Exchange students can enroll only in courses in the Faculty of Engineering or the Faculty of Humanities, making this program not suited for those studying business or Spanish.
For students interested in studying a course in Spanish, a Spanish Language Course is available for students with intermediate knowledge of the Spanish language. Students will need to take an online Spanish level test before enrolling in the language course.
Classes at UPC are valued using the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Two ECTS = 1 HPU credits (e.g., 6 ECTS = 3 credits, 5 ECTS = 3 credits). Students should aim to enroll in 30 ECTS per semester.

For High Point University to recognize the credits you complete abroad, you must earn at least a grade equivalent to a C in the U.S. HPU will not accept credit for courses with grades of C– or below. Grades for all courses earned abroad are recorded on the international transcript. Credits are received by HPU as transfer credits, which means the credit is received but the grade is not. Your HPU grade point average will not be impacted positively or negatively by your study abroad courses.
