Austin E. Knowlton Honors Application
Complete this Austin E. Knowlton Honors Program application and submit it online as soon as possible. When filling out the application, you will select a desired visit date. Honors visit time slots are limited and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
Your on-campus honors visit can take place on:
Monday, December 9
Friday, January 17
Monday, February 10
Friday, March 14
Alternatively, you can complete an interview in our Chicagoland office (in Lombard, IL) on Friday, February 28.
Your honors visit can include additional appointments if requested below, pending availability. All interviewing students also attend an Honors luncheon and program overview at noon on the date of the interview (excluding Lombard interviews). Students who have not yet made a visit to campus are strongly encouraged to complete the Honors interview on campus.
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.
Students interviewing on December 9 or February 10 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. 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.
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.
