Hyderabad, India

India is the world’s seventh largest country and home to more than a billion people. Its size is outweighed by its sheer diversity, each region with its own distinctive flavor. Hyderabad is the state capital of Andhra Pradesh region in the southwest and now a major city with a thriving hi-tech industry. In fact, the area around Hyderabad and Secunderabad is nicknamed “Cyber-abad” and is referred to as India’s second Silicone Valley, after Bangalore. Hyderabad has long been a front-runner in terms of attracting huge investments from Fortune 500 Companies.

Credit for Semester Study Abroad

For High Point University to recognize the credits you complete abroad, you must earn 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 foreign 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.
