Heritage University is an accredited, private institution offering a wide array of academic programs and degrees. It is grounded in the belief that a college education should be accessible to anyone with the talent and drive to pursue a degree; regardless of economics, culture or geographic locations.

Students enjoy a world-class, multi-cultural education and personalized attention. Classes are small, averaging only 11 students in each class. Professors are skilled practitioners with ties deep in their respective fields.

Heritage University makes it possible to earn a college degree while continuing to live and work. Many undergraduate courses are offered during the evenings and graduate courses are offered on the weekends.

A degree from Heritage is a stepping stone to greater things. Our programs not only deliver the skills, techniques and knowledge needed to succeed in the workplace they also provide opportunities to gain real-world experience highly sought after by employers. Currently, you can choose from a wide variety of associate’s and bachelor’s degrees, as well as a master’s in the fields of education, administration, and counseling. We continue to grow our program offerings as our students’ needs evolve, such as our new Criminal Justice program.

With Heritage, you get all the benefits of a smaller institution, while having access to the larger programs and opportunities available to state universities. Our main campus is located in Toppenish, with five regional sites conveniently located throughout Washington.
