Albion Admissions Information

Albion College
Albion, MI (map)


Founded in 1835, Albion College has been a pioneer among the Midwestern colleges with a strong commitment to the liberal arts tradition. At Albion, classrooms are well-equipped and within tenured or tenure-track faculty members, all hold a Ph.D or equivalent in their field. Offering 31 academic majors and seven interdisciplinary concentrations, Albion has many educational choices for its students. Albion College awards two degrees: a Bachelor of Arts to most major fields and a Bachelor of Fine Arts to art and art history majors.

As a strictly undergraduate institution, Albion focuses on teaching students the value of service and community with centers that provide students with real-world experience. Among these include the Institute for Leadership in Public Policy and Service, the Institute for Business and Management, and the Center for Sustainability and the Environment–to name only a few. Because Albion does not have graduate students, all research opportunities and facilities are exclusively for the school’s undergraduates, with lots of support from faculty members.
