Costs and Financial Assistance
Augustana College publishes an annual Schedule of Student Charges as a supplement to this catalog, available here.
Tuition and Fees
Full-time tuition for only one term in an academic year covers enrollment in 8 to 11 credits of instruction. Full-time tuition for two terms in one academic year covers enrollment in up to 22 credits, an average of 11 credits per term with at least 8 credits each term (e.g. 10+12 will not result in an overload charge). Full-time tuition for the academic year covers enrollment in up to 33 credits (e.g. 12+9+12 will not result in an overload charge).
Classes dropped after the midpoint of each term will be included in determining overload charges. Tuition for fewer than 8 credits or for credits in addition to the maximum covered by full-time tuition (including audited courses) is charged on a per-credit basis.
Required fees, such applied music fees, are charged as appropriate. All fees are detailed in the Schedule of Student Charges. Student Accident and Sickness Insurance is optional (though required for international students). Participants in intercollegiate athletics must either purchase the insurance or submit a signed waiver.
Room and Board in Residence Halls
All resident students are billed for room and board; charges for accommodations are detailed in the Schedule of Student Charges. The à la carte board charges cover typical food requirements for one term and are adequate for most students. Additional food credit may be purchased, if needed, and any unused credit is refunded at the end of the spring term.
Full-time students are billed prior to the start of each term for tuition, fees, and room and board. The college does not offer a deferred payment plan (see Monthly Payment Plan below). If payments are not received by the beginning of classes, a late payment fee is assessed. Enrollment is not complete until these fees have been paid.
Overload charges will be assessed when the number of enrolled credits exceeds the number covered by full-time tuition (33 credits per year; 11 per term if the student is not enrolled the entire year).
Students new to the campus are affected by policies appearing in the Admission section of this catalog.
All students new to the campus must pay a tuition deposit by May 1 for the ensuing year. This deposit is non-refundable.
All ﬁnancial obligations to the college must be met and all borrowed college property returned before academic records (diplomas and transcripts of grades) can be released.
Monthly Payment Plans
For students and families who wish to pay the cost of a college education in equal monthly payments, Augustana College offers a monthly tuition plan provided by TuitionPay. Pamphlets describing the monthly tuition plan are available from the Business Ofﬁce upon request.
For Registration Change from Full-time to Part-time
A refund is computed as of the date a completed drop slip is received in the Ofﬁce of the Registrar. A student whose status changes from full-time to part-time during days 1 and 2 of the term is eligible for 100 percent of the difference between full-time and part-time tuition. Day 3 and beyond, no refund is given. Regardless of drop date, a student who never attended a dropped class will be considered a part-time student and will have his or her financial assistance adjusted based on part-time enrollment.
For Registration Change for Part-time Students
Students who are enrolled part-time are eligible for a 100 percent refund during days 1 and 2, with no refund given day 3 and beyond.
For withdrawal from Augustana policies and refunds for withdrawal policies.
