Welcome to Albright College Financial Aid!
Our 100% Investment in Your Future
Beginning with the College’s Class of 2017 (students entering in 2013) Albright joined the small group of selective schools that meet 100% of institutionally determined financial need. We are proud to announce that this effort will continue for those students enrolling in 2015! For over 150 years Albright has worked to remain an affordable choice for exceptional students seeking a rigorous, interdisciplinary, private, liberal arts education. We believe the College’s decision to support 100% of financial need empowers families to choose Albright based on academic and extracurricular opportunities.
The College’s priority financial aid deadline for the 2015-2016 academic year is March 1, 2015. If your financial aid application is complete by March 1, 2015, your family can be assured that your admission will be supported by a financial aid award meeting 100% of your institutionally determined need.
Two financial aid applications are required to qualify for financial aid meeting 100% of determined need. The CSS / Financial Aid Profile and the Albright College Institutional Financial Aid Application become available on or around October 15 of any given year. Candidates for financial aid must complete one of the applications, either the Profile or the Institutional Financial Aid Application.
After January 1, 2015, all students, new and returning, should complete the 2015-16 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is your inroad to all sources of need-based financial aid including federal grants, state grants, federal loans, federal work study and Albright College need-based financial aid. The FAFSA is especially important for Pennsylvania residents. To be considered for the PHEAA State Grant Program, your FAFSA must be processed with PHEAA by May 1, 2015.
I certainly hope that you find this site helpful and informative. You should feel free to call on the aid staff at Albright at any time for comfort, support and guidance. We are now, and will remain, at your service.
