Albion College Admissions Overview:

Albion College accepts around 80% of students who apply--if you have a strong academic background and test scores within or above the average, you have a good chance of being accepted. In addition to looking at an applicant's GPA, test scores (either from the SAT or ACT; applicants do not have to submit both), and academic career, the school looks at extracurricular activities, an applicant's writing abilities, and letters of recommendation.

Applicants are encouraged to visit the campus and meet with an admissions counselor.
