  • Third, stop over in the Office of Global Education and Study Abroad (Bagby 315) and talk with Dr. Widdows about the numerous summer study abroad programs available - and don't forget to pick up the course approval form!
  • Discuss your summer study abroad plans with your advisor and have the course approval form completed and signed.
  • The final step is to have your application completed and turned in by the appropriate deadline - then enjoy your summer program!

*Please request that all transcripts be sent directly to the Office of Global Education and Study Abroad (attn: Dr. Daniella Widdows, H-SC Box 605, Hampden-Sydney, VA 23943) for any foreign study program.  Grades in courses taken by language majors in fulfillment of their major requirements receive quality points and are computed as part of their GPA.  Non-language majors will receive credit hours only with no quality points (actual grades are not averaged into the GPA).  In all courses, you must receive a grade of C or better to earn H-SC transfer credit.
