Message From the President Reverend Theodore B. Olsen

Making A Difference The apostle Paul states in Romans 10, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." He then goes on to ask three questions. 1." How can they call on the one they have not believed in?" 2. "How can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?" 3. "How can they hear without someone preaching to them?" We can ask, Who is that "someone" in the last question? Who is the "someone" who will make the most difference that can possibly be made? Who will "preach to them" the Gospel of Jesus Christ through which the Holy Spirit brings them to faith and Jesus grants them everlasting life. The difference is more than temporal, it is everlasting. Martin Luther College, the WELS College of Ministry, exists to prepare the next generation of Gospel heralds and offers five ways to proclaim that life saving Gospel; studies in pastoral ministry and studies in educational ministry which includes early childhood ministry, elementary school ministry, high school ministry, and staff ministry. There are some 800 students at MLC preparing to "preach to them." Would you like to make a difference, an everlasting difference? Martin Luther College is an exciting place to be, a place at which you will be challenged, a place to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, a place from which you can move forward to proclaim Christ. Are you looking for the excitement of working with the most powerful thing in the world - the Word of the Lord? Then, MLC may be the place for you!

A Christian Community 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.

Vacations 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 holiday recesses. Those who live farther from home are encouraged to spend the break at the home of a friend.

Common to all Christians 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. Moreover, God's gracious forgiveness

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 Portal [www.portal.mlc-wels.edul for information concerning school closing, or phone the college information desk at 507-354-8221.

Housing In general, 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. If enrollment numbers are greater than dormitory capacities, then single students who are four or more years out of high school and have reached the age of 21, 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.

quarters on our campus, opportunity abounds for selfishness to hurt and wound. But God the Holy Spirit uses his Word on our campus to turn us away from sin, turn us back to Christ in repentance and faith, and turn our hearts and hands toward others in love. Worship 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 expected to attend worship services at one of the area WELS congregations. The faculty provides organized opportunities for small group Bible study.

The college provides a bed, mattress, desk, chair, dresser space, and wardrobe/ closet 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,

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 students are required to participate in the meal plan offered by the college. Our cafeteria offers continuous /17AM to 7 PM" service. Students with an ID can enter the cafeteria as often as their schedules permit. The cafeteria provides a variety of menu items and a number of specialty bars each day. Off-campus students may also purchase meals in the cafeteria.

The academic calendar specifies when classes are in session. Students and their parents and families are expected to follow the academic calendar, particularly when making travel arrangements and vacation plans. Travel arrangements should be made after the last exam date of the semester.

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 $50 per day). Some local banks will cash personal checks for students who present proper identification and have an account with them.

when behavior calls into question a person's fitness or readiness for service in the public ministry, a student may be asked to leave school. 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.

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 (Diphtherial Tetanus within the past 10 years, MMR, and Polio) is a legal requirement for campus residency.

Student Government 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. An on-staff registered nurse meets the routine health needs of student. She holds regular hours oncampus each school day. New VIm 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.

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 Vice-President for Student Life and the Campus Pastor counsel with these students. 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.

Campus Living 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 a 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. Inall 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

Personal and Spiritual Counseling 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 Christian Family Counseling, a ministry 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.

The payment amount varies according to the plan selected. Failure to meet payment deadlines places a student in delinquent status. A 10-day grace period follows each due date. Failure to make appropriate payment by the end of the grace period typically will result in termination of enrollment. All students have the right of appeal to the president. A $50 charge applies when an insufficient fund notice is received from the bank on behalf of a student. Initial billing statements reflect financial aid allotments if application and other deadlines have been met; loans or aid received after these deadlines will be reflected on later statements. Duplicate billing statements may be sent to parents or another party for a yearly $20 processing fee and upon signing a release form. The school observes federal laws regarding confidentiality by sending statements only to students or persons designated by them. A separate consent form is required for students directing the college to communicate account information to other individuals. The college does not accept credit cards for payment on student accounts. Refunds/Withdrawals A flat fee of $75 per day on campus is charged when a student discontinues during the first quarter of a semester. Any account balance will be refunded during this period. Students discontinuing after the first quarter of a semester will not receive a credit for tuition, room and board. A $100 severance fee is charged for early termination of enrollment. A portion of any withdrawal refund may be used to repay financial aid programs. Students who withdraw during the first thirty days of a semester will not receive any institutional grants or scholarships administered by Martin Luther College. Federal regulations require that a percentage of Title IV funds be returned if withdrawal occurs before completion of 60% of a semester. Minnesota State Grant regulations require that any unearned portion of Minnesota State Grant be returned upon withdrawal from MLC. Questions Questions with regard to payment policies or procedures should be directed to the Financial Services Office. Call (507) 354-8221.

FINANCING

THE TRAINING

Martin Luther College also offers special scholarships based on academic achievement or other criteria which are awarded to both entering high school graduates and continuing students.

FOR

MINISTRY 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.

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. Grant and Scholarship Sources • Martin Luther College trust fund income and reserves

A Family Responsibility The financial aid philosophy of both the federal government and Martin Luther College 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 special and budgetary funds for financial aid • Federal Pell Grant • Federal Supplementary Grant

Educational Opportunity

• Minnesota State Grant Program • Fraternal insurance associations

Synod Subsidy The Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod provides a subsidy for the operating costs of Martin Luther College which reduces the cost of education for each student and is a way the WELS supports its ministerial education students. Martin Luther College's tuition figure reflects this reduction; it does not appear on the student's financial statement or financial aid letter.

Loan Sources • Federal Perkins Loan • Federal Stafford Loan • Federal Parent Loans for Undergraduate (PLUS) • Minnesota Supplementary (SELF)

Students

Educational Loan Fund

• Martin Luther College special loan funds

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 Deadlines on the following page). 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.

Special Work Programs In addition to regular on-campus and off-campus jobs • Federal Work Study Other Benefits Martin Luther College is also certified for Veteran Benefits, DVR, and Native American programs for students who qualify. Application Deadlines Complete both of the following by April 15, 2006, for August (first semester) enrollment (November 1 for second semester).

Need as it relates to financial aid does not necessarily mean needy. Many students qualify for some form of need-based aid, and in the 2005-2006 academic year, 90% of the students at Martin Luther College received some form of financial aid. Unless a student applies for financial aid, no aid can be awarded.

./ Complete and file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is the need analysis document which is used by all colleges. Martin Luther College's ID number for Step 6 is 002361. A FAFSA is available from high school counseling 18

2. Maximum Time Frame A student is no longer eligible to receive financial aid once the student has been in full time attendance for more than 150% of the number of semesters normally required to complete the student's program. A four year program must be completed in twelve semesters. A five year program must be completed in fifteen semesters. A two year certificate program must be completed in six semesters. Students who attend less than full time will have the time of completion appropriately adjusted.

offices, from other college financial aid offices, or from Martin Luther College. Students and parents can complete and submit a FAFSA on the Internet. MLC's website www.mlc-weJs.edu/ Financial Aid contains a link to "FAFSA on the Web." ./ Complete and file a Martin Luther College Financial Aid Application. This form collects needed information, including special family expenses and circumstances, which may be used to make adjustments. The FAFSA may be filed right up to the end of the second semester, and it may be possible to get financial aid from federal and state programs late in the year. However, in order to be considered for Martin Luther College Grant Funds, both the FAFSA and the Martin Luther College Financial Aid Application must be filed by April 15, 2006, for the first semester for the 2006-2007 academic year (November 1 for second semester).

3. Completion Rate At the end of each academic year, a student's academic progress will be measured by comparing the number of attempted credit hours with the credit hours earned (i.e., received a grade of A, B, C, or D). This includes any course for which the student has remained enrolled past the Drop/Add period. A student must earn 67 percent of credits attempted to maintain satisfactory academic progress. The following are considered when evaluating a student's satisfactory academic progress: • Withdrawn Classes: Withdrawals and failures are considered attempted but not earned hours. Under special circumstances a student may drop a course with the approval of the appropriate dean after the first two weeks of the semester and up to two weeks after midterm. For these courses the student's record shows Wand is not counted in computing the grade point average. An unauthorized withdrawal from a class is recorded as an F. It is counted in the GPA and in credits attempted.

Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy Federal regulations require Martin Luther College to establish satisfactory academic progress standards for student financial aid recipients. Martin Luther College's standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress measure a student's performance in the following three areas: completion rate, cumulative grade point average (GPA), and maximum time frame. The Financial Aid Office is responsible for ensuring that all students who receive federal, state, and institutional financial aid are meeting these standards. Progress is reviewed at the end of each semester. The Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress apply for all financial assistance programs including Federal Pell Grant, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work-Study (FWS) Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Family Education Loans (Stafford and PLUS), as well as assistance from the state and the institution. The only exceptions are Synod prep school tuition refunds and distance grants, which are based solely on being in attendance. 1. Cumulative GPA In order to retain financial aid eligibility the student must maintain a cumulative GPA of: • Following semester I 1.70 • Following semester II 1.80 • Following semester III 1.90 • Following semester IV 2.00 • Subsequent semesters 2.00

19

Incomplete Classes: Incomplete grades are temporary grades given when a student doing otherwise acceptable work is unable to complete the course assignments for reasons acceptable to the instructor. 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 July summer session, and a summer session incomplete by mid-term of the first semester, or the permanent grade is recorded as an F.

PassjFail Classes: Passing credits received for pass/fail courses are considered attempted and earned credits; failing grades in pass/fail courses are considered attempted but not earned.


\.,

\.I •

Repeated Classes: Classes for failed courses that are repeated because they are required for graduation are eligible for financial aid. Repeated courses are included in the calculation of attempted and earned hours. A student is allowed to repeat a course only twice.

Audit Classes: Audited courses are not considered credits attempted or earned.

Remedial Classes: Remedial courses are included in the calculation of both attempted and earned hours.

Learning disability

Interpersonal problems with friends, roommates, or significant others

Financial difficulties

Information Additional information about financial aid programs at Martin Luther College can be found in a separate financial aid brochure. Students who apply for admission to Martin Luther College will be sent a Financial Aid Brochure and a Financial Aid Application.

5. Appeals and Reinstatement To appeal the financial aid suspension, a student must submit to the Financial Aid Office a signed and dated letter of appeal explaining why financial aid should not be suspended. Acceptable reasons for an appeal include the following: • Medical

Emotional problem

6. Publicity Martin Luther College's SAP policy is published in the college catalog. New students are informed about Martin Luther College's SAP policy by information included in the Frequently Asked Questions booklet which is sent to all applicants by the Admissions Office. Award letters include information directing the student to the college's web address where SAP policy can be reviewed. During the week of fall midterm finals, a notice is posted in Knightly News reminding all students of the college's satisfactory academic progress policy and directing them to the complete policy posted on the intranet or to printed copies available in the Financial Aid Office.

4. Probation and Suspension Students who fail to achieve the cumulative GPA requirements for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) will be on probation and will receive financial aid one additional semester. The probationary semester is meant to inform the student of academic problems and provide for corrective action. Students, who achieve the GP A requirement for the number of semesters attended following the probationary semester, will no longer be on probation. Students who do not achieve the GPA requirement following the probationary semester, will be suspended from receiving financial aid for the following semester or summer session or for as long as the student is not in good standing. The Director of Financial Aid will send a letter to the student explaining the status. A student will be granted only one probationary period.

'-' '-'

Documentation verifying the situation may be requested. The Financial Aid Committee will consider the appeal and render a decision, which the Director of Financial Aid conveys to the student in writing. If the appeal is not granted, this does not preclude a student from enrolling in subsequent semesters. Students will have their financial aid eligibility reinstated by the Financial Aid Office once all satisfactory academic progress standards are met.

Change of Major: If a student changes majors, the hours attempted under all courses of study are included in the calculation of attempted and earned hours.

Family problems

Difficulty balancing such things as work, athletics, family responsibilities, and course work

Transfer Students: Transfer credits do not count in the calculation of the GPA, but they are included in the calculation of both attempted and earned hours.

Eligibility

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. The cohort listed below is made up of first-time freshmen who entered in the fall of 1998 and later graduated. 1999 Cohort - 73% Title II Regulations Martin Luther College is in full compliance with Title II regulations and its reporting structure. Based on scores reported for the 2003-2004 reporting period, Martin Luther College's pass rate is 100%. The statewide pass rate is 99%. For more detailed documentation, interested parties should call the Education Division Office at (507) 354-8221, Ext. 223. Grade Point Average 1. The following are the minimum semester and cumulative grade point averages necessary to be a student in good standing. Sem. 1-1.70 Sem. II -1.80 Sem. III -1.90 Sem. IVff - 2.00 2.

3.

Credits earned during summer sessions in an academic program approved by the appropriate academic dean are included when calculating a student's grade point average and when determining a student's academic standing.

1.

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 that require eligibility appears in the Knight's Daybook.

2.

An entering transfer student or freshman who is a high school graduate with no previous fulltime college attendance shall be considered eligible for extracurricular activities 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 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. An entering transfer 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 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 re-admittance 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.)

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

24

The academic standing of transfer students is determined by applying Martin Luther College's standards (see Grade Point Average #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.

Students who withdraw from college and later apply for readmission must fulfill the graduation requirements that are in place at the time of readmission.

Writing Policy Because the college considers the ability to express oneself clearly, 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.

With the approval of the appropriate dean, a student may withdraw from a course after the first two weeks of the semester and up to two weeks after midterm. The dean will consult with the student's advisor and instructor before making a decision. For these courses the student's record shows Wand is not counted in computing the grade point average.

Credit by Examination Students may request to test out of certain courses. Requests are submitted to the chair of the division that offers the course. If possible, the request should be made and the test taken before registration for courses and/ or before the semester begins. The deadline for requesting credit by examination is the second class meeting of the course. Tests must be completed within one calendar week after the request is submitted. Each test may be taken only once. A $25 fee is charged for each test. A test grade of C or higher must be earned to receive credit for the course. A combined maximum of 30 credits earned by Advanced Placement testing or by this credit by examination policy may be applied to a degree program. A student cannot use credit by examination to earn credit for courses that were failed. The division chair, in consultation with the course instructor and the Academic Dean of the student's program, shall have authority to grant or

An unauthorized withdrawal from a course is recorded as an F. This F is counted in the grade point average.

Students file the notification of disability and the request for accommodations with the appropriate Academic Dean. The dean, student and instructor(s) confer to develop reasonable accommodations. Responsibilities of the student as well as accommodations are outlined in this plan. Accommodations are designed to meet the individual needs of students, but they do not compromise curricular goals, performance standards, or course content. If students do not agree with the accommodation plan, an appeal may be made to the Vice President for Academics whose decisions are final in all cases.

Music MUS220l: Introduction to Fine Arts MUSOOOl:Introduction to Music (Since this course does not apply for graduation credit, the exam is exempt from the $25

Foreign Language Testing and Placement Students completing two, three, or four years of foreign language in high school and desiring to continue that foreign language at Martin Luther College write a diagnostic test before beginning their studies, i.e., matriculating, at Martin Luther College. High school seniors who have submitted an application write the test in April/May of their senior year, transfer students during the summer prior to matriculation. The score determines their placement in the language. Students who score adequately may receive credit by examination.

Earning a Second Bachelor'S Degree Students who have completed a first bachelor's degree either at Martin Luther College or at another institution may wish to complete a second degree at Martin Luther College in one of the educational ministry programs of the college. The Records Office determines if there are any general education requirements that are not met by the student's first degree. The student's academic program determines religion and program requirements.

Academic Policy Appeals Appeals for exceptions to academic policies are made in writing to the Vice President for Academics in letter format. See the Knight's Daybook (Academic Concerns and Appeals) for procedures.

The final thirty credits must be earned at Martin Luther College.

Cross Listed Courses Although cross-listed courses are able to fulfill requirements in two areas, they can only be applied to one graduation/ program requirement.

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, see the following page or contact the MLC Records Office.

Students with Disabilities Martin Luther College complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to serve students who have disabilities as defined by the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990.

COURSE LISTING FOR STUDIES IN PASTORAL MINISTRY

u

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. Academic Credits Required for the Bachelor of Arts Degree Psychology/Philosophy English (including an area elective) Greek (including an area elective or GRK3001) Hebrew Non-biblical language option (student chooses one) German Latin Confessional Languages (German and Latin) Spanish Another spoken language Computer/Mathematics Music/Fine Arts Physical Education Religion SCience History (including an area elective) Other Cultures Free Electives (four courses)

Students in the koine Greek track have three free electives. Students in the confessional languages option will usually also have fewer free electives. Students may select a maximum of three free electives from one academic area. 132/133

A student enrolling in Studies in Pastoral Ministry with the entrance requirements and preferences listed in the admissions section can complete his program of study in four years. Most students can complete a degree program in four years even if they are lacking some of the preferred high school credits.

The curriculum includes two Greek tracks. The koine Greek track serves students in a Seminary Certification program as well as traditional students who display modest foreign language skills on their high school record. The track allows them a higher probability of success in New Testament study. The classical Greek track offers students the fullest preparation for their work in the New Testament. The academic dean assigns entering students to a Greek track on the basis of their high school record and their ACT predictive data.

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 VIm in the state of Minnesota.

1995 MLC opened on July 1, 1995.

MDCCCLXV /MDCCCLXXXIV MLC continues the service rendered to the WELS by Northwestern College of Watertown, Wisconsin (1865-1995),and by Dr. Martin Luther College of New VIm, 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-I-V-I-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."

MOTTO 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.
