Our admission process is designed to discover a talented, distinguished, diverse undergraduate population. Although test scores and GPAs are important, we look beyond statistics and grades to identify enthusiastic students who demand immersive and unique learning opportunities.
Big Opportunities Await
Some students are drawn to Heidelberg because of our academic reputation, career readiness programs, and innovative integrated curriculum. For others, it's our beautiful location, tight-knit community, and strong faculty-student collaboration. Most often, it's both. Join Heidelberg’s enthusiastic community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni who all embody our dedication to academic excellence and personal growth.
The admission application process at Heidelberg allows us to get to know you, your achievements and your aspirations. We also strongly encourage you to visit campus, so that you can get to know us better and we can meet you in person and not just on paper. Our admission staff is here to answer your questions and help you through the process of applying. Please feel free to contact us if there is anything we may assist you with as you complete and submit your application.
