InCLUsive Overnight

March 21 - March 23, 2024

The InCLUsive Overnight Program was established to increase knowledge and inclusivity within the student body. We hope to foster a campus climate that encourages inclusive, cross-cultural interaction, respect for and appreciation of diversity and global awareness.

The InCLUsive Overnight Program gives admitted high school students the opportunity to visit Cal Lutheran's campus. Participants will learn what life is like as a Cal Lutheran student by staying the overnight on-campus, making connections with members of our faculty, staff, and student leaders, meeting other students considering Cal Lutheran, and interacting with current students who make Cal Lutheran their home.

This is an invitation only program. If you would like to learn more about this program, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission at or call 805-493-3135.

Scholarship Awards

The participants who come to campus will have the opportunity to compete for the InCLUsive Scholarships, which range from $1,000 to $2,500 and are renewable for up to four years. Students must attend the entire program in order to be eligible for the scholarships. Additional scholarship instructions will be given during the InCLUsive program. 

Participant Invitations

Participants for the InCLUsive Overnight Program and Scholarship are high school students admitted to Cal Lutheran for the 2024-2025 academic year. Invitees generally demonstrate commitment to inclusivity in their community and/or high school.

Participant Information

Before you accept your invitation to the InCLUsive Overnight Scholars Program, we ask that you and your family read and understand the following:

The students and staff at Cal Lutheran welcomed all of us with open arms and treated us as though we've known each other for more than just a few hours. InCLUsive not only taught me that I'm ready to grow up and start my life, but it also showed me what a true college community looked like.

InCLUsive was an awesome chance to get the feel of campus before attending, but more importantly it was an opportunity to jumpstart lasting friendships - I'm still friends with many of the people I met through InCLUsive!
