If you are moving off campus, discontinuing your meal plan, or withdrawing from Alma College, it is your responsibility to understand the impact to your financial aid.
Living off campus while attending Alma College will result in a 25% reduction in your Alma College financial aid (up to $5,000), but you will still receive 100% of your Federal financial aid. Removing your meal plan from your bill will result in a 10% reduction in your Alma College financial aid, but you will still receive 100% of your Federal financial aid.
