Sometimes the best way to learn what an institution is all about is to plan a visit to see for yourself!

The North American Lutheran Seminary in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, welcomes you to do just that. You could plan a personalized visit or come to one of our Be a Seminarian for a Day events. During these visits, you will sit in on a class or two, meet staff and faculty, and share lunch and worship with current students. Contact us for more information.

Personalized Visits

The Admissions Office hosts individual campus visits for prospective students when requested. We are committed to your safety in visiting and the safety of our whole campus community, and with this in mind certain limitations and restrictions may apply. Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience! Questions? Contact us to plan your personalized visit.
