Admission Requirements for Veterans

What it takes to be a Briton.

Albion has a selective admission process because we have many more qualified applicants than spaces in the class. Students are considered for admission based primarily on academic performance. For military members who have not completed college course work, we evaluate the following:

  • Your high school courses and GPA: we’ll look for AP, IB and Honors courses, the number of courses taken in each academic area, and the grades you received.

  • Your scores on either the SAT or ACT -  it is not necessary to take both.

  • Your extracurricular activities: Tell us what you do outside the classroom—athletics, music, theatre, community service, clubs, organizations, and so on.

  • Your School Report and letter of recommendation: We’re anxious to hear what your school has to say about you as a good fit for Albion. Your letter of recommendation may come from your commanding officer, an employer or current supervisor.


Military veterans who have completed one full semester of transferrable academic credits at an accredited institution prior to enrolling at Albion will need to provide the following information:

  • 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.

  • What do you hope to accomplish at Albion?  Tell us about why you want to transfer.
