Basic student charges

Full-time tuition for the academic year covers enrollment in 34 credits (includes credits for two semesters and one J-term.) To be considered full-time and qualify for the full-time tuition rate, students must enroll in a minimum of 12 credit hours in the fall and spring semesters. In addition to the fall credit hours (12), traditional first-year students are required to register for J-term, while returning students have the option of registering for J-term. Students who register for J-term will not incur additional tuition charges; in some cases, they may incur a program fee. J-term classes are typically 4 credits, but study-away experiences may vary.

Tuition is charged on a per-credit basis for enrollment in fewer than 12 credits in any one semester or enrollment in more credits than the maximum covered by full-time tuition. Overload fees will be assessed and charged to the student bill during the spring semester. See Costs and Financial Assistance for more information.

Overload and distribution of credits

Overload fees are assessed to students who exceed 34 credits of instruction for the academic year (two semesters and J-term), or who exceed 17 credits of instruction if enrolled in only a single semester for the academic year (either fall semester, fall semester plus J-term, or spring semester). Applied music credits for which a fee is paid are not included in the determination of overloads, but are counted toward normal tuition charges and credit loads. See the Augustana College Catalog for the complete policy on credit load, overload fees and full academic policy.

Applied music fees for all students 

First half-hour lesson each semester (1 credit): $470
Additional half-hour lesson each semester (1 credit): $296
One credit: $470; 2 credits: $766; 3 credits: $1,062; 4 credits: $1,358
Chamber music fee: $94 each semester of participation in chamber music courses.

Optional accident and sickness insurance fee

$2,837 per academic year covers the cost of participation in the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan. This insurance is optional, in most cases, as long as a waiver is completed and accepted by Sept. 13, 2022. Insurance is required for international students. If participating in intercollegiate athletics, students must purchase insurance or submit a signed waiver.

Health care/clinic fee: $150

Late registration and add/drop fee

If they do not meet the registration deadline, students will not be allowed to enroll for the semester after the fifth day of classes, will be asked to vacate campus housing and leave campus, and will be denied card access. Students also must adhere to the published drop deadlines. In extenuating circumstances, students given special permission by the Committee on Advanced Standing and Degrees (AS&D) to register after published deadlines will be subject to additional late fees:

• Late registration processing fee of $150, plus an additional $75 fee per section.
• Individual late add/drops approved by the committee on Advanced Standing and Degrees (AS&D) are subject to a $75 late fee per section, plus an additional $20 for every week beyond the published deadlines.
• A pro-rated amount may be calculated for courses under three (3) credits.

Late petition processing fee

Students who submit academic petition requests beyond communicated or published deadlines are subject to a $25 per day late processing fee. These include final exam petitions, petitions to AS&D, overload petitions, late fee waiver petitions, late submission of add/drop forms, registration load exception petitions and many other appeals, petitions and requests.

Instrument rental fee: $78 per semester

High-maintenance instrument rental fee: $117 per semester (includes bassoons, harp and string bass)

Late payment fee: Charged to students who have not made payment to the Business Office by the first day of classes each semester: $200

Students will be billed prior to the start of each semester for tuition, housing and meal plans. Payment is expected in full by the published due date unless the family utilizes the monthly payment plan offered through CashNet. Enrollment is not complete until these fees have been paid.

A non-refundable tuition deposit is required of all students new to campus by May 1. New students are affected by policies appearing in the Admissions section of the Augustana College Catalog and posted on the website. All financial obligations to the college must be met and all borrowed college property must be returned before academic records (diplomas and transcripts of grades) will be released.
