Transfer to Augustana, transform your future

Each year more than 100 students transfer to Augustana from community colleges and four-year colleges and universities.

The transfer process from Illinois colleges is especially easy because Augustana is a member of the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI). But whatever path you've taken so far, there's a place for you here. You'll find the support you need to achieve your goals.

The Transfer Student Income Assurance Program

Our Transfer Student Income Assurance Program was launched in 2021. It is a pilot program in which transfer students are guaranteed the average income for their academic field for the first five years after graduating from Augustana.

The first 10 new transfer students who apply and are admitted between Dec. 20, 2021, and Feb. 1, 2022, and enroll for spring 2022, will be eligible for the income insurance program.

This pilot program is limited and targeted as a test, involving no cost to students or to Augustana.
