Admissions & Aid

Military & Veterans

Alma College is honored to serve those who have served. Recently Alma was named a “Military Friendly School” by GI Jobs.

At Alma, service members and veterans will enjoy individualized academic and admissions counseling, small class sizes, 40+ academic programs to choose among, and a commitment to career development. Our 93 percent placement rate in a career or graduate school attests to strength of the individualized education and applied learning experiences we offer.

To get started, apply to Alma free of charge online or through The Common Application and check out our Veteran and Active Duty Military checklist.

Your admissions representative, Anneliese Fox, will guide you through each step of the application, benefit and enrollment process.
