Dual Admission students are enrolled in two distinct but academically related colleges or institutions, or participate in two related academic programs. In some instances, they may be high school students taking college-level courses. You may apply to the Dual Admission and Enrollment Program directly out of high school, as a college transfer student, or as an adult student.
As a Dual Admission student at Heidelberg, you’ll receive:
- Academic advising at both Heidelberg and your participating college
- Student ID's at both schools will provide you with access to services
- Notification of Heidelberg's and your college's campus events
- The opportunity to participate in events & clubs at Heidelberg
- All general education and other non-remedial courses in which you receive a grade of "C-" or better will transfer and be applied toward fulfilling degree requirements at Heidelberg University
- Courses you complete at Heidelberg may be applied toward your Associate's Degree
While you are enrolled at one of the participating colleges, you may enroll in one class at Heidelberg each semester for a maximum of four semesters prior to transfer. Heidelberg will charge you the same tuition rate as your community college; you are responsible for any additional lab fees and books.
You will begin the program by completing your Associate of Arts or Science and then transfer to Heidelberg to complete your Bachelor's degree. The Dual Admission and Enrollment Program requires that you meet all admission requirements and be accepted by both the participating college and Heidelberg.
- For New Students: If you are a high school graduate and have no prior college credit, your admission to the program will be based on a review of your high school transcript and/or GED.
- For Transfer Students: If you are currently enrolled in college, or have previously been enrolled in college, you may apply to the Dual Admission and Enrollment Program if you have completed less than 60 semester hours. You must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.
- For Adult Students: If you are age 24 and over, you are eligible to take courses through the Dual Admission and Enrollment Program. Adult applicants must submit a high school transcript and/or GED, and transcripts from any colleges previously attended. ACT/SAT scores are not required.
