Students may only apply to one program per academic term. If you would like to change programs during the application process, please contact a study abroad advisor.

How do I start my application?

To begin your application, go to the Web page for your chosen program on the HSU GoAbroad website. Then click on the "apply now" link . 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. If you are a non-HSU student, you will be asked to provide some personal 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 many others you do not have to wait until your junior year to study abroad. For some 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.
