Who We Are

Luther College is a federated college at the University of Regina, and offers degree programs in the social sciences and humanities, sciences, and fine arts, with excellent pre-professional program options. With an enrolment of approximately 650 students, Luther College at the University of Regina is committed to retaining the personal atmosphere, individual attention, and sense of community that only a small university can offer.

The College provides the highest quality of teaching and fosters outstanding research. Its students are U of R students, pay the same tuition and fees, and receive a U of R degree. Students benefit from Luther’s student-centered approach to teaching and its small classes. Luther’s optional chaplaincy program nurtures intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth for all students, including those from a religious background other than Christianity.

Whether pursuing pre-professional studies or a degree, students receive one-on-one academic advising throughout their time at Luther. The College is known for making the transition from high school to university easy. Designed to give students a successful start to university, optional groups of courses, called Bundles, can be chosen when registering for first semester.

Its excellent support for students extends to financial support as well. Luther students can apply for additional scholarships along with all the awards available to them as U of R students, while Luther’s residence, The Student Village at Luther College, is a cost-effective option open to all students and offers a number of residence awards for first-year students.

Luther College is a fully accredited member of Universities Canada.

What is Federation?

In 1971, Luther College brought its university program into a federation with the University of Regina (U of R) in order to provide expanded choices for students.

Academic integration with a leading university means:

  • Luther College students can take courses from other federated colleges (Campion College, FNUniv) and from the U of R.
  • Federated college students take programs established by the University Senate and receive degrees from the U of R. (Luther College is a full member of the University Senate.)
  • Eligible U of R and other federated college students can take Luther College classes.
  • Luther students have access to all of the financial aid and student support programs of the U of R, as well as all courses and instructional support.
  • Federated colleges compliment the University Registrar's Office by offering personalized academic counselling.
  • Federated college faculty augment the teaching resources of University departments. A federated college makes the U of R that much more accessible for those who want to study in a smaller community of students and scholars.
  • Luther assists students in adjusting to the atmosphere of the larger urban centre and academic campus when they are part of a small, personalized atmosphere.
  • Luther College emphasises interdisciplinary studies.
  • Federated college libraries complement University holdings by maintaining their own specialized collection of books, journals, computers, and e-resources.
  • Luther complements the University's Counselling Services by providing chaplains for counselling services.
  • Special student support services are available, including student orientations, study skills seminars, writing workshops, peer support programs, student loans assistance, and special scholarships and bursaries.

Federated colleges are administratively and financially independent of the U of R.
