Heidelberg University understands that going to college as an adult can be exciting—and challenging. Adult students enrich the classroom experience and add diversity to our campus community. As an adult learner, you will be welcome here at Heidelberg. Whether you’re a returning student or brand new to college, Heidelberg is here to guide you toward success with resources that help adult learners to get the most out of their educational journey.
While adult students are those 23 and older, younger students who have had a break in their education due to life circumstances or who are married and/or have dependents can also apply as an adult.
Even though I am in class with children who are, for the most part, slightly younger than my children, I feel I am right where I am supposed to be. It’s comfortable for me.— Deborah “Dee” Hopkins '18
