Luther Seminary is monitoring the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to minimize disruptions to teaching and learning while providing a safe environment for faculty, students, and staff who study, live, and work at Luther Seminary. We give thanks for the seminary’s COVID-19 task force, the enterprise leadership team, and our entire community of students, faculty, and staff who are supporting one another during this difficult and challenging time.
If you will be coming to campus for any reason, please remember to follow our current guidelines.

Recently, the U.S. Congress allocated funding to colleges and universities to assist students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) was created to enable colleges and universities to provide cash grants to current students for expenses related to disruptions to their education due to COVID-19. Public reporting for the student portion, the institutional portion and the FIPSE grant are available on the CARES Act Emergency Funds for Students page.
Update on Summer Courses
Upon the recommendation of the Educational Leadership Committee, our summer courses will continue online. This is due primarily to the fact that students travel from across the country and given the pace of vaccination and the course of the virus, it is not prudent to gather folks until we have assurances that the virus is indeed under better control.
In August, Professor Andy Root is offering a travel course on Bonhoeffer in Germany. We hope that by August borders will be open, and this trip will be able to proceed. Interested students should register when summer registration opens on April 13. Confirmation of the trip will be made by July 1. When you register, please also hold the week of October 13-November 5 open in case the trip needs to be postponed. If the trip isn’t able to proceed in August, and you’re unable to make the fall session, you may drop out of the course at that point.
