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 provide a test optional admission option for students who do not feel that their ACT/SAT score is reflective of their academic ability.
Students who apply test optional are still eligible for academic scholarship consideration. However, students who wish to be considered for our Scholars Day Competition or the Heidelberg Honors Program must submit standardized test scores. Additionally, some academic majors may request a standardized test score for accreditation purposes after an admission decision is made.
