Why Augsburg?

Augsburg is the perfect place for high school students who are motivated and seeking a college experience with smaller class sizes, hands-on professors, and learning that goes beyond the classroom.

Fall 2024 PSEO students who do well in their classes will be guaranteed admission after high school graduation through the Augsburg Applies to YOU direct admission pathway.

If you choose to continue your journey at Augsburg after graduating from high school, you’ll have access to the wide range of scholarships that we offer our Undergraduate students. Some scholarships can even cover the full cost of tuition!



Augsburg University educates students to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders. Our intentional focus on social justice and diversity means that Auggies enter the workforce ready to make a difference in their communities and the world.

About Me: Helping students achieve their education goals has always been a passion of mine. I’ve worked at Augsburg since 2010 and have seen first hand the transformation that students experience while at Augsburg.  I believe the world needs more Auggies and am excited when students can see themselves here.  In addition to my job I love spending time with my family and all the fun crafts we can do.

Why I love Augsburg: Augsburg students are different.  Our intentional focus on social justice and diversity has brought students, passionate in these areas together and the conversations and connections made are life changing.
