Parent Information

Welcome New Herzing University Parents

Welcome to Herzing University! We’re excited to have your family become a part of our family.

At Herzing University, we know that sending a child across the globe to attend school is an important, life-changing event. In addition to the financial commitment and physical separation, your son or daughter is taking the first steps toward independent adulthood.

That’s a lot of change all at once, so we offer programs and one-on-one support to ensure a smooth and safe transition for your son or daughter.

The staff at Herzing University is very familiar with the U.S. government F-1 visa process. We meet regularly with the consular officers. They know us personally and recognize that our students are high-quality, qualified F-1 applicants.

We assist our students in critical areas of the visa process such as demonstrating the intent to return to a home country upon study completion; the ability to finance school, transportation, and living expenses; and English language capability at a sufficiently high level for student success.

Herzing University professionals in student services can help in a variety of areas such as dietary, religious, or other cultural needs.

An Authentic American Experience

All Herzing University classes are integrated and include a variety of students from the United States and around the globe. International students and U.S. students learn, collaborate, and study together in every class.

One-on-One Assistance Anytime

At Herzing University, we pride ourselves on individualized attention and the personal touch. Our leadership, staff, and faculty will know your student by name and will do everything possible to support his or her success.

Additionally, once international students are accepted for enrollment—even prior to arrival in the United States—they are paired with a Herzing University on-campus, international student ambassador. The student ambassador is a knowledgeable, accessible Herzing University person who will provide one-on-one assistance with any questions, concerns, or needs your son or daughter might have.

Complete Your Degree in Three Years or Earn a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Four Years

While most U.S. universities have a two semester academic year, Herzing University has a three semester academic year. So, if you’d like to accelerate your bachelor’s degree completion to pursue your career or to save a year of U.S. living expenses, you can earn your degree in three years instead of four. Or, to help you take maximum advantage of your available study time in the U.S., Herzing University also offers an accelerated program where you can earn both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in four years total.

Gain Practical Work Experience Through OPT

Optional Practical Training [OPT] is U.S. work experience that Herzing University international students with F-1 status can gain for up to one year after completing their degrees, through the permission of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. If you are approved for this program, you can extend your student visa for one year while you gain valuable U.S. work experience.

Simple, Facilitated Admissions Process and Online Enrollment

At Herzing University, our admissions process is completed entirely online. The process is simple, and each international student is matched with a personal advisor for step-by-step assistance in submitting online all required documentation and information, including transcripts and diplomas. Once you are accepted into Herzing University, enrollment in your courses is also entirely online for maximum convenience.

Fast Acceptance and Three Start Dates Per Year

At Herzing University, we typically provide acceptance decisions within one week of receiving all required application materials.  Most other U.S. universities take much longer.  We also have three start dates each year for students to begin their Herzing University programs in the U.S. This helps students begin their studies in the U.S. as soon as possible.

Favorable Tuition and Fees

In the U.S., in-state tuition is the best available tuition rate. This is the tuition that a U.S. citizen residing in a given state pays to attend universities located in that state.

Herzing University’s tuition is very competitive, and it compares favorably to U.S. in-state tuition rates. This often makes Herzing University’s competitive tuition rate even more affordable than schools offering scholarships.
