Printer-friendly version


Semester General
International Students
Fall 2019 Application DUE
March 1, 2019




The Graduate Records Examination (GRE) is NOT required for Rehabilitation Counseling. International students must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). TOEFL test scores over two years old are not accepted.


Completed applications are first screened by the UH Mānoa Graduate Division’s Admission Office.  Applications that meet the requirements of the Graduate Division are forwarded to the Department of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science‘s graduate Rehabilitation Counselor Education Program where applications are subjected to a more comprehensive and intensive review by the graduate faculty.  The Rehabilitation Counselor Education program faculty then makes a recommendation to the Department Chair to either admit or deny the applicant. 

The final decision to make a formal offer of admission rests with the Graduate Division, which takes into full consideration the recommendation of the graduate program.  Admission is valid only for the semester for which a student was accepted.  The Graduate Division notifies each applicant of its decision.
