New Students

Students entering Luther as freshmen or transferring to Luther from other colleges who wish to apply for financial assistance must:

Apply for admission to Luther College. A student's application for admission must be complete and he or she must be accepted by the Admissions Committee of the Luther faculty before any financial assistance notification is made.

Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the appropriate agency listed on the form as soon as possible after January 1 each year. Priority consideration is given to those applications mailed on or before March 1. Luther will still accept applications made after March 1, although late applicants may find fewer assistance options available. The sooner this form is filed, the better the possibilities for a student to receive financial assistance.
