  • Financial Aid

    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 Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID to be used as an online signature. Retain your FSA ID 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 emailed 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.

    Wisconsin Lutheran College created a website to guide you through the loan 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 anytime by contacting the Office of Financial Aid.


    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.
