IndiaYou will complete the majority of your application on-line through your HSU GoAbroad Portal. Application materials become available in this portal approximately 6-9 months prior to the study abroad term.

How do I start my application?

To begin your application, you should go to the Web page for your chosen program on the HSU GoAbroad website. Then click on the "apply now" link . Then answer the first question to determine if you are an HSU student or an outside applicant. If you are an HSU student, you will log in with your HSU user name and password - you do NOT need to create a new log in.  Most of your demographic information will be imported from HSU's central records system at this time. If you are a non-HSU student, you will be asked to provide this information. Once you have answered the application questions you will have access to your HSU GoAbroad portal where you will be able to view all of the application materials required for your chosen program.

Start planning to study abroad early in your academic career. Attending an informational meeting in your freshman year is a good idea. Some programs require you to have junior standing but for others you do not have to wait until your junior year to study abroad. For many students it is easier to find courses abroad that will help them progress towards graduation in their sophomore year. Scholarship deadlines have no relation to program applications dates - sometimes they are earlier. Plan early!


You must have a passport to travel abroad. If you have a passport it must be valid for at least 6 months after you plan to return home.
