Alma College offers over 50 academic programs including a wide selection of majors, minors and several pre-professional courses of study. The Alma Commitment guarantees that you can complete a standard 136-credit major in four years or we will cover your tuition for an extra term in the fifth year.
We educate for careers and for life.
With small classes and a 12-1 student to teacher ratio, Alma College provides guidance and focus that prepares students not just for a career, but for life.
What you learn in the classroom truly comes to life through experiential learning, including internships, study abroad, research fellowships and many other options. We are so committed to this concept that we promise every student up to $2,500 to support an experiential learning opportunity, funded through the Venture Grant program or other college-sponsored grant programs. What amazing experience will you pursue?
You’ll move on to greater things, too. Ninety percent of all Alma College graduates report working in full-time positions or attending graduate school within six months of graduation.
