Financial Aid Info & Policies

Wisconsin Lutheran College provides full-time degree seeking students with financial assistance intended to supplement personal and family resources. Students applying for financial aid are considered for all programs for which they are eligible.

Financial aid available to students enrolled less than full time is noted below in the individual program descriptions. For financial aid purposes full-time student status is established as a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester; half-time status is a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester. The amount of financial aid offered is generally a combination of scholarships, grants, employment, and loans. It is based on the qualified financial need as determined primarily by the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA). 

Classification of Students

For loan eligibility purposes, a student is classified as a freshman if he or she meets the entrance requirements, as a sophomore when 27 credits have been earned, as a junior when 60 credits have been earned, and as a senior when 90 credits have been earned. 


Wisconsin Lutheran College does not discriminate against qualified individuals on the basis of race, color, disability, national or ethnic origin in its recruitment, admission, educational or administrative policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs. The college also is committed to admitting student athletes who will demonstrate a level of success consistent with that of all students on campus. Male and female student athletes will receive equal and fair treatment.
