Transfer Day Student Registration
Incoming transfer students in the Day Undergraduate program will meet individually with academic advisors to register for their first-term classes. These appointments are scheduled once a new student has completed the admissions process and received a completed transfer credit evaluation. These appointments can be in-person, by telephone, or by video call. For telephone and Google Hangout video chat appointments, students must be at an internet-connected computer.
To schedule, please call 612-330-1025 and request a new “New Student Registration” appointment. Students may also wish to schedule an appointment with Student Financial Services on the same day by calling 612-330-1046.
Advising and Registration
During the new student registration appointment, the academic advisor will explain Augsburg’s academic curriculum and requirements and discuss how the student’s prior academic work applies to the Augsburg degree. In addition, the student and the advisor will discuss academic plans and career goals, and work together to select and register for appropriate courses for the first semester at Augsburg.
Depending on prior course work and transfer credits, new transfer students may be required to take short placement tests in math and writing. Students with experience in Spanish, French, and German may also opt to take a language placement test. Students with disabilities may request accommodations for placement tests by calling 612-330-1053.
Students who have not taken a college-level algebra, pre-calculus or calculus class with a grade of C or better within the past five (5) years will take a short math placement test at the time of their initial advising appointment. You may bring your own calculator, or one will be provided for you. Depending on your intended major and math history, you will take a math placement test that covers basic math, algebra, and/or pre-calculus. This short multiple-choice placement test will result in a student’s Math Placement Group (MPG) and help determine appropriate courses for the first semester at Augsburg. For more information, including a practice math test, see the general Placement Tests information on the Academic Advising homepage.
Students who have transferred in a college writing class with a grade of C or better will not need to take a writing placement test.
Students who have not taken a college writing course, but who have taken the writing portion of the ACT within the last five (5) years, will not be required to complete a writing placement test.
Students who have not taken a college writing course or the writing portion of the ACT within the last five years will be asked to complete a short writing exercise either online before the intake advising appointment, or in person at the time of the appointment. In both these cases, either the ACT essay or this writing sample will be used for placement into a college writing course.
Students who have 2 or more years of language study or an extensive background in French, German, or Spanish may take an optional placement test at the time of the intake advising appointment. This online test usually takes about 15 minutes. The results can be used to waive one or both semesters of the Modern Language requirement.
Language testing is also available in many other world languages, such as Somali or Hmong. Talk with your academic advisor about these options, which can be taken for college credit.
Transfer SOAR is a required day-long orientation experience for all incoming transfer students. Students will learn about college resources and services; have a chance to ask questions; meet fellow students, faculty, and staff; and discover why being a part of the Augsburg community is so rewarding.
Transfer SOAR is normally held the Friday before the start of a new semester. Go to the Transfer SOAR website for more information.
