    Augustana University is not a cheap school compared to public schools. However, compared to other private liberal arts schools in the midwest, Augie is very reasonably priced. The "sticker price" is NEVER what is payed by students. Opportunities for scholarships are available to everyone.

    If you're looking for a high quality education in a small community, Augustana is the place for you. It's expensive, but they are also fairly good at offering a good amount of scholarship, so don't let the price deter you!

    It is pricey to go to Augie, but it is worth it. The education that you get from Augie is a good one. The professors care about you as individuals. They get to know you by name and try to help you do your best in their classes. We have some of the best programs in the country for the sciences, the arts, and Sign Language Interpreting (my major).

    It is pricey, but in my personal opinion, it could not be more worth it. Job placement percentages are off the charts compared to other schools.

    Even though Augie is on the pricey side it is totally worth it. The professors get to know you in every class, and also have their doors open for students to just stop in. The classes are worth the price. The professors have experience in their fields, and know what they are talking about!
