Create a campus visit that suits you

You can't see it all in a day, but a custom visit lets you create a campus experience that suits you best.

Pick up to four options for your day at Augustana. Lunch counts as one option. (If this is your first visit, we recommend a campus tour as a good option.)

An Admissions session is included with all visits, but does not count as one of your custom options.

→ When you've made your choices, see the Visit calendar to sign up!
