Transfer Admission Requirements

Albion College students in a science class.

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

  • High school transcript if you haven't completed a full year of academic course work.

  • SAT or ACT scores: Required if you haven’t completed two full years of academic course work at an accredited institution.

  • Completion of the pdfIn Good Standing form is required
