New students in the Adult Undergraduate (AU) program will meet with academic advisors to register for their first-term classes. Once a new student has completed the admissions process and received a completed transfer credit evaluation, call 612.330.1025 to schedule. These appointments can be in-person, by telephone, or by video call. For telephone and Google Hangout video chat appointments, students must be at an internet-connected computer.
Students may also wish to schedule an appointment with Student Financial Services on the same day by calling 612-330-1046.
Advising and Registration
An academic advisor will explain Augsburg’s academic curriculum and requirements and discuss how the student’s prior academic work applies to the Augsburg degree. In addition, the student and the advisor will discuss academic plans and career goals, and work together to select and register for appropriate courses for the first semester at Augsburg.
Depending on prior course work and transfer credits, incoming AU students may be required to take a short placement test in math. Students with experience in Spanish, French, and German may also opt to take a language placement test. Students with disabilities may request accommodations for placement tests by calling 612-330-1053.
Incoming AU students who have not taken a college-level algebra, pre-calculus or calculus class for a grade of C or better within the past five (5) years will take a short math placement test, either at the time of the intake advising appointment, or within their first term at the University. You may bring your own calculator, or one will be provided for you. Depending on your math history, you will take a math placement test that covers basic math and algebra. This short multiple-choice placement test will result in a student’s Math Placement Group (MPG) and helps determine appropriate courses for the first semester at Augsburg.
For more information, including a practice math test, see the Mathematics Placement page.
AU students who have 2 or more years of language study or an extensive background in French, German, or Spanish may take an optional placement test. This online test usually takes about 15 minutes. The results can be used to waive one or both semesters of the Modern Language requirement.
Language testing is also available in many other world languages, such as Somali or Hmong. Talk with your academic advisor about these options, which can be taken for college credit.
AU New Student Orientation
AU New Student Orientation (NSO) is a recommended orientation experience for incoming students starting at Augsburg University. It is designed to help with the transition to Augsburg specifically, and the return to college for adult learners more generally. Students will learn about college resources and services; have a chance to ask questions; meet fellow students, faculty, and staff; and discover why being a part of the Augsburg community is so rewarding.
Your admissions counselor will be in touch with details as NSO approaches this fall.
