Students pay their tuition to Luther College as usual but do not pay Luther for room and board during that semester. Students normally pay LCWS directly for the housing (sometimes this is done through Luther if financial aid is involved). Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from Washington and for their food and incidental expenses while living in Washington.
Students pay a housing fee of $2600 ($2500 Housing and Program fee plus $100 refundable damage deposit). The $250 Nonrefundable Application Deposit/fee is subtracted from the total housing and program fee. It is recommended that students apply for a travel grant through LCWS.
