  • Mandatory Advising Guidelines:
    • All students are encouraged to be advised to assure that they are taking classes relevant to their individual degrees. There are four categories of students who must be advised:
      • Students with no SHSU GPA (all new freshmen and transfer students).
      • Students who have below a 2.5 overall GPA.
      • Students subject to TSI requirements.
      • Students who have 90+ hours, including the current semester. This is to assure that they are on the right track towards graduation.

Study Abroad

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. Don’t let financial matters deter you from study abroad! Funding and scholarship resources can be found on our Funding Study Abroad page.

Explore programs in the Bearkats Abroad Portal, powered by Via TRM today. Create your account, build your profile, and get matched to SHSU-approved programs at any time.

Bearkats Abroad Portal

National Student Exchange (NSE) is a great domestic options to study abroad. NSE provides accessible collegiate study away to undergraduate students at member colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Through this academic program, SHSU students can spend a semester or full year studying away at another member campus, and continue to make progress toward their SHSU degree. After a semester or year on exchange, students return to SHSU to complete their remaining degree requirements and graduate on time.
