We look forward to welcoming you to campus as a fellow Auggie!
Now that you’ve been admitted to Augsburg College it is time to prepare for your arrival. Here are your next steps:
1. Confirm Your Intent to Enroll and Pay Your Deposit(s)
To save a spot here at Augsburg, international students must pay the non-refundable $150 enrollment deposit by the deadline indicated on your admission letter. If you elect to live on campus you will also need to submit the $200 housing deposit. Submit your housing and/or your enrollment deposit(s) today!
****International students are encouraged to select “foreign currency” as the method of payment for their housing and/or enrollment deposit(s) in order to avoid potentially large credit card fees. These wire transfers are made using Western Union and are generally less expensive. Students who prefer to select credit card as their method of payment are advised to contact their credit card company before making payment to confirm any fees that will be assessed.****
To learn how to transfer money using Western Union please review this step-by-step instructional sheet.
3. Submit Your Bank Documents, Certification of Finances, and a Copy of Your Passport Biographical Page
In order to receive your I-20, proof of funding demonstrated by bank documents current within three months and the completed Augsburg Certification of Finances form is needed. The copy of your passport is used in issuing your I-20.
4. Activate Your Augnet Account
After paying your enrollment deposit you can activate your Augnet account. Once you have activated your account you will have access to your email, ability to change your password, register for classes, pay tuition, access class and library resources, view grades, access your academic records, and more. Learn more with this step-by-step guide.
5. Apply for a F-1 Student Visa or Transfer Your SEVIS Record
As a student coming from outside the U.S., you need to apply for a F-1 Student Visa. To help you we have created an overview of the process. Of course, if you have any questions email us right away.
Students transferring from a U.S. high school or college/university: you need to have your SEVIS record transferred from your current institution to Augsburg. The SEVIS Transfer form must be completed by you and your Designated School Official; make sure to provide your Augsburg letter of admissions when requesting the transfer.
6. Submit Final and Official Transcripts
Augsburg must receive all final and official transcripts. The documents may be sent directly to Augsburg or you may submit them on the first day of International Student Orientation. Failure to submit the official transcripts will effect your enrollment at Augsburg.
7. Submit Proof of Immunizations and Student Account Disclosure Forms
Complete and return the Immunization and Student Account Disclosure forms prior to arriving to campus or on the first day of International Student Orientation. Failure to submit these forms will effect your enrollment at Augsburg.
8. Let Us Know When You Will Be Arriving
Complete this short form so we know when you will arrive in Minneapolis.
9. Look Forward to International Student Orientation
Check your admissions letter for the dates of International Student Orientation. Make it a habit to check your email (Augsburg and personal) for important messages from us. Don’t forget to connect with fellow incoming Auggies through our Facebook page!
