Admitted Student Day

Saturday, April 18, 2020

March 16, 2020
In order to minimize the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) within the Cal Lutheran community and surrounding area, we have canceled all campus events (including Admitted Student Day), visits, and tours. As a result, our campus is closed to visitors until further notice.

Admitted students will be hearing from their admission counselors over the coming weeks, and we will be making every opportunity to get all of your questions about life at Cal Lutheran answered.

If you have any immediate questions, please do not hesitate to text, email, or call your admission counselor. You can find their contact information here.

You can also schedule a time to speak with a Cal Lutheran admission counselor via Zoom or Phone.




Have you been admitted to Cal Lutheran? Congrats! Admitted Student Day is the ultimate opportunity for you to visit campus and create a customized experience to help you discover Cal Lutheran.

Following the energizing kick-off of our Welcome Session, you get to choose among an array of session topics that meet your interests. After that, head on over to the Academic and Involvement Fairs where you can personally interact with Cal Lutheran students, faculty, and staff while taking a moment to grab lunch.
