Tuition & Transfer Credits

Adult Undergraduate Tuition Costs

Students in the BSN Completion program are part of the Adult Undergraduate (AU) program and pay the AU tuition rate. See the full listing of (AU) tuition rates and fees on the Student Financial Services website.


Full Time vs. Half-Time

Adult Undergraduate (AU) students will need to be enrolled in 6 credits to be considered half-time and 12 credits to be considered full-time.


Whether you are transferring recently earned credits or returning to college after years away, we will work with you to simplify the process.

  • Nursing students receive up to 34-semester credits for nursing classes completed in an RN nursing program. In addition, Augsburg accepts in transfer, a maximum of 96 semester credits from community colleges.
  • Augsburg accepts transfer credit from other institutions accredited by the Higher Learning Commission that offer courses leading to an Associate of Arts or Bachelor of Arts degree.
  • Students must earn a grade of “C-” or better in order for a course to be accepted in transfer at Augsburg.
  • We provide a free one-on-one credit evaluation of your nursing degree and other college coursework. When you meet with an admissions counselor, bring a copy of your transcripts to receive an unofficial evaluation.

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.
