Completion and Retention


At Free Lutheran Bible College, 74% of the first-time, full-time students that began the two-year program in the fall of 2019 graduated* in the spring of 2021.

87% of students attending FLBC during the fall of 2020 returned for the fall semester in 2021.

While most students enrolled at the Free Lutheran Seminary complete their Master’s Degree in four years, those not pursuing ordination can finish in three years as no internship is required in that situation. Since 2017, 100% of the students entering the seminary have graduated within three to five years of starting the program. Additionally, 100% of these students were working in jobs related to ministry within three months of graduation.

*Graduation rate is the percentage of FLBC’s first-time, first-year undergraduate students who completed the program within 3 years (150% of the expected time for the program).
