Augustana offers three kinds of visits:
1. Special visit days
These days combine the best of an individual visit with some of our special events.
October and November
It Begins with "A" for admitted seniors
2. Daily visits
Come on your own on a weekday or Saturday. You'll get an introduction to Augustana, a campus tour and information session and the option to go to our CORE office to learn more about career advising and Augie Choice.
If you would prefer a custom visit, you can take a tour, observe a class, meet a professor, coach or admissions staff, go to a music or athletic practice, eat lunch and more.
Starting May 1 of your junior year in high school, you also may schedule an admissions interview on a custom visit.
3. Group visits
Come with a school group, team, church or other organization. Tour of campus, presentations by admissions and/or financial assistance, college search workshop. Request a group visit.
Get the most from your visit
The best time for an individual visit is on a weekday while classes are in session. This allows you the most options for visiting classes, meeting faculty and sampling student life.
We highly recommend including an admissions interview. Typically scheduled during an individual visit after May 1 of a student's junior year, students meet one-on-one with an admissions counselor. Interviews are available Monday-Friday.
For the best opportunities on campus we often suggest avoiding: Finals weeks and breaks. See our academic calendar for this year's schedule. Be sure to check our calendar for other special events you wouldn't want to miss.
If it's raining or snowing, campus tours will continue. In case of lightning or severe weather, tours will not go out or will end as soon as the conditions begin. Proper precautions, such as a shortened tour, might be also be taken in the event of extreme temperatures.
In general, the college's operations will continue in all but the most severe weather.
