International Application Procedure
Admission of non-U.S. citizens to Augustana College is based upon overall academic strength as well as the financial ability to meet the cost of an Augustana education. International students are advised to enroll fall term, which is the beginning of the school year and gives international students greater opportunities for orientation and participation.

- Official TOEFL or IELTS scores sent directly from the testing agency (TOEFL minimum: 550 on written test; 80 on internet test. IELTS minimum 6.5).

- A personal statement/writing sample explaining why the student wishes to study in the U.S. at Augustana College (Illinois)
