Transferring to Augsburg
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 free 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 credit by exam, or 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.
