We’re different. We’re just like you.
If you answered yes to all of the above, then Heritage wants you!
And even if you didn’t, we can help you figure out how college can fit into your life.
We aren’t influenced by arbitrary standards for grades, test scores, courses taken or academic achievements. That’s because getting into Heritage University as a freshman is more about where you are going than where you have been — and why our personalized assessment of your background will show how you can thrive at Heritage.
I knew I wanted to go to college and that I was capable, but I could not visualize myself there. I knew it took a lot of work and that it went against the cultural norms of my extended family. I thought, ‘I’m a girl. I don’t belong there. I can’t major in math.’ At Heritage, I went from being a little girl who did not believe she was ever going to college, to a confident young woman, aspiring to earn a Ph.D. and become a professor in mathematics, and the belief and confidence that I WILL accomplish it!
After high school, I enrolled at a community college. My experiences there reinforced my belief that college was for other people, not someone like me. I never felt like I fit in. I felt like I was a number. I didn’t even know the questions to ask to get the information I needed to be successful. I was very close to completely giving up on my dream and dropping out of college for good. It was a completely different experience when I transferred to Heritage. There, I felt like I was important and worthy of an education. They believed in me, even when I had a hard time believing in myself.
