Augustana College enrolls approximately 2,500 full-time students from across the United States and around the world, with a little more than 10 percent from the Quad Cities. These students reflect a wide variety of economic, religious, ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds. Seventy-one percent live in college-operated residences while another 20 percent live off-campus in private rental properties. Approxi-mately eight percent commute from their homes.
While the academic progress of each student is most important, extra-curricular activity enhances the academic experience. Augustana offers a wide range of opportunities designed to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of students during the college years.
As a private institution, Augustana exercises its right to require civil behavior of its employees and students, and to enforce community standards through judicial or administrative action. The college administration reserves the right to dismiss and/or to refuse further registration to any student whenever, in its judgment, the general welfare of the college community or the individual student seems to call for such action.
Internal regulations of the college pertaining to such matters as student conduct, parking, residential life and class attendance can be found online in the handbooks Inside Augustana and Inside Our Halls and Houses.
