Studying Abroad or Away During the Summer
There are three different options available to Hampden-Sydney students wishing to study abroad in another country or away in the U.S. during the summer/May Term.
Please be aware, the College does not approve participation in a program whose location has a U.S. State Department Travel Advisory of Level 3 or higher and/or a Level 3 CDC Travel Health Notice. Students who would like to petition for an exemption to this policy are advised to reach out to the director of Global Education no later than March 1 (Fall Programs) or October 1 (Spring Programs). Likewise, students who are not vaccinated for Covid-19 will need to request an exemption to the vaccination requirement.
Participating in a Global Education program does not automatically complete H-SC's COMPASS/EL Core Requirement. Students must enroll in a specific class that meets that requirement. Please discuss your options with the Global Ed director.
Global Ed funding applications are due in January -- the first Wednesday of classes -- for summer/May Term programs. For more information, click the orange box below. Matriculated H-SC students only are eligible to apply; applicants will normally be notified of their awarding status by January 29 via campus email.
