Financial aid

The primary forms of financial aid for the summer term are loans and grants.

  • The Federal Direct Loan Program-students who have not used their entire loan eligibility for the academic year may be eligible to borrow the remainder of their loan eligibility for summer.
  • Private Education Loans-students may qualify for a private loan. A credit worthy co-signer is required
  • Federal Parent PLUS Loans-Parents may be eligible to borrow through the PLUS loan for summer.
  • Federal Pell Grants-students may be eligible for grant assistance through the Pell Grant program.

Augustana institutional funds are not available for summer. Contact the Office of Financial Aid at 309-794-7449 to determine if you are eligible to borrow through the loan or grant programs.

If you are receiving federal financial aid for the summer term, it is vital to check with financial aid before dropping a course. Federal regulations could result in your owing the college if you withdraw from a course, or fail to begin a course for which you have registered.

Acadeum consortial and transfer courses

Augustana students have the option of enrolling in summer consortial courses and pre-approved online transfer courses from other four-year colleges and universities through Acadeum. Acadeum courses are billed at the same rate as Augustana online courses, $587 per credit.

Augustana helps facilitate the enrollment and billing process for Acadeum courses, however, students enrolled in Acadeum courses become students at the partnering institution for the duration of the course and are subject to that institution's policies and procedures.

Augustana students have two options for how they can utilize Acadeum courses. As part of the approval process for each student applicant, Augustana staff will make the final decision about which option is appropriate or acceptable for each student.

1. Consortial Courses.  Augustana students in good academic standing can take consortial online summer courses through Acadeum. These courses are marked as "consortial" within the Acadeum site. A consortial course will count as an Augustana course. So, while a summer consortial course will be offered by a different college or university, consortial courses are deemed as fully equivalent to a specified Augustana course, the course will appear on the student's Augustana transcript as an Augustana course (though these courses will be designated with a specialized section number in order to indicate that the course was not actually taken at Augustana), and the grade that a student receives in a consortial course will impact the student's Augustana GPA. Note that consortial courses cannot be counted among the minimum of 60-credits of in-residence courses that Augustana students require for graduation, and consortial courses cannot be included among the last 12 credits a student applies toward graduation.

2. Transfer Courses. Students in the midst of an academic suspension from Augustana may not take consortial courses through Acadeum, but they may take courses through Acadeum that are considered "transfer courses." Augustana students in good standing may also take non-consortial courses through Acadeum. If a student takes a course that is not marked as a consortial course on the Acadeum site, the course will be treated as a transfer course. As with other transfer courses, students should complete the petition to transfer credit form at least two weeks prior to the start date of the course in order to ensure adequate time for processing the petition. Students who wish to take coursework that falls in their final 12 credits towards the degree are also required to meet this same timeline by requesting permission to waive that policy by formal petition the Committee on Advanced Standing and Degrees. Once the course is completed, students should arrange to have the official transcripts sent directly to Augustana from the other institution by mail or by official e-delivery. The Office of the Registrar has complete information on transferring coursework.

Students may explore the Acadeum Site and request consortial or transfer courses through the site. Augustana staff from the Advising office or the Academic Affairs office will review each student request and either approve or deny the request based on the student's academic standing or on the nature of the chosen course. 

If you are searching for a specific course to meet general education or major/minor requirements and do not find the course listed on the Acadeum site, contact Kylee Stuever, Advisor and Transfer Coordinator, who can work with you to identify other course offerings. receiving federal financial aid for the summer term, it is vital to check with financial aid before dropping a course. Federal regulations could result in your owing the college if you withdraw from a course, or fail to begin a course for which you have registered.
