Open Transfer

Congratulations on your Associate's Degree!

Have you already earned your associate’s of art or associate's of science degree? We’re excited for you! That’s an amazing accomplishment – and with that, you can take the next step in as few as 2 years.

Heidelberg transfer students with a pre-existing associate’s of arts or science from an accredited institution can finish their bachelor's degree in a similar area of study in only 60 credit hours, or a total of 120 credit hours. Accepted transfer students can have their transcript evaluated to ensure eligibility for the program. Students pursuing majors in Accounting or Finance should have completed Financial Accounting and Managerial Accounting completed to ensure their ability to complete the program in two years.

Some universities don’t give you credit for your existing degree, and require mountains of paperwork to prove yourself. But Heidelberg University honors the work you put in and will give you all the credit you’ve earned. We want to provide you with more opportunities to expand on that degree, without the barriers and red tape.

You already did the work, so now all you have to focus on is earning your bachelor’s degree.

YES! First-Time Transfer Students with an Associate's Degree are eligible for:

  • $20,000 Presidential Scholarship
  • $17,000 Dean's Scholarship
  • $15,000 Faculty Scholarship
  • $10,000 Academic Award

At Heidelberg University we believe students from all economic backgrounds should have the opportunity to invest in an education that will empower their future. Over 97% of Heidelberg students receive some form of financial assistance.

The Financial Aid Office provides financial assistance and related resources to help students and their families determine the best approach for covering the cost of their education. Financial aid is available based upon your need, determined by information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
