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
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. Submit your enrollment deposit 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.
2. Submit Your Bank Documents, Certification of Finances, and a Copy of Your Passport Biographical Page

4. Submit Your Residence Life Forms
If you elect to live on-campus you will need to submit your Residence Life and Meal Plan Contract.
