Owens Community College students with aspirations of pursuing a bachelor’s degree from Heidelberg University can now continue their academic pursuits while attending both academic institutions, thanks to a new Dual Admission Program partnership.

As a result of the collaboration, Owens students can complete academic coursework while simultaneously enrolled at the two schools.

The program allows Owens students to enroll in a maximum of three credit hours of coursework (four credit hours if a laboratory course) at Heidelberg University during the fall and spring semesters for a maximum of four semesters. Dual admission students can enroll in an array of courses at Heidelberg including general education and major specific courses required at both academic institutions. Coursework successfully completed through the program will transfer and be applied toward fulfilling degree requirements at both academic institutions.

In addition, the dual admission option provides Owens students with access to academic advising at Heidelberg. Individuals will also be issued a Heidelberg student ID, which will provide access to an array of Heidelberg services to include library privileges as well as campus events and activities.
