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 admision process. Students are required to submit a transcript and essay and are able to submit their ACT/SAT score and any other materials they feel represent them for our holistic review process.
Students who are still eligible for academic scholarship consideration, even without a test score. However, students who wish to be considered for our Scholars Day Competition or 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.
