Graduate Admission

Graduate study at Heidelberg will push you to take the foundational knowledge you gained as an undergraduate to the next level. You’ll work closely with faculty to explore new frontiers in your discipline and earn experience that will prepare for life and leadership in an increasingly interconnected world.

How to Apply


Taking the next step in your education requires commitment, dedication, and a passion for your discipline. We are excited you're taking that step with us. Your first step is to complete an application for admission. There is no application fee. You will select your program and any tracks within the application. Graduate students at Heidelberg can apply to start at any semester, with the exception of the MBA program.

Students who were previously enrolled at Heidelberg, but left for any reason should complete the Readmission Application.


You must submit your undergraduate and any relevant graduate transcripts directly from the institution to Heidelberg. Students who apply with less than the GPA requirement may be conditionally admitted at the discretion of the director. International applicants will not need to submit original transcripts as they are submitted with the NACES evaluation.

For the MAC and MAE programs, transcripts will only be accepted from a college or university accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools Higher Learning Commission or other regional accrediting commissions which have been recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
