All students are eligible for academic merit-based scholarships regardless of whether or not they choose to submit a test score.
Early Action: November 1
The Early Action program allows you to receive Luther's first admissions decisions (by November 15) and priority scholarship and financial aid consideration. Early Action is a non-binding admission process, which means you still won't need to finalize your decision until May 1. But if you're ready to make your final college decision early, you will have the complete information you need soon after sending in your application and submitting your FAFSA.
Following the Early Action deadline, Luther admits students on a rolling weekly basis, and will do so each week until the class is full. We recommend applying by November 15 for priority consideration, but we do accept applications later and will accept students if there is space in the class. We send acceptance notifications within 7–10 days after receiving your completed application.
Once we've received your application (including your essay, transcript, optional test scores and educator's reference), your file is complete. You can expect to hear from us within 7–10 days.
If you are accepted and decide to attend Luther, we require a $300 non-refundable enrollment deposit to hold your spot in the following year's class. Your deposit is due by May 1.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call 563-387-1287.
