For Gustavus Adolphus students: Hawai’i Pacific University uses semester credits. Each GAC unit = 4 semester credits. Thus, some HPU courses, which are worth 3 semester credits each, are worth 0.75 GAC units. Be sure to discuss the irregular unit totals with your advisors as you select courses.

Housing Deposit. In addition to the costs shown in the budget at the CIS website, participants will pay a refundable $500 housing deposit. The deposit may be fully or partially refunded after the program ends.
