Luther North Students Are College Bound!

Luther North College Prep can help you earn BOTH college and high school credits by taking college level courses in the Concordia Advantage Program. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students. Students will fulfill their high school graduation requirements, while also earn credit for the college or university of choice. Taking a Concordia University Chicago course costs a Luther North student $120 and the course will transfer to most universities.

Luther North and Concordia University have an academic partnership which allows qualified junior and senior high school students to have an opportunity to earn college credit and high school course credit simultaneously. Benefits to earning dual-credit include access to expanded course offerings while in high school, a facilitated transition between high school and post-secondary institutions, enhanced student success, shorter time to college degree, and cost savings. General Education courses are offered online, on campus, and onsite. Currently Mrs. Rundio (Advanced Placement English) and Mrs. Lindgren (Advanced Placement Calculus) are certified CUC adjunct instructors, and students who enroll in those courses have the opportunity to earn college credit onsite at Luther North. The reduced cost for dual credit courses is $40 per credit hour (currently $120 for Advanced Placement Calculus or Advanced Placement English). Students who subsequently enroll at Concordia University Chicago as a full time undergraduate will receive a tuition grant back for dual credit tuition at Concordia Chicago. Students will also have access to various aspects of campus life, such as library use, entrance into games, etc. Concordia Chicago is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and courses are generally transferable. Following high school graduation, Concordia will send a transcript of the credits to the college or university of the student’s choice at the student’s request.
