Additionally, if you would like us to visit during the spring, please reach out to your admission representative, you can find details here.

Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship 

Our Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship (VAPA) application is now open! Incoming first-year and transfer applicants with superior talent in the areas of Music, Theatre Arts, or Visual Art can apply and audition for a VAPA Scholarship prior to enrolling at Cal Lutheran.

Music and Theatre Arts Scholarships can be awarded up to full tuition and are renewable for subsequent years. In order to submit a VAPA application, students must first apply for admission to California Lutheran University. 


Cal Lutheran receives nearly $3M in grants
California Lutheran University was awarded nearly $3 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Education to help students with career pathways and professional development! The Vocational Identity and Talent in Academic Learning (VITAL) program, will help to increase retention and completion rates among Hispanic and low-income students, and help prepare them for careers. 
Cal Lutheran is now live on Unibuddy! Your students can reach out and connect with our very own students. Our current students are eager to share their experiences about Cal Lutheran and answer any questions your students may have! After your students create their account, they can change their contact preferences under “Settings”, if they would like to receive responses via email, SMS or WhatsApp. 


Our world-class training facilities are highly regarded within our community. The Los Angeles Rams have also called Cal Lutheran home for the past few years, using our campus as their practice facility.

This past summer we also began hosting Angel City Football Club — they’re the L.A. based expansion team for the National Women’s Soccer League with a star-studded ownership team including Natalie Portman, Abby Wambach, Mia Hamm, and Candace Parker!


Counselors are welcome to bring students to our campus for group tours! We also host guided visits and self-guided visits for students and families.
