’ third academic year. But for students majoring in medicine, public health or other five-year ungraduated programs, junior year means the students’ fourth academic year.
