    Although the sticker price for Luther College may seem very big, the financial services are very useful and very good at finding grants and scholarships for students in need. Most students that attend Luther College for less than the cost of attending a public school. With the amount that the students do pay, Luther uses that money wisely on the students by providing the best meals, performances, dorms, security they can find.
