Albright College Admission Policy – Albright College

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. Albright College recognizes the diversity of student learning styles. As part of our holistic approach to reviewing applications, and in commitment to providing access to a higher education to promising scholars, Albright does not require standardized test scores for making admission or scholarship decisions. We evaluate a student’s application with priority on the first three years of the high school classes. Decisions are released on a rolling basis, and all students are evaluated for a merit scholarship at time of admission. Students, regardless of decision date, have until May 1 to share their college home decision.

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.
