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. 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 eager to hear what your school has to say about you as a good fit for Albion.
Your application essay: We're interested to see how you write and how you think.
Admission interview: One of the best ways to help the Admission Committee learn about you as an individual (beyond your formal application) is to visit campus and interview with an admission counselor.
