Students walking abroad

To All Students on Leave, Field Study, or Exchange

At this time, we ask students currently away from Hampshire to indicate their enrollment plans for the upcoming semester. You can officially declare your plans on TheHub. We trust your time away was productive and rewarding, and we look forward to your return.

Failure to notify this office of your plans for future enrollment by April 5, 2019 will result in your withdrawal from Hampshire. Please do not hesitate to call CASA, the Center for Academic Support and Advising, to discuss any of the following: leave experiences, academic progress, possible areas of Division II and Division III, or any other academic situation that affects your plans for next semester. Call 413.559.5498 to speak with one of the deans.

Transcripts and Evaluations for Field Study and Exchange Programs: In order to record successful completion of your study away from campus for your Hampshire academic record and transcript, you need to obtain transcripts and/or evaluations from your field supervisor(s) or the institution you attended.

The housing operations office will send an email to your Hampshire email address shortly after the enrollment notification deadline.
