What is the deadline for depositing at Alma?
The National Deposit Deadline is May 1, but many families make college decisions during the winter. We encourage you to deposit as soon as you’ve made up your mind because items like your preference for housing, your choice of Orientation Week course and your chances for obtaining a parking pass are tied to your date of deposit.
