Congratulations!

Your student has made the decision to study abroad and is about to embark on an adventure of a lifetime. We hope you are proud that your student is interested in seeing more of the world, making new friends from other cultures, developing cross-cultural competencies, and enhancing his or her academic interests and career prospects.

By now, your student has met with and discussed their program with an HPU Study Abroad Advisor and may already have completed the study abroad application and other requisite forms. For the rest of the semester, your student will be attending to logistical matters as well as the academic preparations involved in studying abroad. We know you will be with your student every step of the way, so we have prepared this guide to help answer some of the questions and concerns you might have on topics relevant to your student’s overseas experience. Use the Family Resources menu on the left to navigate through important information you’ll need to know to help your student plan and execute his or her study abroad experience.

In addition to the resources on the HPU Study Abroad website, excellent resources can be found on the Center for Global Education’s resource page.

Study Abroad is a unique educational and cultural opportunity for all students at HPU. The 18th century French author Fougeret de Monbron wrote that “The world is a great book, of which they who never stir from home read only a page.”

Your student is off to a good start for a productive and enjoyable experience, but your support and interest are equally important. Together, we can ensure that our overseas scholar gets to read many pages of this great book!
