What Students Are Saying

4.36 Average Rating
I have heard that the science classes are very hard. But as for the classes that I have taken so far, the work is hard but well worth the effort. If you work hard and try your best, you will succeed. This is not a school for slackers.

You have to be willing to do some work. There is usually reading that must be done for a majority of the classes, and of course there are tests and papers to be done. Many of the classes are discussion based, and it is expected that you have read the material and are prepared for class. It can be difficult sometimes, but the professors are more than willing to help find ways for you to succeed.
Lydia from Saint Cloud, MN
Coursework can be hard, specifically during interim or J-term. Students are pushed to succeed in the classroom, so that they will succeed in the real world.

classes at augustana are not for those who want to slack off and slide by in college. the classes are taught in a manner that is understandable and all of the professors are excellent at what they do. classes at augustana are not impossible, but you have to do a lot of studying to get good grades. augustana offers free tutors, and many of the sciences have specialized tutors available on certain days. over all, augustana is a challenging school, but the education you will receive is worth the hard work.

I went to a pretty prestigious high-school so I felt very prepared, but I am still working very hard to keep my grades up. They challenge you, but the benefits are 100% worth it.
Tessa from Rapid City, SD
I'm not going to lie - it's tough. Now don't get too scared; it's not Harvard or anything. But it's definitely more challenging than community and state colleges, and a lot of the private colleges in the area. This academic rigor can only benefit you though. The professors know what they're talking about; and they're always available to help (a privilege you won't get at bigger schools).
