During periods 3 and 4, students often study two courses that last throughout both periods. Full-time studies correspond to 30 ECTS. Most courses are worth 7.5 ECTS each, which transfers as 4 HPU credits. Explore the full course catalog here.

Credit Transfer

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.
