Congratulations on your acceptance to Luther College!
When you are offered admission to Luther, a reply date is established for your final enrollment decision. If you are not applying for financial assistance, you should honor the reply date noted on your letter of acceptance. If you are receiving financial assistance, you should honor the reply date indicated on your award letter.
When you decide to attend Luther, you should submit a nonrefundable $300 enrollment deposit. You will receive a housing application after submitting the deposit. Housing at Luther is usually near capacity, so it is important to accept or decline your offer of admission by the reply date.
Students may earn college-level credit through a variety of programs while still in high school: Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO), College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), and Advanced Level Examinations (A-Levels).
Credits earned in such programs may fulfill Luther College distribution requirements, by approval of the registrar, and may fulfill requirements for a major, subject to approval of the appropriate department.
Students transferring credits in this manner should still plan to take Paideia, a two-semester integrated course in English and history required of all first-year students. Petitions for exceptions to any prescribed guidelines can be directed to the faculty committee on Admissions, Financial Assistance, and Academic Progress.
All students planning to enter with college credit are encouraged to fill out the Online Unofficial Review of College Courses form.
