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.
Note: In order to satisfy General Education (Core) requirements, a course must earn a minimum of 3 credits. While HPU is able to accept a relevant course worth one or two credits, one and two credit courses earned at the University of East Anglia will not satisfy your General Education requirements.

Meals are self-catered. Food supplies can be purchased from The Shop, a Student Union-run store, for home cooking, but if you prefer eating out there is a wide variety of cafes and restaurants on site as well.
