Students are drawn to Heidelberg for different reasons - our academic reputation, career readiness programs, innovative integrated curriculum, beautiful location, tight-knit community, or strong faculty-student collaboration. We hope you'll join Heidelberg’s enthusiastic community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni who all embody our dedication to academic excellence and personal growth.
Heidelberg University is committed to a holistic approach to application review. We value you as a person, as well as your academic credentials and track record. With that in mind, we have a test optional admission process. Students are required to submit a transcript and are encouraged, but not required, to submit ACT/SAT scores, an essay and any other materials they feel represent them for our holistic review process.
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.
Our online Heidelberg application is open for undergraduate, graduate, international, transfer, and adult students.
First-year and Transfer students have the option to apply to Heidelberg through the Common Application.
I chose Heidelberg because of the connections I was able to create with faculty and staff. The opportunities were endless at Heidelberg, and I felt it was a place where I could be myself while finding my passions and creating a future.
Our students have different backgrounds, experiences, and career goals, but all are part of the Heidelberg family. Learn more about other ways to experience our educational offerings.
