Transfer Admission Requirements
What it takes to be a Briton starts here.
Albion has a selective admission process because we have more qualified applicants than places in the entering class. Students are considered for admission based primarily on academic performance. We evaluate the following:
College academic program and GPA: Your courses and grades must be at least a 2.5 cummulative GPA
SAT or ACT scores: Required if you haven’t completed two full years of academic course work at an accredited institution.
