Alma College

Alma, Michigan

4-year, Regionally accredited

Affiliation: Presbyterian Church

Degrees: Bachelor's

A traditional undergraduate 128-acre brick-and-mortar college located in the middle of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula (the “mitten”), Alma College is home to about 1,400 fulltime students, all under the age of 25.  At first glance an expensive college (listed cost to attend of $50K per year), prospective enrollees should dig deeper as it appears that everyone gets a grant or scholarship, or both, bringing the annual net cost to about $22K.  In our opinion, this makes Alma College worth a close look.

Bachelor programs in business, health, education, psychology, biology, fine arts and music are popular.  We noted a very low default rate on Alma College graduates’ student loans. This indicates Alma grads are both employed and conscientious, an endorsement of the college, its programs and its students’ maturity that we think is important.  The college does not offer online programs, the only shortcoming we observed.

The coed student population is diverse. Alma claims students from nine foreign countries and 27 states.  Almost 80% of first-year students return to Alma, an indication they like where they are.  Taking into account all the above, we urge prospective enrollees to consider Alma College.


What our Students are Saying...

"Alma College shaped my character, my knowledge and my experience of the world. My professors cared greatly about giving me the best education, challenging me and about being there to support me. The music faculty are still my mentors and role models to this day."

"Definitely worth the money. The classes were challenging... in a good way! And as I get farther and farther away from my time there... I miss it more. "

"Alma College works hard to make sure all the students are taken care of as best they can. The school works together in a harmony that I've never seen; bringing together Greek Life, academics, and everything else in between. "
