New Students' Information

Welcome to The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia!

We are excited to have you as a part of this community, and we pray that your transition into life here at the seminary is a positive one. We do our best to provide you with important information to help make that possible.

We have prepared the following site to help you prepare for this transition, including a calendar of deadlines and important dates that will help you in returning the forms on time. Make sure you visit each of the various links at the bottom of this page.

Ultimately, it is your responsibility to make sure that you are prepared to begin seminary, but we understand that getting ready for seminary can sometimes seem overwhelming. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have questions or concerns.

Again, we are delighted to have you with us. May your time at LTSP be a rich and fulfilling experience.
