International Admissions

GRADUATE STUDENTS

Augsburg College welcomes qualified applicants to consider our Graduate Programs – offered at our Minneapolis campus and select options at our Rochester site.

As a standard course of action, we like to provide this information to all international students, especially if they would be relocating to pursue their graduate studies at Augsburg. Our programs are designed for full-time working professionals as classes tend to meet only once weekly or less frequently.

This evaluation should include the following:

  1. Analysis of credentials to determine if your degree is equivalent to an accredited U.S. bachelor’s degree.
  2. Course by course evaluation to show your complete course listing with credit values and grades received for each course.
  3. Calculation of grade point average to demonstrate your cumulative grade point average using the standard U.S. grading system, i.e., A=4.0, B=3.0, C=2.0, D=1.0, F=0.0.
  4. Translation to English (if applicable)

Evaluations can be accepted from World Education Services or any NACES accredited organization. Learn more about NACES and find a list of accredited evaluators at NACES.org
