Message From the President Pastor Theodore B. Olsen

Come, 0 sinners, one and all, Come, accept his invitation. Come, obey his gracious call; Come and take his free salvation! Firmly in these words believe - Jesus sinners does receive. CW304:4 Paul says it this way: "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Yet he follows with some penetrating questions as to how believers can witness to someone they have not heard about. Then Paul asks," And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?" That is what Martin Luther College is all about. Through a rigorous and demanding curriculum it prepares one to become a herald of the Gospel as a pastor, a staff minister, an elementary teacher, an early childhood education teacher, or a secondary teacher. There are over 1000 students at Martin Luther College getting ready to issue the invitation, "Come, 0 sinners, one and all ... Come and take his free salvation." Those preparing for educational ministry will take their places in God's vineyard upon graduation from Martin Luther College, and those preparing for pastoral ministry will continue their education at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary upon graduation. A quality college education, preparation for public ministry, the fellowship of God's children, a faith-filled and dedicated faculty, fine facilities - what blessings we experience at Martin Luther College. Would you care to join us in all these blessings and then have the joy and privilege to serve the Lord and his people as a servant of the Gospel? Contact our admissions department - you will be glad you did.

Vacations

Community

Dormitories and the cafeteria open the weekend before the first class in fall and close on graduation day in spring. Facilities are closed during the longer Christmas and spring breaks and the shorter Thanksgiving and Easter recesses. 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.

God created us to live together with him and with each other. In this world where sin separates and divides, we thank God for gathering us together as his people in Christ. God enables us to live together with each other in a Christian community and enjoy the blessings of worshiping, working, laughing, and even crying together. It is God who makes it possible for us as a campus family to encourage and admonish, forgive and befriend, help and assist.

Students and parents are often concerned about winter travel back to Martin Luther College after major vacation breaks. When winter weather causes travel concerns students and parents are asked to check the MLC Internet website [www.mlc-wels.edu] for information concerning school closing, or phone the college information desk at 507-354-8221.

Common to all Christian students is the struggle between the new man of faith and the old sinful nature. The new man wants to love God and people perfectly. The old Adam hates what is good and is completely selfish. God's Law uncovers and exposes sinful selfishness, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ covers, heals, and comforts with the message of forgiveness won by Christ.

Housing

Moreover, God's gracious forgiveness provides the power for godly living, striving, and maturing. When more than

Ingeneral, college policy is that students live in the dormitories provided by our synod. Unmarried students live with a roommate in one of five residence halls operated by the college. 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. Married students arrange their own housing.

1,000 people share close quarters on our campus, opportunity abounds for selfishness to hurt and wound. But God the Holy Spirit uses his Word on our campus to tum us away from sin, tum us back to Christ in repentance and faith, and tum our hearts and hands toward others in love.

Worship

The college provides a bed, mattress, desk, chair, dresser, and wardrobe for each dormitory resident. Rooms are equipped with connections for phone, cable TV and the campus computer network. 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 or deposit. Before bringing items to campus, please contact the Vice-President for Student Life.

Martin Luther College plans its day around the worship of our Lord. Morning and evening chapel services provide our campus family with opportunity to gather together around the Word, to sing, to pray, and to praise God. Students are also encouraged and expected to att~nd worship services at one of the area WELS congregations.

Class Attendance Martin Luther College expects students to attend their classes. The public ministry calls for faithfulness, and regular class attendance is one training ground for that important requirement. Illness and emergency, of course, may necessitate absence from class.

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.

The academic calendar specifies when classes an' in session. Students and their parents and families are expected to respect the academic calendar, particularly when making travel arrangements and vacation plans.

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). Local banks cash personal checks for students who present proper identification.

Health Services

Student Government

New students submit a physician's health evaluation and a profile of medical history on forms provided them by the college. Proof of immunization (Diphtherial Tetanus within the past 10 years, MMR, and Polio) is a legal requirement for campus residency.

Each class selects its own officers and elects delegates to the Student Senate. Each of the five residence halls has a dormitory council elected by its own residents. The Student Senate is the student body's voice in matters affecting student life at MLC. Class officers attend to the specific concerns of each class. Dormitory councils address concerns of residential living.

It is Martin Luther College policy that necessary medical and immunization forms be returned to the Admissions Office prior to a student's arrival on campus.

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, or that may impact future assignment. The Campus Pastor then counsels with these students.

An on-staff registered nurse meets the routine health needs of student. She holds regular hours on-campus each school day. New Ulm has a regional hospital and competent physicians in most fields. A student is responsible for the costs of off-campus care, which 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. Intercollegiate athletes at Martin Luther College fall under the protection of NCAA coverage for catastrophic injury. Intercollegiate athletes must carry their own major medical insurance and must update their health records with a physical exam prior to their junior year.

Academic Counseling Each student is assigned a faculty member as an academic advisor. The advisor helps chart the path to graduation by tracking academic progress and assisting the student to choose appropriate courses. The advisor may also offer personal counseling or direct the student to someone who can also help with non-academic concerns.

Personal and Spiritual Counseling

Campus Living

Students who serve as resident assistants provide peer counseling. There is one resident assistant on each floor or wing of a dormitory. Each dormitory has an adult resident supervisor to whom a student may also tum. The Vice-President for Student Life is available for other concerns. The Martin Luther College Campus Pastor offers confidential spiritual counseling. A regional office of the Wisconsin Lutheran Child and Family Service supplements the work of the Vice-President for Student Life and the Campus Pastor at their recommendation and referral.

Martin Luther College publishes a handbook that contains campus regulations and guidelines. Christian principles and courtesy form the necessary framework for day-to-day living on campus. By enrolling, each student declares his willingness to abide by both the letter and the spirit of these common-sense regulations. 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 the goal is to promote peace, harmony, and loving concern for others. The Holy Spirit works 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 or readiness for public ministry, a student may be asked to leave school.

Motor Vehicles A student may bring a motor vehicle to campus under the following conditions: • 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 $40 to $80 per year.

Campus regulations reflect the concerns of our civil government. The Martin Luther College Governing Board has declared our campus to be drug- and alcohol-free. Martin Luther College has also established procedures to deal with sexual harassment. Racial prejudice is a form of lovelessness that the college family works with God's Word to eliminate.

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. 8


Publications: Students write, edit, and layout the school literary magazine, The Knight's Page, and the college yearbook, The Shield.

Parking space on campus is limited. It may not be possible to accommodate all those wishing to bring vehicles to campus. Students must register for parking prior to bringing their vehicles to campus.

Social Events: Students participate in homecoming activities, snow carnival events, class events and outings, lyceums and cultural events, and specialized clubs.

Orientation And Registration Current students register for classes prior to the end of each school year. New students and incoming freshmen will be pre-registered before the beginning of the school year. The college welcomes new students and their parents to a few days of orientation at the beginning of the first semester. Matters such as room and roommate assignment, car registration, parking, financial aid, and the initial payment of fees are handled by mail prior to arrival on campus. It is important that students supply the college with a correct summer address.

School Spirit: Students have opportunity to participate in pep fests, cheerleading, and the campus dance team. Service Clubs: Students can assist with campus life by joining audio-visual services, becoming recruitment hosts, and serving as campus ambassadors.

Athletics Martin Luther College offers a comprehensive intercollegiate athletic program for men and women. The college is associated with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA Division III), the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA Division II), and the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference. Cross country, soccer, basketball, tennis, and track and field are offered to both men and women. In addition, women may compete in volleyball, softball, and golf, while men can compete in football, golf, and baseball.

Off-Campus Life The community of New Ulm offers part-time jobs to as many students as need them. Employment opportunities are posted regularly in the Luther Student Center in cooperation with Minnesota Job Service. Job opportunities are also listed on the Martin Luther College Campus Intranet. Students may shop for personal needs in New Ulm, nearby Mankato, or the Twin Cities. All three areas sponsor cultural and recreational activities.

Intramural competition is offered for both men and women in tennis, indoor soccer, basketball, volleyball, bowling, badminton, 3-on-3 basketball, softball, and flag football. All students not participating in intercollegiate sports during the respective sport season are eligible to be a part of the intramural program. The program is operated through a student board under the guidance of the Athletic Director.

Handicapped Accessibility Although most campus buildings were built prior to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American Disabilities Act of 1990, 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, Augustana and Summit dormitories are served by elevators. Every attempt is made to eliminate any disadvantages and create a sensitive learning environment for all students with disabilities.

Extra-Curricular

The athletic program is under control of the faculty athletic committee with recommendations provided by a student athletic board. The Athletic Director supervises the activities and schedules all intercollegiate athletics and intramural events. The Athletic Director also supervises the dance team and cheerleading squads.

Life

Government: Students can participate in campus leadership opportunities such as Student Senate, dormitory councils, class offices, and an intramural athletic board.

Athletics at Martin Luther College help to contribute to a positive overall college experience for students. Christian sportsmanship is just as important as participation and winning is never placed at odds with learning. Gender equity in sports is observed.

Music and Dramatics: student-led drama club, Forum, produces a fall musical, a winter play, reader's theater, outdoor classical theater in the park, and a children's theater play. The MLC Music Division sponsors multiple performance choirs, bands, ensembles, jazz band, and handbells.

Entrance Preferences Studies in Pastoral Ministry

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS In keeping with its mission to prepare men and women for service in the churches and schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, Martin Luther College admits into its programs students who

The college courses which fulfill the Bachelor of Arts requirements for 133/134 semester hours are based upon a high school program which includes: • 3 credits in Religion (Surveys of the Old and New Testaments and Christian Doctrine) • 2 credits in Music (Basic Theory) • 2 credits in a foreign language, with a demonstrated level of ability on an entrance examination. This preference can be met in the following ways: 2 credits in Latin* or 2 credits in German* or 2 credits in Spanish or 2 credits in another foreign language (Martin Luther College offers Latin, German, and Spanish courses. Should a student desire to pursue another spoken language, he may do, so at his own expense, in a program approved by Martin Luther College.)

• are prayerfully considering the public ministry of the gospel as their life's work; • desire to serve in the public ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod; • have God-given talents that are valuable for service in the church; • possess an upright character and honorable reputation; and • have demonstrated the ability to succeed in college-level coursework. These requirements apply to all who are seeking admission to Martin Luther College for the 2002-2003 academic year. 1. Written recommendation from applicant's pastor on a form provided by the Martin Luther College Office of Admissions. 2. Written recommendation from applicant's high school counselor or principal on a form provided by the Martin Luther College Office of Admissions. 3. An ACT composite score of 20 or higher on a single enhanced test. Applicants must request that ACf scores be sent to Martin Luther College directly from ACf. This can be requested on the ACf registration form. The code number for Martin Luther College is 2127. 4. A high school diploma awarded on the basis of a minimum cumulative GPA of 250 figured on a minimum of 14 academic credits earned according to the following schedule: • English-4 credits • Laboratory Science-3 credits (must include one credit in biology and one credit in physical science [chemistry or physics] each with significant laboratory experience) • Mathematics - 3 credits (Algebra I, Algebra TI,and Geometry or higher mathematics) • Social Studies - 2 credits • Academic Electives-2 credits (English, Foreign Language, Mathematics, Science, Music Fundamentals, Social Studies) Note: A high-schoolcredit is definedas one year of study.

*Latin and German may offer advantages to a theological student. MLC assumes that many students will enter with more than two credits in a foreign language. Students may receive college credit for additional high school semesters if: (a) they achieve an acceptable score on an entrance examination, and (b) they continue with that language on the college level. There are advantages to the study of Latin as the first foreign language in high school. Latin serves as a good introduction to the study of other foreign languages. If a student desires to take the Confessional Languages option, he will find it advantageous to take both Latin and German in high school. Students who lack these preferred high school credits carry college courses which compensate for these deficiencies. Most students can complete a degree program in four years even if they are lacking some of the preferred high school credits.

Students with an ACT mathematics score of 17 or lower are required to complete 3007 Developmental Mathematics before enrolling in any other mathematics course(s). Developmental Mathematics does not fulfill any of the mathematics requirements for graduation. 11

THE TRAINING

FOR MINISTRY

Sources and Types of Financial Aid

A decision to enroll at Martin Luther College involves not only a willingness to serve one's Lord in an area of Christian ministry but also a commitment of time and money. To help students reach that goal of Christian ministry, Martin Luther College maintains a comprehensive financial aid program consisting of grants, loans, scholarships, and work study.

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.

Grant and Scholarship Sources •

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, because student and family resources are not equal, MLC's financial aid program exists to help students.

• •

Synod Subsidy

Martin Luther College trust fund income and reserves Synod special and budgetary funds for financial aid Federal Pell Grant Federal Supplementary Educational Opportunity Grant Minnesota State Grant Program Fraternal insurance associations

Loan Sources

To keep costs to students as low as possible, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod provides a generous subsidy to operating costs. That means total costs to students are much less than at other private colleges and are 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 approximately $5000.

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 Deadlines on the following pages). 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 meet costs, but it does serve to compare student and family resources and helps to distribute financial aid equitably.

Other Benefits Martin Luther College is also certified for Veteran Benefits, DVR, and Native American programs for students who qualify.

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 for financial aid. In the 2001-2002 academic year, 82% of the students at Martin Luther College received aid which depended on the results of the need analysis. Ninety-four percent of the students received some form of financial aid.

A first-semester Incomplete must be converted to a permanent grade by mid-term of the second semester, a second semester Incomplete by the end of the summer session, and a summer session Incomplete by mid-term of the first semester, or the permanent grade is recorded as an F.

2. The number of hours taken (credit plus audit hours) cannot exceed 19 credits for the student with a grade point average less than 3.00 or 21 credits for the student with a grade point average of 3.00 or greater. 3.

5. Procedures for withdrawing from a course taken for audit are identical to those followed when withdrawing from a course taken for credit.

Transfer Credits No transfer credit is granted for college courses with grades of D+ or lower.

6. Attendance is required for an audit, but tests and papers are not required.

Repetition of Courses 1. Credit in a failed course which is required for graduation is earned either by repeating the course or by successfully completing an approved substitute.

Graduation Rate 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.

2. Courses taken to remove a failure or repeated to better the grade point average are taken only in residence or, in extraordinary circumstances, through the college's correspondence program.

The cohort listed below is made up of first-time freshmen who entered in the fall of 1995 and later graduated.

3. Students in Studies in Pastoral Ministry who post first-semester failing grades in elementary foreign language courses (German 2503, Latin 2801, Greek 2613, Greek 2601, Spanish 2915, and Hebrew 2731) can receive credit in these courses by achieving second semester passing grades in the elementary foreign language courses (German 2504, Latin 2802, Greek 2614,2616, or 2602, Hebrew 2732, or Spanish 2916).

1995 Cohort - 67%

4. A course may be repeated if a student desires to better his/her grade point average. Only the grade earned in repetition will be figured in the student's grade point average, but the original grade will remain on the record.

22


a. The entering student has a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00 in a high school curriculum which offers at least 14 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.

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. II - 1.80 Sem. I - 1.70 Sem. III -1.90 Sem. IVff - 2.00

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.

2. 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 is required to withdraw. Application for readmittance is 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.)

7. The academic standing of transfer students is determined by applying Martin Luther College's standards (see #1 above) to the grade point averages on the applicant's transcript. For example, a transfer student who has been enrolled in a full-time academic program for four or more semesters needs a grade point average, semester and cumulative, of 2.00 or better to enter Martin Luther College in good standing. A student who enters on academic probation is ineligible at Martin Luther College until the student's grade point averages meet the level of good standing.

3. A student on probation discusses with his/her 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 Records Office determines 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 also discusses with his/her advisor the extent of extracurricular activities and outside employment.

8. A low cumulative grade point average may affect financial aid eligibility. See the Financial Aid section of this catalog for more information.

4. 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.

GRADING SYSTEM A AB+ B BC+ C CD+ D DE

5. Eligibility for extracurricular activities requires the minimum grade point average (GPA) for a student in good standing. As stated in # 1 above, the required GP A is the same for both the semester and the cumulative. A list of Martin Luther College activities which require eligibility appears in the Knight's Daybook. 6. An entering special student or freshman who is a high school graduate with no previous full-time college attendance shall be considered eligible for extracurricular activities provided that the student meets the following two academic requirements:

Withdrawals

from the College

1. The student who finds it necessary to withdraw from the college must first report to the Vice President for Student Life for instructions on procedures. 2. A student who withdraws from the college after the first two weeks of the semester has WP or WF recorded for courses. 3. Students are not permitted to withdraw officially during the last two weeks of any semester. 4. When a student does not follow official procedures in voluntarily withdrawing from the college, a note recording the unauthorized withdrawal is transcribed on the student's permanent record.

Writing Policy Because the college considers the ability to express oneself dearly, correctly, and responsibly in writing to be a necessity for college work and an essential characteristic of a Christian minister, it strives to teach and maintain good writing practices. 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.

Transcripts One free transcript is available to each student. A fee of $2.00 is charged for each subsequent transcript. Transcript requests must be made in writing to the Records Office and must be signed by the applicant. Make checks payable to Martin Luther College. Address correspondence to: Martin Luther College Records Office 1995 Luther Court New UIm, MN 56073.

from Courses

1 Within the first two weeks of the semester and with the approval of the advisor, the instructor, and the Records Office, a student may drop and/ or add a course. 2 Under special circumstances a student may drop a course with the approval of the advisor, the Records Office, and the instructor after the first two weeks of the semester and up to midterm. For music keyboard or voice, the music division chair must also approve the withdrawal. For these courses the student's record shows either WP (withdrawal passing) or WF (withdrawal failing). Neither the WP nor the WF will be counted in computing the grade point average. 3 An unauthorized withdrawal from a course is recorded as an F. This F is counted in the grade point average.

Advanced Placement High school students who take the College Entrance Examination Board Advanced Placement Tests may receive college credit. For details and passing grades for particular subjects, contact the MLC Records Office.

STUDIES IN PASTORAL MINISTRY COURSE LISTING FOR STUDIES IN PASTORAL MINISTRY (For students with freshman or sophomore standing in 2002¡2003 and subsequent years)

The Studies in Pastoral Ministry curriculum at Martin Luther College prepares men to enroll at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. This course of study stresses foreign languages. Hebrew and Greek, required of all students, are the original languages of Scripture. A student selects a non-biblical language option from a menu of German, Latin, a German/Latin combination, Spanish, or another spoken language. Lutheran theologians did much of their writing in German and Latin, while Spanish is the primary language of a growing segment of the American population. A student may also fulfill the non-biblical language requirement with achievement in another living language. In addition, the curriculum includes a selective liberal arts emphasis, with special attention given to literature and history.

STUDIES IN EDUCATIONAL MINISTRY Martin Luther College's teacher education programs are designed to prepare students for the teaching ministry. Students demonstrate a firm grounding in God' s Word, demonstrate competency in planning, teaching, and evaluating lessons, and demonstrate the ability to create effective learning environments. Students also demonstrate a "service attitude" toward their students, their schools, and their congregations. Included within the education curriculum are music courses so that, as far as abilities permit, graduates may serve as organists and choir directors in congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Programs available are elementary education, secondary education, and early childhood education.

The ~~ograms in Educational Ministry exist to prepare qualified educators and staff ministers for schools and congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Therefore, both Teacher Education programs and Staff Ministry programs lead to Bachelor of Science degrees. The following policies apply to all Studies in Educational Ministry students. 1. A 2.5 GPA is required for all majors. The majors are staff ministry, early childhood education, elementary education, and the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) majors. 2. A minimum grade point average of 2.00 for the three Bible courses (6007, 6008, and 6009) and a minimum grade point average of 2.00 for the three doctrine courses (6020, 6050, and 6075) are required for graduation.

Elementary Education Major • Elementary Education (K-6) Licensure with Communication Arts & Literature Emphasis (Grades

5-8) • Elementary Education (K-6) Licensure with Mathematics Emphasis (Grades 5-8) • Elementary Education (K-6) Licensure with Science Emphasis (Grades 5-8) • Elementary Education (K-6) Licensure with Social Studies Emphasis (Grades 5-8)

Teacher Education Programs To prepare qualified educators the college offers a curriculum that leads to the Bachelor of Science in Education degree. The elementary teacher education program is approved by the Minnesota Board of Teaching. Successful completion of the curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Education degree enables its graduates to meet the Minnesota standards for elementary school licensure.

Students also have the option of adding one of the following non-licensure Emphasis areas - Coaching, German, Music, Physical Education, Spanish.

The education curriculum includes a thorough general education, a more in-depth study of a curricular area, and professional education courses. Professional education includes courses that prepare graduates for teaching and gives students six clinical experiences plus student teaching in which they apply standards of effective teaching. Students must take the Praxis I (PreProfessional Skills Test) by the end of the sophomore year. Students also are required to take the Praxis II tests (Elementary Education: Content Knowledge and Principles of Teaching and Learning: Grades K-6). Students are required to successfully pass these tests before their approval for graduation and licensure.

Since the curriculum has been redesigned, individual programs for Juniors and Seniors will vary. These students should consult their advisors and the program plans for their respective areas of study.

Policies concerning admission to teacher education programs, continuance in the programs, admission to student teaching, and licensure requirements are detailed in the Martin Luther College TeacherEducation

Handbook.

Martin Luther College Seal 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.

1995 MLC opened on July 1, 1995.

MDCCCLXV /MDCCCLXXXIV MLC continues the service rendered to the WELS by NorthwestemCollege 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.

Luther's Seal MLC borrows from the seal of Dr. Luther. He wrote the following things about the items which MLC has appropriated for its seal: Cross: "A black cross within the heart reminds me that faith in Christ crucified saves me." Heart: "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!" Rose: "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." V-J- V-J-T: "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."

Morro Below, supporting the seal, are words of Jesus from John 14:6, "I am the way [Latin: VIA], the truth [Latin: VERITAS], and the life [Latin: VITA].

COLORS Red, white, and black are the colors of MLC. Black: MLC trains young people to bring the true way of life to a world dying in darkness. White: 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: 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.
