Inside Augustana Student Handbook


On Aug. 24, 2020, Augustana College announced that students who move into campus housing will be asked not to leave campus until Sept. 14, and that student gatherings would be limited.

Students will be allowed to travel home, to a relative's home or to an off-campus job.

Student gatherings not sponsored or approved by the college — whether on or off campus — will be limited to 10 people or fewer.

The restriction applies to gatherings with friends, fellow students and families. All gatherings will require physical distancing and masks.

Disciplinary charges

Violation of the social gathering limit of 10 students, either on or off-campus, will result in immediate disciplinary charges along with interim actions that take effect immediately. 

These interim actions may include:

Interim suspension: The student is immediately suspended from campus and from attending classes.

Interim separation from campus: Immediately upon notice, the student is not allowed to be present on campus property, including residence halls;  status will be moved to remote learner.

Interim withdrawal of campus privileges: Immediately upon notice, the student will be unable to participate in specifically identified campus privilege(s).

Interim actions stay in place while the matter proceeds through the Student Code of Conduct process.
