First-year students not transferring from another institution have three options for their application timeline: 1). Early Decision—apply by Nov. 1, deposit by Jan. 15; 2). Early Action—apply by Nov. 1, deposit by May 1; or 3). Regular Decision—apply by April 1, deposit by May 1. The Early Decision application is a binding commitment meant for students who are sure to enroll if accepted. Early Action also is a good option for students who want to receive their financial aid packages and other communications from the college sooner, which can help with college selection and planning.
Students interested in transferring to Augustana use the same application and process as high school seniors, except without the option of applying Early Decision. Transfer students may apply as Early Action applicants (apply by Nov. 1, deposit by May 1) or Regular Decision (apply by April 1, deposit by May 1). Transfer students must have completed at least one semester of college-level coursework. Admission is based on overall academic strength, with a preferred minimum transferable GPA of 2.50.
Augustana offers special visit days throughout the year: Summer Visit Days, the Fall Visit Day and Viking Visits, Department Open House and Scholarship Competitions, and more. Students also may schedule an individual visit on a convenient date, and can customize their visit to sit in on a class, meet with a professor or coach, attend an event and/or visit CORE to learn about career advising and Augie Choice. Special visit days offer more programming, and students who participate in a formal visit event become eligible for a Campus Visit Grant up to $4,000 ($1,000 each year at Augustana).
