Embracing our Scottish heritage comes naturally. As you drive into the town of Alma, you’ll see a sign that says Scotland, U.S.A. We offer one of the best Highland Artsprograms in the country, drawing students from across the continent. Our instructors are U.S. and world champions in their fields and love sharing their passion for the Highland Arts with their students. 


We are committed to your success. That’s why we created the Alma Commitment, a promise between Alma College and its students. We pledge to provide you with the experiences and structures that will enable you to be well prepared upon graduating. 


Institutional Research seeks to provide data, reports, and analyses, that support institutional planning and decision-making, encourage the scholarship of teaching and learning, improve the curricular and co-curricular offerings, and effectively document the outcomes of a liberal arts education and the Alma Experience. 


Beginning six months after each year’s graduation date, the Alma College Center for Student Opportunity (CSO) surveys graduates to determine their career outcomes — whether they are working and/or attending graduate school. Of the total number of 2016 graduates who responded to the survey, 92% are either employed or enrolled in graduate school or other educational programs within six months of graduation.

Student services

The residential nature of Alma College is an important part of the educational experience. Through its facilities, staff and programs, Alma’s residential community seeks to provide a personal living and learning environment in which learning extends beyond the classroom and student activities and organizations provide opportunities for social interaction and personal growth. 

Housing services

Students learn from one another in a shared residential experience, therefore, more than 90% of Alma College students live in college-owned or approved housing. 

Library services

The library subscribes to more than one hundred databases that can provide you with the magazine, newspaper or scholarly articles you need. Our selection covers the full range of academic subjects and most contain full-text articles for immediate access.
