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.
Credit Transfer
Students should enroll in 28-32 ECTS, which will transfer as 14-16 credits, as 2 ECTS = 1 HPU credit. Courses will meet the business administration elective requirements for students majoring in Business Administration.

Students also can take a crash course in German (1 credit) and continue to study German throughout the semester (3 credits). More information on language courses can be found on the International Programs page.
