A completed application for admission (www.heritage.edu/apply)
- An essay or writing sample submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Graduate students submit a statement of purpose/expectation instead of the writing sample.
- A certified foreign credential evaluation report from high school or equivalent studies and from each college/university attended. These documents require a translated course-by-course evaluation in English.
A non-refundable application processing fee of $150.00 USD paid with a check or money order or with a credit card by phone at 509-865-8507.

- Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum score of 500 (173 computer based) for undergraduate and 550 (213 computer based) for graduate application.
- Transcript from a U.S. school verifying completion of an English as a Second Language (ESL) Program reflecting satisfactory progress.
High school or university instruction taught in English and verified by a transcript.
- Personal provision must be made for housing and transportation since Heritage University does not provide student housing and public transportation is not available in the area.
An I-20 form is issued only when all the above materials have been submitted, evaluated, and the student is admitted. This document authorizes the student to request proper visa to study at Heritage University. All international students meet with the Director of Admissions and their academic advisor upon arrival.
These requirements may change if required by U.S. federal authorities. Consult with the Office of Admissions for latest information.
