How to Transfer Credits

So you want to be an Auggie? We’re glad you’re on your way! Whether you’re coming from a two-year community college, a four-year university or college, or another school, we want your transfer experience to be stress-free.

Augsburg is a transfer-friendly school. That means we work with many metro-area colleges and schools in greater Minnesota to ease your transition from one school to another. We start by offering a one-on-one unofficial transcript evaluation to show you what courses and credits will transfer to Augsburg. Just schedule an appointment with an admissions counselor, and tell them you want to transfer to Augsburg.

If an Augsburg degree is in your future, our admissions counselors can help you plan courses now — at your current school — to achieve the best transfer credits possible. Our articulation agreements will help you identify the courses you should take now to meet specific major requirements at Augsburg. And our transfer guides will also help you find liberal arts courses, like Algebra or English, that will be accepted at Augsburg.

We also accept AP, IB, and credit by exam (CLEP – College Level Examination Program) credit. This allows you to earn credit for previous work or for experience that may not be reflected on your transcript.

MnSCU Transfer Students

Students transferring from the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system who have completed the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum, have earned the Associate of Arts degree from MnSCU, and have a 2.0 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale) from the degree-granting institution will be given transfer status as outlined in the course catalog.

Advanced Transfer Students

Students who enter Augsburg with 13 or more Augsburg credits (52 semester credits) accepted in transfer are considered Advanced Transfer Students. The Augsburg Core Curriculum will be adjusted for advanced transfer students as outlined below:

• Complete REL 300 instead of REL 100 and REL 200

• Waiver of Augsburg Seminar requirement

• Waiver of Engaging Minneapolis requirement

• Waiver of the Entry-level Critical Thinking Assessment

• Waiver of one Lifetime Fitness requirement

All Augsburg Core Curriculum requirements not mentioned above remain unchanged for advanced transfer students.

*Waivers for advanced transfer are determined at the time of initial entry into Augsburg and will not be granted for courses completed after initial enrollment.
