UHart Application Process

Applications for admission to the first-year class are considered on a "rolling basis" beginning in late September. Students may submit an application through the University’s applicant portal or through the Common Application. Official high school transcripts, SAT or ACT scores (optional but encouraged), and a letter of recommendation from either a high school teacher or counselor are required supporting documents.

See a complete list of admission requirements for first-year, traditional undergraduate students.

Student Visits

One of the most beneficial tools offered to high school students during their college search process is the campus tour.  By visiting our 350-acre campus surrounded by green spaces and wooded trails, students can get first-hand information from our current student tour guides, and a true sense of what makes us stand out.  Home to seven unique schools & colleges we encourage your students, their families, and you to come see what sets us apart!
