Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
WLC is the best family I have ever had. College Life and the professors are especially loving and care about you and your future. WLC has a wide variety of Majors and Minors and there is always someone to talk to and help guide you down the path God has created for you.
Mc Naughton, WI
Wisconsin Lutheran College is a great environment for people looking for a small community of genuinely caring individuals. You are open to many opportunities that are sometimes missed while attending larger state schools. Also, for such a small school, they do they very best they can to help students afford their education.
Kylee from Belvidere, IL
This small school has all I want. Personalized help with classes, majors and life on campus is always available. Private schools can be expensive, but financial aid is always a big help in finding grants and scholarships.
