Affordability

We understand. College costs can be daunting. But now more than ever, your college education is one of the most important investments your family can make.

Affordability is our goal, and we’re here to help families access all of the financial resources that are available. During the 2017-18 academic year, Albion awarded more than $36 million in scholarships and grants.

98% of our 2014 graduates earned their degree in four years or less. 92% of them reported that they were employed or in graduate school within six months. Compare this to many public universities, where 50% or less complete their degrees in four years.

Despite the assumption that liberal arts colleges are too expensive, our average federal student debt for 2016 graduates was $28,880, comparable to the national rate. Our default rate is only 3.5%, which is much lower than the national average of 10%. This means that almost 97% of our students achieve outcomes that make their debt manageable.
