Consider the Alma College Difference:

  • Our free, online application is accepted on a continuous basis or, apply through the Common Application

  • 1,400 undergraduate students from 27 states and nine foreign countries. We do not have large international student populations from one country; thus, you will forge American friendships while thriving in an intellectual, entrepreneurial environment

  • An average class size of 18, taught by experienced, world class faculty providing expert career advice and mentoring

  • 41 degree majors with a range of minors, several pre-professional programs, or an opportunity to create an individualized program

  • Generous scholarships available for well qualified international students

  • Nearly 100 clubs and organizations and a range of housing options amidst a safe, friendly campus and community

  • The Alma College Venture grant: offering every student up to $2,500 to support internships, research, or off-campus study (including overseas study)

  • IB Diploma graduates are awarded 32 Alma College credits toward degree completion, giving you a jumpstart on your education, saving time and money.  College credit also awarded for HL exams

  • Recognized by the Huffington Post as a “superpower,” our student team has won 37 “outstanding delegation” awards (21 consecutive years) at the prestigious National Model UN Conference in NYC – more than any other college/university in its 94-year history

  • Our campus is just two hours northwest of Detroit International Airport (DTW) that offers affordable, easy access to major U.S. cities
