Late Arrivals

As you already know, Augustana’s term is broken into a 3-week session at the start of the term followed by an 11-week session. Due to the condensed nature of the 3-week courses, you should plan to arrive on campus prior to the start of the term to avoid missing an insurmountable amount of course material. If you are unable to arrive on campus by the first day of classes, you must contact your Admissions Advisor as soon as possible!
