Auggie Plan

Completing your Associate of Arts degree or the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) at a community college?  We have several ways for you to transfer to Augsburg University and complete your Bachelor’s degree in only 2 additional years. We recommend completing your Associate of Arts degree or the MnTC in 4 semesters or less prior to starting at Augsburg as there are several academic and financial benefits of doing so.  However, if you take longer or would like to transfer to Augsburg sooner, that is perfectly fine!  Learn more about some of our programs designed to make transferring to Augsburg a smooth and affordable process.

What is the AUGGIE PLAN?

The Auggie Plan is designed for Minnesota students who want to begin their college experience at a community college but are seeking a clear and attainable path to a four-year degree. The Auggie Plan is a “2+2” plan where students spend 2 years at a community college finishing either their Associates of Arts degree or the MnTC and then 2 additional years at Augsburg completing their Bachelor’s degree.

Registering for the Auggie Plan is easy, just fill out our Auggie Plan form to let us know you are attending one of our partner community colleges.  Then work with your community college advisor to ensure you select coursework that will complete your Associates of Arts degree or the MnTC in 4 semesters or less.  Students must meet the following criteria to be Auggie Plan students.

  • Completion of Associate of Arts degree or 60 transferable credits, including the MnTC, in 4 semesters or less at one of our partner community colleges.
  • Resident of Minnesota and a graduate of a Minnesota high school

Academic Benefits of the Auggie Plan:

  • Guaranteed admission to Augsburg University
  • When students transfer to Augsburg, the Associate of Arts degree or 60 transferable credits, including the MnTC, will fulfill the liberal arts foundation coursework requirements of your Bachelor’s degree.
  • Students can complete their degree within 2 years at Augsburg in one of 45 major options (for students interested in STEM or a licensure major such as Education, we strongly recommend transferring to Augsburg after no more than one year at a community college).

Financial Benefits of the Auggie Plan:

  • If students are Pell grant eligible and meet the requirements of the Auggie Plan, they will receive the Auggie Plan Two + Two scholarship. This scholarship utilizes the Pell grant, MN state grant, and $7,500 in student loans for junior and senior year (per year). The remaining tuition is covered by Augsburg scholarships and grants.
  • Auggie Plan students may also qualify for the Full Tuition Scholars Program if they meet additional requirements.

It’s really that simple, earn your Associate of Arts degree or 60 transferable credits, including the MnTC, in 2 years at a Minnesota community college and your Bachelor’s degree in 2 additional years at Augsburg.  Auggie Plan students are strongly encouraged to live on campus, however residing on campus is not required

Full Tuition Scholars Program

The Augsburg Full Tuition Scholars program acknowledges strong academic success and is designed to make Augsburg University affordable for students with demonstrated financial need.  Incoming transfer students will receive the total cost of tuition and standard fees (does not include room, board, or books) through scholarships and grants if they meet the following criteria:

  • Cumulative unweighted college GPA of 3.50 (on a 4.0 scale)
  • Pell Grant eligible
  • Application submitted by March 15th for fall semester or November 1st for spring semester
  • Resident of Minnesota and a graduate of a Minnesota high school
  • Completion of Associate of Arts degree in 4 semesters or less

Augsburg Full Tuition Scholar transfer recipients must continue to meet satisfactory academic progress during the completion of their Associates of Arts degree at their current community college.  Augsburg Full Tuition Scholar recipients are strongly encouraged to live on campus, however residing on campus is not a requirement of the scholarship

Additional Options

We recognize that some students will take longer than 2 years to complete their Associate of Arts degree or the MnTC at their community college.  This is completely fine and we look forward to you finishing your Bachelor’s degree with us!  Your Associates of Arts degree or 60 transferable credits, including the MnTC, will fulfill the liberal arts foundation coursework requirements of your Bachelor’s degree and you are still able to receive our Transfer Scholarships upon admission along with a complete financial aid package once you submit your FAFSA or the MN Dream grant application.
