Career-focused, convenient, and caring — these ideas define an education from Herzing University. We offer personalization and support to help you earn your degree and advance your career. Our innovative career programs provide flexible learning options and convenient scheduling for busy students with campuses in eight U.S. states. We have a variety of academic offerings to meet students wherever they are in life, including undergraduate, graduate, online, and continuing education programs.

We’ve built up a supportive community of faculty, staff, and fellow learners. Founded in 1965 by Henry and Suzanne Herzing, we continue the family legacy with their daughter, Renée Herzing, as our president. Under her leadership, Herzing is the only accredited, private, woman-owned university in the U.S. and is WBE certified by the National Women Business Owners Corporation. We are also, once again, recognized as a member of the GI Jobs’ list of “Military Friendly Schools” for 2013.

Moving forward, we will remain focused on providing students with a caring learning environment that fosters long-term career success. Discover for yourself why students choose Herzing University every year.

Herzing University admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.


Every student attending Herzing University works with a Student Advisor whose sole responsibility is to help him/her be the best student possible in order to properly prepare for an exciting career. The Student Advisor is the first point of contact for any issues or problems that interfere with the students ability to be successful in school, and is ready to direct the student to the appropriate resources on educational and personal issues such as:

  • University services
  • Academic preparation
  • Attendance and participation guidelines
  • Time management strategies
  • Personal issues
  • Disability accommodation
  • Stress/anxiety
  • Course test-out exams and exemption credits

Registrars Office and Course Scheduling

Students attend Herzing University to get trained for a career. To help our students transition into a career as quickly as possible, the Registrars Office completes a schedule for the entire program of study as soon as a student is accepted, ensuring each student gets the courses required in order to graduate on time. In addition, the Registrars may be able to create a custom schedule based on a students desire to carry a lighter course load, or to speed up a program in order to graduate as soon as possible (for example, complete a Bachelor's Degree in 3 years).

Special Accommodations

Should you require any special accommodations due to disability or injury, please let your Admissions Advisor know prior to submitting your admissions application. Our accommodations specialist will then confidentially work with you regarding your needs. This early attention will help ensure everything is in place prior to your first day of class.
