Applying to Augustana

Augustana University


Incoming first-year student (I am a senior in high school)

Start your free application today! Applications from first-year students may be submitted upon completion of the student’s junior year of high school. The university sends the first offers of admission and academic scholarships in October and continues on a rolling basis thereafter. The next priority scholarship deadline is November 1. Students have the choice of two application options — a traditional option where the applicant submits a standardized test score and new option to apply "test-optional" where essay responses are submitted instead of a standardized test score:

Submitting test scores option

Common Application

Test optional option

Augustana evaluates students and makes admission decisions on a holistic basis. Our traditional application considers standardized test scores. Our test-optional application does not require standardized test scores. Both application methods consider grade point average, course selection, and contributions to candidates' communities. Learn more about our admission requirements and student profile. Your Application for Admission will become part of your permanent record at Augustana University. 

Transfer student (I currently attend another college)

Start your free application today! Transfer students are encouraged to apply at least one semester prior to their desired enrollment date. The university sends the first offers of admission and academic scholarships in October and continues on a rolling basis thereafter.
