This is when you get your calculator and figure it out.

For the 2020-21 academic year, 100 percent of Albion students are receiving financial aid. That turns a conversation about cost into a conversation about value. What is the value of an Albion education? What's the cost? You'll find our totals below. And you'll know our value by the success of our graduates.

Upon the students request the financial aid office can add computer costs to an individual's cost of attendance one time over their enrollment period at Albion. It is not Albion College policy to use institutional resources to fund this computer allowance, but the individual student may use federal aid and or outside scholarships to meet the computer allowance costs.

  • The standard cost adjustment for a computer purchase is limited to $2,500. The increase in cost of attendance of up to $2,500 will require appropriate documentation that the student or family has expended or will expend funds for the purchase or rental of the computer.
  • We do require final documentation of the purchase or rental in every case. The cost must have been incurred within six months of the request.
