PhD Pre-admission Advising and Virtual Tours

Because of the large numbers of applicants and the fact that many are not local to the UHM campus in Honolulu, pre-admission advising is done primarily online. We welcome questions via email or by phone calls to the department office.

A primary way to learn more about the program is through our virtual tours. In general, we won’t set up personal appointments to meet with students until they have participated in one of these online sessions. Most students find that the virtual tours are the best way to learn more about program requirements. Virtual tour information is posted on the LTEC web site early in the fall semester with schedules of dates and times as well as how to access the tour’s online space. If you want to be notified when these will happen, contact the LTEC office (see contacts below) and we will put you on a list to notify you when the tours are scheduled. You don’t need to sign up in advance to join a virtual tour—just join the meeting to learn more. Participation in a virtual tour is not required for applying but is highly recommended.
