Study Abroad

Academic Information

Study Abroad programs are just that – study. They are not vacations or tours to different countries, or a break from a student’s studies at HPU. Students must attend class, meet all course requirements, stay for the duration of the program, take their examinations, and earn appropriate grades during their time overseas. All courses taken will be posted to students’ HPU transcripts as the “equivalent” HPU course.

Even with a semester or summer abroad, HPU students should be able to graduate on time. We encourage students to make plans as early as possible if they wish to study abroad so they can choose the program that will allow them to take courses that will fit their HPU degree program.
