    Wisconsin Lutheran College offers various clubs and organizations for you depending on your interests.

    There are also intercollegiate and intramural opportunities for men and women. The Warriors compete in NCAA Division III and members of the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference. To determine your eligibility status, you should contact Skip Noon, Athletic Director, at 414.443.8871.



    Maintaining a sense of campus community is important to us, so if you do not live with your family, you are required to live in college residence halls. Students are offered a variety of housing styles including on-campus, furnished apartments. If you live with your family, you may commute from home. If you have been out of high school for more than three years, you may live off campus. Appeals to these policies can be made through the Vice President of Student Life.


    After you have applied for admission and have arranged for your college transcripts to be sent to WLC, our registrar will evaluate your transcripts to determine which credits will transfer, thereby determining your class status. A student must have finished a class with a "C" or better for it to be considered for transfer credit.


    Prior to admissions, Wisconsin Lutheran College requests that you turn in your free online application, college transcript, final high school transcript, and your ACT score (if you are transferring in less than 30 credits). You must also be allowed back at your previous school in good standing.
