About SHSU's Study Abroad Programs

SHSU's Study Abroad Programs offer students the opportunity to engage in an educational and cultural learning experience. Students have the opportunity to study at one of our Exchange universities, on an Affiliated Transfer Credit program, or an SHSU Faculty-Led summer/winter term program.

While abroad, students should be able to earn credit hours toward their degree. In addition, students who meet the requirements, may be eligible to receive study abroad scholarships. Student’s enrollment in a program of study abroad approved for credit may be considered enrolled at SHSU for the purpose of applying for assistance under the Federal Student Aid programs.
