Fall course registration for international students

International Student Orientation (ISO) begins on Sunday, Aug. 23. You'll be on campus by this time.

ISO will provide many opportunities for you to get to know the Augustana campus and community, meet other new international students, and get to know many current students. Here is the full ISO schedule.

Your registration for fall classes, however, will be completed over the summer before you arrive on campus. Completing the steps below allows us to get started on creating your fall class schedule. Once that's done, we'll meet with you virtually to review your fall schedule.

If you've paid a tuition deposit, you can get started on the steps below right now! You'll need your student ID number and user-name, provided in an email you received from Liz Nino in our Admissions office shortly after we received your deposit. If you cannot locate this email, please contact Liz at

Be sure to watch your Augustana email for messages from us about the steps below and fall course registration. If you need help with any of these steps, please contact the office indicated in the step.

STEP 8: Share your interests and course preferences (not required for transfer students)

Before you share your interests and preferences with us, learn about the courses you'll take in your first year here.

Then complete the course interest form. Based on your responses, we will create a fall semester schedule for you. At Orientation and Registration, you’ll meet with an advisor individually to review your schedule and make changes, if necessary.

Course Interest Form

You're almost done!

Within three business days of completing Steps 1-7, you’ll get an email confirming you are ready for fall course registration. Your name will be added to the list of students who are ready for their fall schedule and a virtual advisor meeting. We will reach out to students in the order in which they complete the required steps.

While we expect most students to have their advisor meetings in June, we will continue to work with new students on this process throughout the summer. 

We look forward to working with you!
