Message From the President Reverend Mark G. Zarling

Greetings in our Savior Jesus, the Giver of every good and perfect gift! Hmm ... Nieman Marcus catalog or MLC academic catalog? Which would you pick up first? For dreaming big about extraordinary gifts, most would choose Nieman Marcus, its glossy pages reflecting expensive excellence. Imagine receiving such a treasure - you'd be stunned at the value, astounded at the enormity of the giver's love. You don't see expensive excellence in the MLC catalog? I do, and I don't just mean the expense of a college education. The courses of study contained here are the tools through which God will stretch your mind and touch your soul. Imagine what a generous Savior wants to give you. He has poured gifts and talents upon each of you. But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. He has instilled an inquisitive intelligence, a passion for a particular field of study, an interest in trying something new. And he will use MLC as a fine jeweler, polishing your gifts, shaping you into a servant of the gospel, so that you may present that gospel, the pearl of great price, to others. God seeks to bring expensive excellence to his church - expensive, because you are bought at a price, excellence, because it is God who works in you to live and to act according to his good purpose. Imagine how God can use an English course to sharpen your ability to communicate the Word. Imagine how that geometry class can fill you with wonder at a Creator God who is not a God of disorder. Imagine- that Hebrew course will prepare you to listen to God speak in his inspired whisper. Imagine- that physical education course will help you marvel at your body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Imagine - that history class will show you the hand of the One who controls all things, for God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church. Peruse this catalog, and dream big. Expensive excellence is captured on these pages- gifts from God, pathways to ministry. They are yours for the taking, that through you, God will bring his gift of life in Jesus to countless souls in classrooms and pulpits, in hallways and highways, here and around the world.

FOR

The college provides scholarship opportunities to incoming freshmen entering fall semester who were graduated high school the previous spring. Eligibility is determined by cumulative GPA and ACT score. Continuing students earn merit scholarships on the basis of cumulative GPA from the previous year. See MLC's Financial Aid Frequently Asked Questions booklet for specific information.

MINISTRY ~ decision to enroll at Martin Luther College mvolves 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 finandal aid program consisting of grants, loans, scholarships, and work study.

Grant and Scholarship Sources

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

A Family Responsibility

The finandal 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 finandal aid program exists to help students.

Loan Sources

Synod Subsidy

• Federal Perkins Loan • Federal Stafford Loan • Federal Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) • Minnesota Supplementary Educational Loan Fund (SELF) • Martin Luther College special loan funds

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 WELSsupports 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.

Special Work Programs

• On-campus jobs • Off-campus jobs • Federal Work Study

Need Based Financial Aid

Much financial aid may be described as need based, meaning that a student's family financial resources are considered. This requires a need analysis (see Application Deadlines). 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 certified for Veteran Benefits and Native American programs for students who qualify. Application

Deadlines

Complete both of the following by April 15, 2008,for August (fall semester) enrollment (November 1 for spring semester).

Need as it relates to finandal aid does not necessarily mean needy. Many students qualify for some form of need-based aid, and in the 2007-2008 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 is 002361.Students and parents can complete and submit a FAFSAon the Web by going to www.fafsa.ed.&ov.

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.

./ Complete and file a Martin Luther College Finandal Aid Application. This form collects needed information, including special family expenses and circumstances, which may be used to make adjustments. The FAFSAmay be filed right up to the end of the second semester, and it may be possible to get financial aid from federal programs late in the year. However, in order to be considered for Martin Luther College Grant Funds, both the FAFSAand the Martin Luther College Finandal Aid Application must be filed by April 15,2008,for the fall semester for the 2008-2009academic year (November 1 for spring semester). Financial Aid Satisfactory Policy

3. Completion Rate At the end of fall and spring semesters, 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: 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 W and is not counted in computing the student's grade point average. An unauthorized withdrawal from a class is recorded as an F. This F is counted in the GPA. • 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. • PassfFail 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. • Repeated Classes: Gasses for failed courses that are repeated because they are required for graduation are eligible for finandal 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.

Academic Progress

Federal regulations require Martin Luther College to establish satisfactory academic progress standards for student finandal aid redpients. 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 Finandal Aid Officeis responsible for ensuring that all students who receive federal, state, and institutional finandal aid are meeting these standards. Progress is reviewed at the end of each semester. The Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress apply for all finandal 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 finandal 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 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

15


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

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. 4. Probation and Suspension Students who fail to achieve the cumulative GP A requirements for Satisfactory Academic Progress 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 GP A requirement following the probationary semester, will be suspended from receiving finandal 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.

6. Publicity Martin Luther College's Satisfactory Academic Progress policy is published in the college catalog. New students are informed about Martin Luther College's Satisfactory Academic Progress policy by information included in the MLC's Financial Aid 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 the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy can be reviewed. During the week of fall midterm break, a notice is posted on the MLC Portal 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.

Credit

Applicability of transfer credits is reevaluated when students change their program of study.

by Examination

Students may request to test out of certain courses during the drop/add period. Requests are submitted to the chair of the division that offers the course. Ideally, the request should be made and the test taken before the semester begins. The deadline for requesting credit by examination is the last day of the drop/add period. 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 with the exception of MUS0001Introduction to Music. Sincethis course does not apply for graduation credit, the exam is exempt from the $25fee. 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 deny the student's request.

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. Enrollment at Other Institutions

A student enrolled at Martin Luther College may take courses at other accredited institutions for transfer credit. Students should receive prior approval from their academic dean for courses they wish to take elsewhere. Enrollment concurrent with MLC's fall or spring semester at another institution is discouraged. A transfer course approval form is available online from the Records Office. Only courses with a C grade or better are accepted in transfer.

Experiential Learning Credit An experiential learning experience is a previous

learning experience in a classroom, on the job, in previous training, or through personal study that a student wishes to apply towards credit for a college course. The student must provide supporting documentation in the form of a portfolio. Three faculty members evaluate the portfolio for fulfillment of course objectives. Application forms may be obtained from the academic deans. A $50 non-refundable fee is charged for each application. College-Level

Examination

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. Credit Load

Normal course load at Martin Luther College is 1619 credits per semester. 1. To be classified as full-time, a student must be enrolled in at least twelve hours for credit (3/4 time = 9 credits; 1/2 time = 6 credits).

Program (CLEP)

This College Board program allows students to earn college credit by demonstrating mastery of collegelevel material in introductory subjects. To determine if CLEP credits will apply to MLC requirements, students need to contact the Records Office. The passing score for most examinations is 50. Foreign language examinations may require higher passing scores.

2. The maximum number of credits a student may take is 19 credits per semester (excluding early field experiences, elective choir, band, piano, organ, voice, and instrument). 3. A student enrolled in any program may be permitted to carry one additional course for credit or audit (an overload) if (1)he/she has a cumulative grade point average of 3.00or better, and (2)the number of credits taken in any given semester does not exceed 21 (excluding early field experiences, elective choir, band, piano, organ, voice, and instrument).

Transfer Credits

Students who have completed work at other colleges are welcome to transfer to Martin Luther College. Transfer credit is awarded for courses that satisfy MLC degree requirements. This credit is awarded for those applicable courses in which a student received a grade of C or higher.

4. If a student does not have a cumulative GPA of 3.00or better and wishes to take an overload,

to review continued enrollment may be applied. The faculty also reviews students' aptness for ministry - attitude, comportment, diligence, social skills, etc. As warranted, policies of formal expression of concern, formal review of aptness and exclusion may be applied. A full description of faculty review of students - policies and procedures - may be found in the Student Handbook. In all cases of exclusion students may appeal to the president.

Student Classification

Students are classified at the beginning of each semester according to the total number of credits earned. Transfer students are classified according to the number of credits transferred into Martin Luther College. Freshmen Sophomore Junior Senior Fifth Year Senior

Probation and dismissal

1. A student on probation must become a student in good standing by the end of the next semester of attendance or by the end of summer session if it is attended. A student who fails to gain this status is required to withdraw from college. 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.

Advising

The Academic Deans for Studies in Educational Ministry and Studies in Pastoral Ministry oversee the advising program at Martin Luther College. They maintain and make the college's various program plans available to students. Each student receives an academic advisor. The Deans oversee any reassigning of advisors that may take place in subsequent years. The advisor serves as a student's first point of contact at MLC,meeting both formally and informally with each student at various points throughout the academic year. Although advisors aid students in being aware and informed about academic policies and procedures, students ultimately bear the responsibility of finishing academic programs in the typical four or five years depending on their major(s).

2. 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 appropriate dean 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.

Academic Integrity

3. A student may be dismissed from college for academic reasons, disciplinary reasons, or lack of aptness for ministry.

As a Christian community that draws its life from the gospel, Martin Luther College encourages its students to pursue academic excellencewith honesty and respect for intellectual property. Because of its focus on ministerial training, MLC has an additional reason to emphasize academic integrity. It is one of many areas in which students are expected to demonstrate the faithfulness required of gospel ministers (1 Corinthians 4:1,2). Course syllabi remind the students of the importance of academic integrity and indicate how the instructor will deal with infractions. Failure to meet expectations in this area may result in dismissal from the college (cf. Student Handbook).

Midterm Reports

All first-year students, freshmen and transfers, receive midterm reports. Semester Exams

Semester exams are given the last week of each semester. The exam schedule with policies and procedures is published before the beginning of each semester. Attendance for exams is required. The Minneapolis-St. Paul airport is a two hour drive from campus so students are advised to schedule flights at least four hours after their last exam. If emergencies prevent attendance, permission for an absence is obtained from the Vice President for Student Life. If exams are mailed to a student's home area, the exam must be proctored. For this situation, the cost of each exam is $SO.Due to the

The procedure for academic dishonesty is as follows. 1. Preliminary Step - Instructor determines the seriousness and possible level of sanction. 2. Notice Procedure - Instructor communicates with the student, asks for a response, and

STUDIES IN PASTORAL MINISTRY (PRE-SEMINARY PROGRAM) 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 GRK(001) 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)

7 15 19 14 12 13 19 12 12 5 3 1 21 6 14 3 12

Students take either classical or koine Greek. The academic dean assigns entering students to classical or koine Greek on the basis of their high school record and their ACT predictive data. Koine Greek students 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. Total Credits required for graduation

132/133

A student enrolling in the Pre-Seminary Program 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.

Vacations

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.

Dormitories and the cafeteria open the weekend before the first class in fall and close on graduation day in spring. Facilitiesare normally 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 provides the power for godly living, striving, and maturing. When hundreds of 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.

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.edu) 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.

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 WELScongregations. The faculty provides organized opportunities for small group Biblestudy.

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. Beforebringing 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.

Dormitories are locked at all times. Students access their dormitory using their ID card which utilizes RFID technology.

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. Those who need to make use of the Minneapolis airport should also become familiar with shuttle service times while making their flight reservations.

Meals

Dormitory students are required to participate in the meal plan offered by the college. Our cafeteria offers continuous "7 AM to Midnight" service. While full entree items are available during traditional meal times, many other items are available at other times. Certain hot food items are also available from 7:30

PM until Midnight. 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 spedalty bars each day. Off-campus students may also purchase meals in the cafeteria.

the spirit of these common-sense regulations. The college administration and elected student representatives work together to keep guidelines upto-date and relevant. Fines may be 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 service in the public ministry, a student may be asked to leave school.

Financial Services

Martin Luther College operates an automatic teller machine on campus. The ATMpermits withdrawals, but no deposits. The school's receptionist cashes personal checks (up to $50per day). Some local banks will cash personal checks for students who present proper identification and have an account with them.

Campus regulations reflect the concerns of our dvil 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. Radal prejudice is a form of lovelessness that the college family works with God's Word to eliminate.

Martin Luther College carries acddental injury insurance to supplement a student's own primary coverage for injuries that occur on college property or in conjunction with school sanctioned activities. 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. In general, students are strongly encouraged to carry major medical health insurance coverage!

The Vice-President for Student Lifeand the Campus Pastor counsel these students. Academic Counseling

Campus Living

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.

Martin Luther College publishes the Student Handbook on its website that contains campus regulations and guidelines. Christian prindples and courtesy form the necessary framework for day-today living on campus. By enrolling, each student declares a willingness to abide by both the letter and

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 dty 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 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. 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 II

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!" II

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 darknessdispelling 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.
