Message From The President
Theodore B. Olsen
"The Lord's mercies are new every morning." That is no more evident any place than at Martin Luther College, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod's college of ministry. The faculty and student body of MLC invite you to write for information or pay us a visit to see just how abundantly the Lord has blessed his college of ministry. At MLC you are offered the opportunity to study for pastoral ministry or early childhood education ministry or elementary educational ministry or secondary education ministry or staff ministry. MLC has been blessed with a dedicated and competent faculty to assist you in remaining focused on ministry and to aid you in the rigorous demands of a ministry curriculum culminating in either a Bachelor of Arts degree or a Bachelor of Science degree in education. Faculty and student body walk together in harmony, work together in peace, and strive for the same objectives because of our common bond offaith in Christ Jesus. The goal is to proclaim salvation by God's grace through faith in Christ. This makes MLC a wonderful place to work and play. In the future nearly every pastor, teacher, and staff minister will have attended MLC. All synodical roads lead to and emanate from Martin Luther College. Perhaps you should consider the marvelous privilege of serving in the gospel ministry. We would be happy to hear from you. May our gracious Lord bless you and yours in Christ Jesus!

of Martin Luther College
Martin Luther College, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) college of ministry, exists to • serve the pastoral needs of the WELS by assisting in the preparation of a preaching ministry and • prepare men and women for service as teacher ministers in WELS schools or as staff ministers in WELS parishes or for other church-related service who are qualified and competent to proclaim the Word of God faithfully, effectively, and universally in accord with the Lutheran Confessions. OB,JECTlVES
To carry out this assignment of the WELS, Martin Luther College imparts all instruction and has a program of student life under the influence of the Gospel and in accord with the inerrant Word of God. Through its programs the college desires to • • • • •
strengthen the student in a consecrated spirit of love for God and his Word educate the whole person for faithful, capable, intelligent citizenship in today's world give the student opportunity for academic specialization for personal experience, enjoyment, and wider service in the Christian ministry equip the student with professional skills and practical training that will provide competence for communicating the truths and virtues needed for service in the church assist the student in developing the understandings, attitudes, and skills that are essential for meeting the worship needs of the congregations of the WELS
lMi§ti'm§1 Consistent with its mission and objectives, Martin Luther College • offers courses of study which qualify men for entrance into Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, where they will continue their preparation for the pastoral ministry of the WELS • offers courses of study for the preparation of qualified educators for the teaching ministry in the preschools and elementary and secondary schools of the WELS • offers courses of study for the preparation of qualified staff ministers for the congregations of the WELS • awards appropriate degrees, certificates, and diplomas to those who successfully complete the prescribed courses of study • provides programs of inservice and continuing education for teachers and staff ministers of the WELS • cooperates with Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary to provide inservice and continuing education for pastors of the WELS under the auspices and direction of the seminary
Student Life LIFE IN CHRIST Common to all Christian students is the internal struggle between the saint and the sinner. The new self offaith wants to love God and people perfectly. The old self of the sinful nature actively hates what is good and is completely selfish. The Law must uncover that sinful selfishness and the Gospel will cover and heal consciences with the forgiveness of Christ. Moreover, God's
gracious forgiveness provides the power for godly living, striving and maturing. When over 900 people share close quarters on this campus, opportunity for sin to intrude on our relationships. But God the Holy Spirit uses his Word on our campus to lift our heads toward Christ in repentance and faith, and to turn our heads toward others in love and consideration.
CLASS ATTENDANCE Martin Luther College expects students to attend their classes. The public ministry requires faithfulness, and regular class attendance is one training ground for that important requirement. Illness and emergency, of course, may necessitate absence from class. The academic calendar specifies when classes are in session. Students and their parents and families will respect the academic calendar, particularly when making travel arrangements and vacation plans. Families - please
schedule any travel plans around class schedules. Don't take students out of class! WORSHIP Martin Luther College plans its day around the worship of our Lord. Morning and evening chapel services
provide our campus family with every opportunity to gather together around the Word, to sing, to pray, and to praise God. Students are also encouraged to attend worship services at one of the area WELS congregations.
MARRIAGE Students notify the Vice President for Student Life when they are making plans for a marriage that will take place before graduation from Martin Luther College or prior to enrollment at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. The campus pastor then counsels with these students.
HOUSING Unmarried students live with a roommate in one of the five residence halls operated by the college. Married students arrange their own housing. Single students who are four or more years out of high school may request an exemption from dormitory living, but the Vice President for Student Life will make decisions regarding such requests. In general, college policy is that students live in the dormitory. The college provides a bed, mattress, desk, chair, dresser, and wardrobe for each dormitory resident. Rooms are equipped with a phone jack, cable access, and a campus computer network connection. Students provide towels, bed linens and blankets, phone, and study lamps. Appliances and extra furniture may be brought into the dormitories with the approval of the dormitory supervisor. Some items require a fee and/or a deposit. It is wise to check about extra items before bringing them to campus.
MEALS Dormitory residents are served meals in the cafeteria on the lower level of the Luther Student Center. Off-campus students may purchase meals in the cafeteria.
VACATIONS Dormitories and the cafeteria open the weekend before the first class in fall and close on graduation day in spring. Both are closed during the Christmas and spring breaks. There are no meals served during the Thanksgiving and Easter recesses, but the dormitories remain open. Students are encouraged to travel home during these two holiday recesses. Those who live farther from home are encouraged to spend the break at the home of a friend. (Special circumstances may necessitate the closing of dormitories during the Thanksgiving and Easter breaks.)
FINANCIAL SERVICES Martin Luther College operates an automatic teller machine on campus. The ATM permits withdrawals, but no deposits. The school's receptionist cashes personal checks (up to $20 per day). Selected local banks cash personal checks for students who present proper identification.
HEALTH SERVICES New students submit a physician's health evaluation and a profile of medical history on forms provided them by the college. Proof of immunization (DiphtheriaiTetanus within the past 10 years, MMR, and Polio) is a legal requirement for campus residency. A registered nurse on our staff meets the routine health needs of students. She holds regular hours on-campus each 16
school day. New DIm has a regional hospital and competent physicians in most fields. A student is responsible for the costs of off-campus care. In today's world this means carrying major medical insurance or being prepared to meet emergency medical costs should they occur. Martin Luther College carries accidental injury insurance to supplement a student's own primary coverage. Interscholastic athletes at Martin Luther College fall under the protection of NCAA coverage for catastrophic injury. Those competing in interscholastic athletics must update their health records with a physical exam prior to their junior year.
CAMPDSLIVING Martin Luther College issues a handbook that contains campus regulations and guidelines. By enrolling, each student declares his willingness to abide by both the letter and the spirit of these common-sense regulations. Christian principle and courtesy form the necessary framework for day-to-day living on campus. The college administration and elected student representatives work together to keep guidelines up-to-date and relevant. Fines are levied and other penalties imposed when regulations are broken. In all cases, however, the goal of the administration and student leadership is to promote peace and harmony and loving concern for others. The Holy Spirit will work through the Word to make each believer more like Christ. When growth in Christian life is not apparent, or when behavior calls into question a person's fitness for public ministry, a student may be asked to leave school. Campus regulations reflect the concerns of our civil government. The Martin Luther College Board of Control
Student has declared ours to be a drug- and alcohol-freecampus. Martin Luther Collegehas also established procedures to deal with sexual harassment. STUDENT GOVERNMENT Each class selects its own officersand elects delegates to the Student Senate. Each of the five residence halls has a dormitory councilelected by its own residents. The Student Senate is the student body'svoicein matters affecting the entire student body.Class officersattend to the specificconcerns of each class. Dormitory councils address concerns of residential living. ACADEMIC COUNSELING Each student is assigned a faculty member as an academic advisor. The advisor charts the path to graduation. The advisor tracks academic progress, helps the student make appropriate course choices,and may also offer personal counseling or steer the student to someoneserving as a nonacademic counselor. NON-ACADEMIC COUNSELING Students who serve as resident assistants provide peer counseling. There is one resident assistant on each flooror wing of a dormitory.Each dormitory has an adult resident supervisor to whom a student may also turn. The VicePresident for Student Life handles the weightier concerns. The Martin Luther Collegecampus pastor offersconfidential spiritual counseling. Students may also be referred to a regional officeof the WisconsinLutheran Child and Family Service located in New VIm.
MOTOR VEmCLES A student may bring a motor vehicle to campus under the followingconditions. The vehicle must carry liability insurance. It needs to be safe. It must be kept in operating condition throughout the year. It must be registered with the Student Life office. It must be parked on campus at a fee ranging from $35 to $60 per year. Parking on streets adjacent to campus is prohibited as a courtesy to our residential neighbors. Students who bring a vehicle agree to abide by motor vehicle regulations set by the college and the government. ORIENTATION AND REGISTRATION Current students register for classes prior to the end of each schoolyear. New students and incomingfreshmen will be pre-registered before the beginning of the schoolyear. The collegewelcomesnew students and their parents to a weekend of orientation at the beginning of the first semester. Such things as room and roommate selection, car registration, parking, financial aid, and the initial payment offees are handled by mail prior to orientation and/or registration. Students should therefore supply the collegewith a correct summer address. OFF-CAMPUS LIFE The community of New VIm offers a variety of part-time jobs to our students. Employment opportunities are posted regularly in the Luther Student Center in cooperationwith Minnesota Job Service. Students may shop for personal needs in New VIm, nearby Mankato, or the Twin Cities. All three areas sponsor cultural and recreational opportunities.
Student Life HANDICAPACCESSIBILITY Although most campus buildings were built prior to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, attempts are made to assist students and other personnel who have disabilities. There are ground-level entrances to the Wittenberg Collegiate Center, the Library building and the Gymnasium. The Library, WCC, Old Main, and AugustanalConcord dormitories are served by elevators. Every attempt is made to eliminate any disadvantages and create a sensitive learning environment for all students with disabilities.

8. INCIDENTAL CHARGES Parking tickets, fines for dormitory infractions or past-due library books, and charges for the damage of school property are due immediately. 9. PAYMENTPOLICIES Students pay the costs of attending school through a combination of scholarships, grants, credits for having attended a synodical preparatory school, school-arranged loans, private funds, privately-arranged loans, work-study programs, and jobs. It is the student's responsibility to meet his or her obligation to the school by
developing a plan prior to each semester. Counselors and Financial Services personnel (which includes Financial Aid) offer help to students who seek assistance. 25
Costs The College sends monthly financial statements to students. For a $20 fee a student may elect to have a duplicate copy of the financial statement sent to parents or guardians. The school observes federal laws regarding confidentiality by sending statements to students or persons designated by them.
Basic Payment Policy The Synodical Council and the Board for Ministerial Education of the WELS have established the policy that charges be paid in advance and in full. All fees are due with initial payment. Board, room, and tuition may be paid yearly, by semester, or monthly.
SemesterlYearly Payment Plan There is a 2% discount on board, room, and tuition if paid in advance for the first semester. The discount is 3% if paid in advance for the entire year.
Monthly Payment Plan Board, room, and tuition may be paid in equal monthly payments starting in July. Remaining payments are due upon receipt of the statement sent out on the first day of the month, and become past due on the first day of the next month. Payments may vary depending on the account balance, which will be reflected on the statement. Scholarships, grants, credits, or school-arranged loans may not be "front-loaded" to cover books, one-time fees, annual fees, or special course fees.
Delinquent Accounts A student who fails to make a monthly payment prior to the first day of the month is expected to notify Financial Services immediately. Late payments incur a $10 processing charge. Loans may be available through Financial Aid. Failure to make satisfactory arrangements may result in a suspension of enrollment on the first day of the next month. In cases of emergency, Financial Services may work out a special schedule of payments. No student will be admitted for a new semester with a balance due. No transfer of credits or final grade reports will be issued as long as a student's account is in arrears. Students with a balance due who need a transcript may need to arrange a private loan to payoff an account.
Refunds Charges for board, room, and tuition are computed on a per diem basis when a student withdraws or is asked to discontinue. Other fees are refunded by half semester or semester. A $25 severance fee is charged for early termination of enrollment. A portion of any refund may be used to repay financial aid programs.
Costs Students who withdraw during the first thirty days of a semester will not receive any financial aid which is administered by Martin Luther College. Questions Questions with regard to payment policies or procedures should be directed to Martin Luther College Financial Services before payments are due. Call (507) 354-8221.
A decision to enroll at Martin Luther College involves not only a commitment of time and money but also a willingness to serve one's Lord in an area of Christian ministry. To help students reach that goal of Christian ministry, Martin Luther College maintains a comprehensive financial aid program.
A FAMILY RESPONSIBILITY A basic assumption in financial aid is that paying for a college education is primarily the responsibility of the student and his or her family. However, no one should be denied the opportunity for Christian ministry because of a lack of financial resources.
SYNOD SUBSIDY To keep costs as low as possible the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod provides a generous subsidy to operating costs. Thus total costs are much less than at other private colleges and comparable to state-supported institutions. Though it is not listed on a statement or on a financial aid award letter, each student in effect receives financial aid of some $4,000.
BASED ON NEED Most financial aid may be described as need-based, meaning that a student's family financial resources are considered. This requires a need analysis (see under Application below). Allowances are made for family size, for other family members in college, and for special expenses and circumstances. The need analysis may not be a perfect measure of a family's ability to pay, but it does serve to compare students' resources and helps to distribute financial aid equitably. Need as it relates to financial aid does not necessarily mean needy. Many students qualify for some form of need-
based aid. It is important to apply. In the 1997-1998 academic year, 67% of the students at Martin Luther College received aid which depended on the results of the need analysis. Over 88% of the students received some form of financial aid. Martin Luther College also offers special scholarships not based on need. These are based on academic achievement or other academic criteria and are awarded to both entering high school graduates and continuing students.
SOURCES AND TYPES OF FINANCIAL AID Martin Luther College uses its own funds and also makes use of government programs to supply monetary grants to students. Student and parent loans as well as employment are also available.

The instructor records each student's absences and files a weekly absence report. Students receive the complete attendance policy in the Knight's Daybook, the student handbook.
GRADE POINT AVERAGE AND ELIGIBILITY 1.
The following are the minimum semester and cumulative grade point averages necessary to be a student in good standing. Sem. I - 1.70 Sem. II - 1.80 Sem. III - 1.90 Sem. IVff - 2.00 A student on probation must become a student in good standing by the end of the next semester of attendance. If the student fails to gain this status, the student will be required to withdraw. Application for readmittance will be considered after a lapse of one semester. (A student required to withdraw at the end of the second semester is ineligible to attend the subsequent summer session.) A student on probation shall discuss with hislher advisor the desirability of reducing the student's course load as an aid in regaining good standing. If the course load is reduced, consultation between the student and advisor and the advice of the registrar will determine the course(s) to be dropped. In the interest of the student as well as in the interest of maintaining proper academic standards, a student on probation shall also discuss with hislher advisor the extent of extracurricular activities and outside employment. Credits and grade points earned in residence during a summer session are added to those earned during the last semester of the student's attendance. They may apply toward the removal of an academic probation status. Eligibility for extracurricular activities requires the minimum grade point average (GPA) for a student in good standing. As stated in No.1 above, the required GPAis the same for both the semester and the cumulative. A list of 33
Martin Luther College activities which require eligibility appears in the Knight's Daybook. An entering special student or freshman who is a high school graduate with no previous full-time college attendance shall be considered eligible provided that the student meets the following two academic requirements: a. The entering student has a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00 in a high school curriculum which offers at least 12 academic courses in the subject areas prescribed in the entrance requirements. b. The entering student has a minimum composite score of 18 on the ACT assessment. An entering special student or freshman who does not meet these requirements shall remain ineligible until the student's semester and cumulative grade point averages at Martin Luther College establish eligibility. A transfer student who has been enrolled in a full-time academic program at another college or university for one or more semesters enters Martin Luther College with the academic standing the student had when he/she withdrew from the previous school. A student who withdrew from a previous school on academic probation remains on probation and is ineligible at Martin Luther College until the student's semester and cumulative grade point averages at Martin Luther College establish the student's eligibility. To be eligible for financial aid a student must be in good standing based on his or her cumulative grade point average for the previous semester or summer session. Details may be found in a special financial aid eligibility pamphlet.
GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL DEGREES 1. 2. 3. 4.
The final thirty semester hours of credit must be earned in residence at Martin Luther College. A minimum cumulative average of 2.00 for the total number of courses taken in residence is required.

Graduates recommended by the faculty for assignment to the Christian ministry have also met the teacher certification requirements of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Though Martin Luther College is accredited as a baccalaureate degree-granting institution by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, this degree does not qualify its graduates for state teaching certification without some additional course work. Students who satisfactorily complete the Studies in Pastoral Ministry curriculum are graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts. Students enrolled in the Seminary Certification Program who satisfactorily complete their prescribed course of study are graduated with a certificate. Graduates in Studies in Pastoral Ministry who have demonstrated an aptitude for continuing their preparation for the pastoral ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod are recommended for enrollment at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary.

FOR ALL STUDENTS Because the college considers the ability to express oneself clearly, correctly, and responsibly in writing to be a necessity for college work and a characteristic of the competent, qualified Christian minister, it strives to teach and maintain good writing practices. In keeping with this policy, all students must attain a passing grade in a college composition course. Students are advised that grades on poorly written papers, regardless of the course, may be reduced because of the quality of the writing; in extreme cases, a failing grade may be given for this reason. MIDTERM
All first-year students classified as Specials and Freshmen receive midterm reports.
The following statements on graduation rate are in compliance with the Student Right-to-Know and the Campus Security Act as amended by Public Law 102-26.

Course Listing for Studies in Pastoral Ministry SEMINARY CERTIFICATION
'4itJ4'ma The purpose of the Seminary Certification Program at Martin Luther College is to provide another avenue for men who are older than traditional college students to prepare for the pastoral ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).
tR'g" The goal of Martin Luther College is to recommend to Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary a continuing number of men who have evidenced a sufficient measure of spiritual, academic, and personal attributes to continue preparation for the pastoral ministry of the WELS. OBJECTIVES To carry out this program, MLC â€˘
accepts into the Seminary Certification Program qualified men who express a desire to serve in the WELS pastoral ministry.
provides these men with the needed academic skills to handle the course requirements at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary.
5. 6. 7.
All men who express a desire to prepare for the WELS pastoral ministry meet with the Non-traditional Student Committee at Martin Luther College before they are accepted into the program. The Seminary Certification Program is designed for men who have demonstrated spiritual maturity and leadership skills in their local congregations. Men who are older than traditional college students when they first enter Martin Luther College have the option of a degree program or a Seminary Certification Program. Under ordinary circumstances, men who discontinue their studies at Martin Luther College and later return resume the program they were carrying when they discontinued. The registrar's office tailors a Seminary Certification Program to correspond with the academic background of each student accepted into the program. The registrar's office arranges a program for each student, which allows the student to acquire needed academic skills in the fewest possible semesters. Martin Luther College awards a certificate to men who successfully complete their prescribed Seminary Certification Program.

for Studies in Educational
BASIC CURRICULUM The teacher education program of Martin Luther College exists to prepare qualified educators for the teaching ministry in the Lutheran early childhood education centers, elementary, and secondary schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Therefore, the college offers a basic curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Education degree. The first two years of this program provide the student with a broad general education. The final two or three years add to general education, but they also include specialization in the field of education and a concentration or major in one academic area. The areas of concentration from which a student may select are English, mathematics, music, science, social studies, and Spanish; students in the elementary and secondary program select a major from English, mathematics, music, physical education, science, social studies, and Spanish. Students in early childhood education select an area of concentration and take 74 credits in elementary and early childhood education, including student teaching at both levels. Included within the teacher education curriculum are music courses so that, as far as gifts and abilities permit, graduates may serve as organists and choir directors in congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. PRE-PROFESSIONAL
SKILLS TEST (PPST)
All sophomores and upper level transfer students in the teacher education programs must write the Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST) in reading, writing, and mathematics. A student must pass the three tests before registering for the professional semester, which includes student teaching in the elementary school. This registration occurs in the second semester of the junior year. ELEMENTARY PROGRAM ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN EDUCATION DEGREE 1.

EARLY FIELD EXPERIENCE (EFE) FOR BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN EDUCATION DEGREE In order to become familiar with the responsibilities of the teaching ministry before they enter student teaching, all students must meet the requirements of a two-phase early field experience. EFE is a non-credit requirement of the Studies in Educational Ministry curriculum in professional education. Students must complete this program prior to their elementary student teaching. Transfer students will receive guidelines for their EFE requirements upon admission to Martin Luther College.
PHASE ONE: ONE-WEEK EXPERIENCE All freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will participate in an early field experience during one week of the second semester. The week for the experience is indicated on the college calendar. Freshmen receive their experience on campus through a variety of activities. Sophomores and juniors are responsible for making arrangements to receive their experience in a Lutheran school classroom. Sophomores enrolled in the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) are encouraged to gain their experience in a WELS high school. Students enrolled in the Early Childhood program are encouraged to use early childhood classrooms (preschool-grade two) during either the sophomore or junior early field experience. All other sophomores and all juniors must receive their experience in a Lutheran elementary school. 51
Course Listing for Studies in Educational Ministry PHASE TWO: INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCE All students complete and record a minimum of fifty hours of experience in activities related to the work of the teaching ministry. Students are to gain experiences in three areas: congregational activities; classroom activities, pre-school-grade 12; interaction with children or young adults, ages 0-18. Students must complete and record all fifty hours of experiences before they will be permitted to register for student teaching or for the next year's classes. STUDENT TEACHING Student teaching is evaluated as "Pass-Incomplete-Fail" (PST, 1ST, FST). This evaluation carries no grade points and does not affect a student's academic grade point average. NUMBER

of the MLC Seal MARTIN LUTHER COLLEGE SEAL
MARTIN LUTHER COLLEGE
The Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod's college for ministry bears the name of the great sixteenth century reformer, Martin Luther, whose ministry is an inspiration for all who aspire to the high calling of the public ministry today.
The MLC campus is located in the city of New Ulm in the state of Minnesota.
MLC opened on July 1, 1995.
MLC continues the service rendered to the WELS by Northwestern College of Watertown, Wisconsin (1865-1995), and by Dr. Martin Luther College of New Ulm, Minnesota (1884-1995).The Roman numerals on the seal are the founding dates of these two schools.
MLC borrows from the seal of Dr. Luther. He wrote the following things about the items which MLC has appropriated for its seal:
"A black cross within the heart reminds me that faith in Christ crucified saves me."
"Although the cross is black, mortified and intended to cause pain, yet it does not change the color of the heart, does not destroy nature, i.e., does not kill, but keeps alive.The just shall live by faith!"
'The heart is fixed upon the center of a white rose, to show that faith causes joy, consolation, and peace.The rose is white because white is the ideal color of all angels and blessed spirits."
'The letters of the word VIVIT [Latin for 'he lives'] are written on the petals of the rose. Because Christ lives, I too shall live."
Below, supporting the seal, are words of Jesus from John 14:6, "I am the way [Latin: VIA], the truth [Latin: VERITASj, and the life [Latin: VITA].
Red, white, and black are the colors of MLC.
MLC trains young people to bring the true way of life to a world dying in darkness.
The way is by grace alone. Truth is by Scripture alone. Life is by faith alone. These are the darkness-dispelling gifts Jesus brings.
Red is the color of martyrs, Christ's faithful witnesses. MLC's mission is to send forth ministers of the gospel who proclaim but one way, but one truth, and but one life.
