Scholarships and Expenses

International students attending Albion College are eligible for scholarships.

Meaningful investments will build a life of purpose.

Living in residence halls allows you to meet more people and lets you get more work done. There are study areas you can use, and if all that is distracting, you have a million other places to go study.

Albion College International Scholarships

International students who meet or exceed the minimum requirements for admission will be awarded academic scholarships. In determining scholarships, we look at a student's overall application, academic achievement and potential for success at Albion College. Scholarships are also available to recognize fine arts talent; students must submit an audition or portfolio for review after admission.

We have many more qualified international applicants than we can support though our financial aid awards. In general, families must be able to contribute most of the cost attendance from sources outside of Albion College.

International Scholarship

All admitted students are eligible for awards covering 40-60% of expenses, awarded upon admission based on the information provided in the application.

Estimated Cost for International Students

Before you apply to Albion College, it's important to review our costs and make a family financial plan. We require the Financial Planning Worksheet as part of your application, and you should discuss this form with those who will support your studies. Once you are admitted, you will be required to submit a detailed Statement of Financial Support to document your available funding.

Albion has opened my mind to things that I would not have learned otherwise; from the city of Albion to the homemade solar panels in Israel and everything in between. With every class and extracurricular activity that I do, I find myself expanding my horizons.
