Pre-enrollment earned credit for first-year students (advanced placement)
First-year students who earn college-level credit prior to the first term of enrollment at Augustana may transfer this credit to the college as follows:
Dual enrollment credit:
Students who dual enroll with a local college while in high school have no limit on those college level credits. Courses are subject to official transfer evaluation by the college registrar, see Transcript Policies for details on how to send your transcripts for evaluation.
A maximum of 24 credits of combined testing credit may be applied toward the degree. This includes a combination of Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), an A-Level.
First-year students who have earned more than 24 credits of testing credit have until the end of their first semester of enrollment to declare their 24 credits of testing credits. Once applied to the record these credits may not be changed and it is an irreversible decision. See below for additional policies governing pre-enrollment credit. See the college catalog
