Are you ready to experience the benefits of an Albright College education? Terrific! We make it easy to apply for admission:

Points to remember:

  • We encourage you to apply early in your senior year.
  • Admission to Albright is on a rolling, non-binding basis. This means that applications are reviewed shortly after all necessary documents have been received, and that you have until May 1 to inform us of your intent to enroll.
  • Need-based financial aid is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA becomes available on October 1 of your senior year. All applicants are encouraged to complete FAFSA application after October 1st in order to receive a financial aid award letter by the middle of November.

If you’re applying as a freshman, we need:

  • Your high school transcript
  • Your SAT or ACT score (optional)
    • The Test Optional Supplement form is available for applicants who feel their test scores are not reflective of academic ability and do not wish to include their test scores with their application. Students who plan to waive their standardized test scores should refer to the Standardized Test Waiver Policy below.

Albright College Standardized Test Waiver Policy

Albright College allows students the option of waiving their standardized test scores from review for Admission and for Scholarship.

  • Students can automatically waive their scores if:
    1. The student ranks in the top 20% of their high school class OR
    2. The student’s school does not rank and the student maintains a 3.3 GPA on a 4.0 scale (87 or better on a 100 point scale, or B+ letter grade)
  • If a student does not qualify for the automatic waiver, they can choose to waive their standardized test scores by:
    1. Submitting one of their own graded papers from work completed in the junior or senior year OR
    2. Completing an Admissions Interview as part of a visit to campus

We encourage the submission of the following:

  • An Essay, Writing Sample or Personal Statement
  • recommendation from a junior- or senior-year teacher who has taught you in English, mathematics, science, social studies or a foreign language. (Your teacher may either write a letter or use the form linked here.)
  • A completed secondary school report, filled out by your guidance counselor
