Admissions & Aid

Visit Campus

If you’re interested in Alma College, come visit us! Talk to a professor. Attend a class. Eat lunch in Hamilton Commons. Tour our beautiful campus. We offer a variety of visit options and are excited to help plan your Alma experience.

Weekday Visits 

 Visiting during the week (almost any Monday through Friday) offers a personalized schedule and campus experience. Most weekday visits include meeting with an admissions representative, taking a tour of campus and enjoying a meal on us. You can also elect to meet with a faculty member or a coach, sit in on a class, attend a campus event or even stay overnight with one of our student hosts.

Students who are interested in nursing are also invited to attend one of our Nursing Information Sessions.

Saturday Visits 

Throughout the year, Explore Alma Days provide a glimpse into the Alma College experience in a small group setting. These events begin at 9:45 am and feature a session with faculty, current students and an admissions representative. A campus tour follows, and lunch concludes the day.

Additionally, we invite all Alma College Alumni and their children, siblings, and grandchildren of high school age to join us for a special Legacy Brunch during Homecoming. 

Open House Events

In addition to Explore Alma Days, we offer a variety of larger open house events on select Saturdays throughout the year. These events are tailored to fit your college search process. Find out more at our registration page.

Becoming a Scot Day

Becoming a Scot Day (BASD) is an orientation day for all incoming Alma College freshmen! Not only will you register for your fall classes, but you will also  learn more about fall move-in, the final steps of financial aid, have your student ID photo taken and meet other Scots in the Class of 2018!

Off Campus Events

On top of our many on-campus visit opportunities, we are also coming to you! This fall, we would love to have you join us in the Chicago area to meet one-on-one with your admissions representative. 

Out-of-State & UP Visitors

We know that many of you are traveling a considerable distance to visit campus. Your time and interest is greatly appreciated. We will financially assist you with lodging, food and travel expenses. Please contact your admissions representative for details.
