Types of Programs

HPU's Study Abroad and International Exchange Programs can take you all over the world. We offer a wide range of programs in many exciting locations!

Partner Schools (Exchange Partners)
HPU has several partner schools where students can participate in a direct exchange. When students choose to go to a partner school, they pay tuition to HPU as normal using any HPU scholarships and financial aid. In addition to tuition, students will pay housing, travel and other fees separately. However, cost of living in many countries is less than living in Honolulu, so you may pay less for your semester abroad than if you spent the semester here at HPU!

Affiliated Programs
We also work with a number of study abroad organizations who offer a wide range of programs from traditional university settings to field-based programs to multi-country adventures. Depending on a student's interests or desired geographical location, affiliated programs may be a great option. All costs, including tuition, are paid directly to the organization, and they generally have one fee, which includes tuition, housing, and other costs. Federal financial aid can be used towards affiliated programs, and some are very affordable with costs less than HPU tuition for the whole term, including housing!
