Helping to guide you through paying for seminary

Our goal is that no student graduates with a burden of insurmountable debt. We offer financial assistance, which is available for each network campus and must be applied for individually. Moreover, all students accepted into the Network are eligible for additional financial assistance based on a case-by-case/individualized basis.

Concordia Lutheran Seminary (Edmonton, AB)

An arrangement with Concordia Lutheran Seminary in Edmonton, Alberta allows NALC candidates who live in Canada to pursue a residential, Lutheran education without having to move across national lines. In this partnership NALC candidates—women and men—may stay in Canada by enrolling as students at Concordia, Edmonton, taking the full curriculum of academic coursework offered by Concordia, Edmonton toward the MDiv degree, with a small number of recommended classes through the NALS. Candidacy and internship arrangements for these students will be supervised by the NALC’s Candidacy Committee, in conversation with Concordia, Edmonton faculty. The result will be candidates with an MDiv degree and spiritual formation from an excellent, accredited Lutheran seminary, who will also have had to deal with less of the upheaval and complications associated with moving to a different country.
