Kinds of Assistance

A student applying for assistance from Luther applies in general rather than for specific scholarships or grants; it is not necessary, therefore, for an applicant to apply for a specific kind of assistance from Luther. The various forms of assistance available are listed here for information only.

There are also forms of assistance which are not administered by Luther College. Students may refer to the Financial Aid section of the Luther College website,, for details on the kinds of assistance available.

Luther's financial assistance program includes scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time work on campus. Scholarships and grants are gift assistance and do not require repayment. Loans require repayment once the student is no longer attending college. Campus work wages may be credited to the student's account through the Work Credit Plan.

Twelve credits constitutes a full-time load for federal and state assistance.
