On September 4, 1962, Augustana Theological Seminary, Grand View Seminary, Chicago Lutheran Theological Seminary, and Suomi Theological Seminary consolidated to form the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC). For the next five years, the Lutheran School of Theology operated from two locations: the Augustana campus in Rock Island and Chicago Lutheran campus in Maywood, Ill.
LSTC established the International Student Affairs Offce (ISAO) in response to the growing number of international students in the community. The director for international student affairs, as part of the Student Services Offce, coordinates orientations and transition programs and assists international students with visas and other concerns.
Students at LSTC may be housed in one of our 129 vintage apartments. These one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments may be rented by individuals or families, or shared with other students. Even pets are welcome in our private apartments. Our residential community is located one block from the main campus building, and is ecumenical by design. Students from other area seminaries and divinity schools live right alongside LSTC students.
The JKM Library provides alumni of McCormick, LSTC and its predecessor schools access to the ATLA Religion Database (ATLA RDB®) and its complementary full text database, ATLA Serials® (ATLAS®).
LSTC has three student government organizations:
The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago is accredited by the Commission on Accrediting of the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS) and the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
