  2. EXPLORE global.hws.edu to search online brochure pages for programs that are a good academic fit. READ all the info.

  3. Need guidance? ATTEND an optional "Which Programs for Me?" meeting. SIGN UP for a session online.

  4. COMPLETE the online application*, WRITE a strong essay, GET YOUR APPLICATION E-SIGNED by your adviser, and SUBMIT all components of the application online by the deadline.

*Select the “Apply” button on the online program brochure page to create an account and begin your application. Note that the “Apply” button will not become active on the page until shortly after each semester’s HWSabroad information session.
