Our supportive financial aid office is dedicated to assisting you in finding additional sources of funding to help meet the costs of receiving a quality education.
The following steps help you apply for financial aid. We strongly recommend you complete these steps in the order in which they are listed.
- If you don't have one already, apply for a Department of Education PIN to be used as an online signature. Retain your PIN for use each year.
- Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Information from this application is used to determine if you're eligible to receive money from federal grant or loan programs. WLC's code is 014658.
- Complete any documents you receive from the financial aid office, which are mailed to you upon electronic receipt of your FAFSA.
Before an offer of financial aid is granted, Wisconsin Lutheran College requires your acceptance for admission. Your personal enrollment advisor simultaneously guides you through the financial aid and admission application process.
All federal loans are disbursed through the Federal Direct Loan program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education. You have the right to cancel or lower your loan at any time by contacting the WLC Financial Aid Office.
Applications and information on each loan type are available at the following link: Financial Aid: Loans.
Tuition charges are applied to your account at the beginning of each spring, summer, and fall term for which you are enrolled. Payment for the summer term is due at the beginning of the term. Payment for fall and spring terms can be made in two installments due at the beginning and approximately halfway through each term.
If desired, an online monthly payment plan is available through the college's myWLC student portal.
You are encouraged to research whether you qualify for an employee tuition reimbursement benefit. Many school districts provide reimbursement directly to employees after courses have been completed and credits have been earned. Making the maximum use of reimbursement plans can be an effective strategy for reducing college costs.
