Comprehensive Costs

College attendance consists of direct and indirect costs. Direct costs are those that will appear on your university bill. Indirect costs are those that AU won’t bill you for, but are still wise to consider in your annual budget.

Take advantage of our Net Price Calculator tool designed to give you a preview of the scholarships and financial aid available to support your Augustana education.

Because AU’s scholarship programs also assist with campus housing and an unlimited meal plan, students who opt out of one or both of those will incur a 10% reduction on each scholarship they receive from Augustana University. Federal financial aid sources will not be reduced.  

Augustana's Refund and Repayment Policy complies with federal regulations.
