Application Documents


Please submit the following supporting documents along with your application:

  1. Recommendation letter: One recommendation letter is required. This should ideally come from a school official, such as a teacher, career/guidance counselor, head of school or principal.
    NOTE: You will need to invite your recommender via the Common App by providing his or her e-mail address. Your recommender will then receive an e-mail with a Common App link to complete the online recommendation.
  2. Official or certified copies of high school  transcripts: First year applicants (applying straight out of high school) will need to submit transcripts for the last 2-3 years of high school. Transcripts can be submitted to the undergraduate admissions office via these three options:
    1. Your school official (counselor, teacher, principal, etc.) uploads the transcripts to the Common App.
    2. E-transcripts issued by official digital credential services (e.g. parchment).
    3. You send certified copies of your transcripts to us by post using the following mailing address:
      Jacobs University Bremen
      Office of Undergraduate Admission
      Campus Ring 1
      28759 Bremen
      Germany
  3. Educational history  form: In the 'Questions' section of the Common App, you will be required to complete the 'Additional High School Information' sub-section. Here you will need to upload an Educational History Form where you will list all the schools that you have attended up to your current school.
  4. Standardized testing (SAT, ACT):* Jacobs University does not require SAT/ACT for admission evaluation for the Fall 22 intake. Applicants can choose to complete their application without SAT/ACT. If admitted, standardized testing (SAT or ACT) may be required for enrollment, if your high school diploma does not conform to the requirements set by the German government. Students who graduate with the German Abitur do not need to submit standardized test scores to Jacobs University. Most applicants are required to submit SAT/ACT scores in order to be eligible for admission to Jacobs University. A small percentage of applicants are exempted from this requirement depending on high school subject combination and expected/earned high school diploma type. Please check with the university undergraduate admissions office [email protected], and make sure to mention the type of diploma you will receive/have received, and the subjects you have/will have completed in your final year of high school to find out if you are eligible for a Standardized Test Waiver.
    The following tests are accepted:
    1. Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT): This test consists of two sections: Mathematics and Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, plus an optional Essay. Jacobs University does not require the optional writing section. Each section is scored on a 200 to 800 point scale, making a perfect score of 1600.
    2. American College Testing (ACT): This test consists of four sections: English, Reading, Math, and Science, as well as an optional writing test. Jacobs University does not require the writing test offered by the ACT. Each section is scored on a 1 to 36 point scale. The composite ACT score is the average score of all the four sections of the test.
  5. Language proficiency test (see language requirements). For those who require English proficiency tests, you can submit your test score in the testing section of the Common App. Proof of the English proficiency test results can be sent via the official agencies. Alternatively, applicants could send certified paper copies via regular post to:
