A Tremendous Value
“You get what you pay for” can be good advice, but it’s not always true. Better advice is to seek maximum value for minimum cost. Many Lutheran schools are tremendous values. Parents who choose Lutheran schools get more than they pay for because their children receive a quality education together with the gospel of Jesus at a low cost. The tuition at most Lutheran schools reflects the goal to freely share the gospel, not turn a profit. Like Lutheran schools, the MLC graduate studies program is a tremendous value.
At MLC, graduate students receive more than they pay for. MLC’s graduate program exists to serve Lutheran schools and teachers, not to generate revenue for the college, so its tuition reflects MLC’s value of service to the church. For that reason tuition is set at the lowest possible cost needed to provide high-quality education. At $250 per credit, no other institution offers a more affordable way to earn a high-quality graduate degree.
