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:

  • Your school official (counselor, teacher, principal, etc.) uploads the transcripts to the Common App

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. A completed sample form (PDF file) can be viewed via this link: Sample Educational History Form


Constructor 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/ACT) may be required for enrollment, if your high school diploma does not grant you direct admission to a university in Germany. Students who graduate with the German Abitur do not need to submit standardized test scores to Constructor University.  If you do not submit a standardized test, your application will be considered on the basis of the personal essay, letters of recommendation, academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and the way students presented themselves through the application process.

If your admission is conditional on having to take the SAT/ACT, we recommend you take the test before arrival. However, you will also have the option to take it on campus (October and/or December) during the first semester. For those who enroll without SAT and ACT and are to take it on campus, we may also offer complementary test preparation.

The following tests are accepted:
  • Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT): this test consists of two sections: Mathematics and Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, plus an optional Essay. Constructor 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.
  • American College Testing (ACT): this test consists of four sections: English, Reading, Math, and Science, as well as an optional writing test. Constructor 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.

Applicants can send proof of their standardized test scores via the official agencies. Alternatively, applicants could send us certified paper copies via regular post to the following mailing address:
Jacobs University Bremen
Office of Undergraduate Admission
Campus Ring 1

At Constructor University, we want to get to know you better as an applicant through a personal essay and some university specific questions. You will find questions such as “What do you find interesting?” and “Why Constructor University?” in the “My Colleges Writing” section of the Common App.

We have partnered with ZeeMee, a free service which lets you easily add personalized items including short videos, photos and/or documents to your application. Through the ZeeMee platform, you can digitally showcase your interests, accomplishments, and challenges you have overcome both inside and outside the classroom.
Please include a statement on why you want to study online in your motivation letter.

To begin, just create a profile on the free ZeeMee app for iOS or Android and paste your ZeeMee profile link into the designated field in the 'Questions' section of the Common App under the 'Activities' subsection. Please note that submitting a ZeeMee profile is completely optional, but a fun way to set yourself apart and share your story with us.

A recommendation letter is optional. This should ideally come from a school official, such as a teacher, career/guidance counselor, head of school or principal.
