Admissions & Aid


Interested in becoming a part of the Alma College family? We make it easy with our free online applications. We’re always taking applications, so apply to be a Scot today!

We recommend that high school seniors apply during the fall of their senior year for maximum scholarship consideration.

We’re making our application process even easier!

The new first-year, transfer and international student applications provide better communication and quicker responses so you’ll know where you stand every step of the way.

When will I know if I’m accepted?

Usually, we are able to provide you with an admissions decision within two weeks. If you have questions about your application, please contact your admissions representative

Once a Scot, always a Scot

If you have previously attended Alma, please do not complete the online application for admission; instead, contact the Registrar’s Office at (989) 463-7348 for guidance.

Note: This does not apply to students who were dual enrolled at Alma during high school. You are considered a first-year student.
