What is your accreditation?
Augsburg College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. This is the same accreditation as the University of Minnesota. To see a full list of accreditations please go to this link: http://www.augsburg.edu/academics/accreditation.html
Can I find out how my credits will transfer and how long it will take me to finish my degree?
In our individual meetings we can review previous transcripts and determine what will transfer to your degree program here at Augsburg. Based on how many courses you wish to take in a term we can estimate how long it will take to finish that degree. To set up an individual appointment please call 612-330-1001. We can meet with you early in the morning, late afternoons, early evenings and some Saturdays.
Where do I park?
If you’re a commuter, we know one of your most important questions is, “Where do I park!?” These are our suggestions:
- Purchase your parking permit from the Department of Public Safety.
- Get out your campus map. If you don’t have one in a folder or an envelope, check out our handy interactive map.
- Lot L, which is by the football field on the east side of campus, is just off the Cedar-Riverside exit from I-94. Park there and walk between the field and Kennedy Center.
- Did you lock your car? While you’re double checking, make sure to put your laptop, gym bag, and other valuables in the trunk.
- Walk through Murphy Park (historically it is Minneapolis’ first park), stop in Christensen to get a coffee at Einstein Bros. Bagels, say hi to your friends, and check your email.
- Go to class.
Lot L is the best lot for commuters, and there is almost always an open space. If you make it to campus early then you may be able to park in Lot D (a.k.a. the Tennis Court lot) or Lot K by the Ice Arena. Your commuter permit also allows you to park in the designated areas on 21st Ave. S. and 8th St. S. Be sure you’re on the blocks marked with the Augsburg Commuter Parking signs. All other street parking is monitored by the city of Minneapolis, so you may get a ticket if you are parked there beyond the posted times.
Where can I eat?
A’viands, our campus foodservice provider, provides quick and satisfying dining options throughout the day and offers several flexible meal plans.
If you want to walk a bit, there are many great restaurants close to campus like the Afro Deli, Davanni’s, Jimmy John’s, and Starbuck’s. Click on this great map and it will help you locate a place that suits your palette.
Where can I store my stuff?
If you don’t want to haul around 20 pounds of books, there are lockers available for commuters. Reserve a free locker in the Science building by contacting Campus Activities and Orientation at 612-330-1488. Or drop a quarter into one of the red lockers located on the second floor of Christensen by the ATM, and it’s yours for the day.
