Albright College Admission Policy
The mission of the Admission Office is to serve the College by striving to achieve our enrollment goals through enthusiastic communication, intense data analysis and integration of the campus community in the recruitment process. The office endeavors to perform our duties with dedication and high ethical standards, and adheres to Code of Ethics and Professional Practices put forward by the National Association of College Admissions Counselors (NACAC),
The Admission Office serves our external customers (prospective students, their parents, and the guidance community) by providing timely and accurate information, by personalizing the admission process for each applicant, and by making the admission procedures understandable and efficient.
It is the aim of the Admission Office to search, encourage and admit students who will most benefit from Albright’s mission and thrive in our academic community. High school academic GPA is used as the primary academic predictor for admission along with test scores when available (Albright is test-optional). Every applicant is considered individually using all the information available to us. Attributes we are seeking in a successful applicant are:
- proven academic ability and potential for academic growth
- motivation and preparation for the chosen area of study
- commitment to academic inquiry and self-discipline
Prospective students find information about Albright’s academic programs in the web-based catalog. The direct link to each program allows students to navigate easily between majors/departments. The general education curriculum page describes the goals and philosophy of a liberal arts education and clearly states Albright’s general education requirements.
Albright College is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and does not discriminate based on race, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual status, marital status or disability. This policy extends to all educational, service and employment programs of the College.
