Please note that we are changing our system software for graduate applications.  Our transition will affect applications in our system that are not submitted by Feb. 24th, as they will be deleted.  If you are thinking of starting an application, please submit your application by February 22 at 5:00PM CST to avoid losing your work. Your personal summary, recommendations, resume and any other supplemental items can be uploaded to your application until February 22 at 5:00PM CST , or emailed to gradinfo@augsburg.edu at any time, before or after your application is submitted. 
 
Our new system should be up and running by Feb. 24, 2015 and you should be able to start, save and submit application materials as normal after this date.
 
We apologize for any inconvenience—this database transition will allow us to better serve you through the admission and decision process. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our office via phone or email.
