There are many employment opportunities available both on- and off-campus for Luther Seminary students. Students are encouraged to supplement their financial aid through employment as a way to help defray the costs of a seminary education. 

Beginning with the 2007/2008 academic year Luther Seminary no longer participates in the Federal Work Study Program. Therefore, completion of the federal financial aid form (FAFSA) is no longer required to pursue a position on campus. See the student employment guidelines for more information.
