The Interview

An interview with an Augustana faculty member will complete your Austin E. Knowlton Honors Program application, and provide you a better sense of the honors experience at Augustana. Interviews provide an opportunity for you to interact with the professors that may be teaching you in the honors program. 

Please schedule your interview on the form below. If a date is not listed on the application, all time slots have been filled for that day. We highly suggest you make the most of your time on campus. Use the form below to indicate other appointments and activities you are interested in while at Augustana for your honors visit.

Students interviewing on December 8, March 16 or March 25 and wishing to complete an overnight stay the night before must also fill out our overnight registration form at www.augustana.edu/overnight.

The Writing Sample

Please submit a typed sample of your best academic writing, such as a research paper or analytic essay. We are looking for examples of  your most complex thinking, not necessarily a paper on which you received an "A" grade.

Visit Confirmation

After submitting the Honors application, you will receive an honors visit confirmation email detailing the time and date of your honors visit. You will also receive an email confirming your overall admissions visit from our campus visit coordinators.

Honors Selection Notification

We will send a letter informing you of whether you have been selected for Logos or Foundations in early April.
