A Letter to Prospective Students...

Albright believes that students should make their enrollment decisions based on the quality of our academic opportunities, and on the warmth and friendliness of the Albright Community, and not on finances.

Our substantial program of financial aid provides assistance to eligible students through grants, loans, and partnership scholarships. These programs are funded through the College, the federal government, and state government.

If you feel that your family will be unable to meet the cost of an Albright education with family resources alone, you should apply for financial aid. Financial aid is awarded to students based on their family's demonstrated financial need. Students who receive partnership scholarships are also eligible for financial aid. At some colleges, admission decisions are influenced by whether an applicant applies for financial aid. Albright's admission decisions are independent of requests for financial aid.

To apply for financial aid from Albright, you must complete only one form -- the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You will provide information about your family's income and assets on the form, which you will then send to the U.S. Department of Education. A formula set by the Federal Government is applied to these figures to determine your family's financial strength and calculate the amount your family can contribute annually toward your educational expenses. This information is sent to you and to each college you designate to receive the information.

You may obtain a FAFSA over the internet at www.fafsa.ed.gov. In order to qualify for the full range of financial aid programs, we recommend that students complete the FAFSA by March 1.

When you complete the FAFSA, be sure to indicate that the form be sent to Albright College, code number 003229.

NOTE: Students who complete an associate degree from one of Albright College’s partner community colleges will receive a partnership scholarship ranging from $2,500-$3,200 that will be distributed over the 16 courses in the Degree Completion Program.
