Before You Apply

The online application will involve uploading the following. We recommend collecting these documents before you start the online application. Ultimately, you will need these in electronic format so they can be attached to your online application.

  1. Your high school academic record (courses and grades) from Grade 9 through Fall 2023. Typically students request their high school transcript (official or unofficial) from their high schoolʻs records office. Check to see if your Fall 2023 grades are on your transcript. If your Fall 2023 grades are not yet recorded on your transcript, submit your transcript AND your Fall 2023 report card.
  2. The Parent/Guardian Approval Form.
  3. If you will be traveling to O‘ahu to participate in this program (i.e., you live elsewhere during the academic year), please also submit the Adult Sponsor Agreement Form as part of your online application. Note: The Summer Scholar Program is a day program and campus housing is not available.
