The Office of Admissions is pleased to announce Augsburg Applies 2U, a new direct admissions approach that will change how we work with prospective students starting this fall.
Going forward, students who meet a certain GPA threshold will be immediately offered admission to Augsburg—in some cases, before they even apply. With less time spent reviewing applications, counselors will have more capacity to build relationships, learn about students’ experiences and goals, and personalize the admissions process. Students will face fewer barriers, allowing them to focus on finding the school where they authentically belong.
We want to emphasize that this change will not make Augsburg less selective. Students who receive direct admission would also have been admitted under our previous application process. What’s changing is our ability to reach students who might have thought college was out of reach. Instead of presenting the application process as a hurdle, we’ll start from a place of welcome.
Augsburg Applies 2U is the next step in a transformative process that has been underway for several years. Research shows that complex admissions processes are less equitable. Recent changes to simplify our application—including test-free admissions, short answer essays, and optional letter of recommendation—have accompanied Augsburg’s largest and most diverse first-year classes in history.
We are grateful for discussions and collaborations with so many campus partners and stakeholders as we worked to develop this new equity-minded model in earnest over the past year. Admissions will be meeting with several departments to provide more details in the upcoming weeks. If you have any questions or want to schedule a department meeting, please reach out to Shonna Fulford, director of undergraduate admissions, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (612) 330-1589.
