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.
Students are still eligible for academic scholarship consideration, even without a test score. However, students who wish to be considered for the Heidelberg Honors Program must submit standardized test scores or an essay with a specific prompt. Additionally, some academic majors may request a standardized test score for accreditation purposes after an admission decision is made.
On our online application there is a simple yes/no option asking you if you want to apply without test scores.
