Getting started

No matter where you are in your college decision-making process, we want to give you information you need to make a good decision about the colleges and universities of the ELCA.

Students on Campus LawnWhat makes the ELCA colleges distinctive?

  • We are student-focused.
  • We are liberal arts colleges.
  • We are residential colleges, where community is as important as studying.
  • We believe that there is more to college than academics.
  • Finally, we are Lutheran colleges (though many of our students are not Lutheran).

Together, we believe that this combination of values and attributes makes us unique in higher education. And our graduates agree.
