The East-West Center promotes better relations and understanding among the people and nations of the United States, Asia, and the Pacific through cooperative study, research, and dialogue.

GRE and GMAT scores are required by some University of Hawai‘i academic programs.  Because the Center is responsible for submitting applicant’s application to the University they need to submit their official GRE or GMAT score report to the East-WestCenter in order to complete their UH application. Official GRE and GMAT score reports should reach EWC by mid-January so as not to delay the UH admission process.
