Study Abroad

Semester Programs

Below are semester exchange options offered by High Point University. Most of these programs are available to qualified students without a language proficiency requirement.

Important Information

Because the majority of HPU semester programs may be competitive, meaning that the host university can accept a maximum number of study abroad students in any given term, students are advised to consider three programs that meet their academic needs, finding and submitting course equivalencies for their top three program options. In the event that a student is not able to be placed at their top choice program, their application may be considered for their relevant alternate programs.

Students applying to study abroad on an HPU semester program should familiarize themselves with the program’s information regarding costs, fees, terms, academic offering, room, and board. More thorough information will be provided in an advising appointment with a study abroad advisor.

Please be aware that costs, including explanations of fees, listed on an HPU semester program’s school’s or provider’s website for similar programs may differ from those listed on HPU’s website. The costs for an HPU, HPU-affiliated, or HPU exchange semester program (tuition & fees; room and board, where applicable) will be charged at HPU rates. Always refer to the information provided by HPU.

Contact the Office of Study Abroad for more information: (336) 841-9280.

Note to Presidential Scholars

HPU scholarships awarded under the Presidential Scholarship Program can be applied toward the program fee for exchange programs only. See Financial Aid for Study Abroad for more information.

Other Semester Study Abroad Options

The Office of Study Abroad offers additional programs for semester study abroad. These additional programs vary from exchange programs. One major difference is in the use of financial aid. Whereas a Presidential Scholar can use their Presidential Scholarship award towards the program fee of an exchange program, they can not use their award towards the program fee for an affiliated study abroad program. Read more about our affiliated study abroad programs and contact the Office of Study Abroad for more information.


The Office of Study Abroad is located in Cottrell Hall, Suite 142. Building #12 on the HPU Campus Map.
