Luther Connect Program

The Connect program is designed to help you connect your high school learning with the knowledge and skills you need for University. It will also help you connect with peers, mentors, and staff members who will help you along your journey through University. This is a collaborative program being offered by Campion College and Luther College.

There are two non-credit classes available through Luther Connect. Each one is 50 minutes per day, 5 days a week. One is a literacy class, intended to prepare you to read critically and write essays. This is likely to be most useful for Arts and MAP students. The other is a numeracy class, intended to prepare you to succeed in your introductory calculus class, and is likely to be most useful for Science students.

Please note that we anticipate Luther Connect will be very popular, so not all applicants will necessarily be placed in the program. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Only students registered through Luther College and Campion College will be considered for the Connect program. If you are a Campion student, contact your academic advisor for information about how to apply for Campion Connect.
