Finding Your Advisers

Adviser assignments are noted in a student’s AugNet account, under Records & Registration, click on the Student Info/Contacts link. Faculty and Academic Advisers are listed, hyperlinked to contact information.

Undergraduate Degree-Seeking Advising

Professional academic advisers work directly with all new Day and Adult Undergraduate (AU) students with course selection and registration, and provides orientation to academic policies, procedures, and resources. Academic advisers work with all new first-year students for the first year at Augsburg. At the end of the first year, students declare their major and are assigned to a faculty adviser in their major department, developing the faculty student mentoring relationship.

While all undergraduate degree-seeking students are required to meet with their faculty adviser(s) each term prior to registration, students are encouraged to meet with their adviser(s) as often as necessary to support their academic progress.

AU Non-Degree Seeking Teacher Licensure Candidates Advising

Some individuals choose to complete licensure requirements without being in a degree-seeking program. These students are referred to as AU non-degree seeking students. These licensure candidates are assigned a faculty adviser in the Education Department. Students are encouraged to meet with their adviser as often as necessary to support their progress towards licensure.

Undergrad and AU Non-Degree Resources

Graduate Teacher Candidates Advising

For Minneapolis students, your academic advisor (program coordinator) is your primary point of contact as you navigate your program. Rochester students should be in regular contact with the Teacher Education Program Director in Rochester. All students can reach out to the Graduate Program Director at any time with questions, concerns, feedback.

Graduate students pursuing licensure are assigned to a faculty adviser based on respective licensure concentration. For this reason it is imperative that graduate students directly notify the Graduate Program if they wish to change licensure concentrations. Graduate students pursuing a master’s degree without licensure are assigned to the Graduate Program Director (Minneapolis) or to the Teacher Education Program Director (Rochester).

Graduate Resources

Informational sheets are meant to be a reference for graduate students pursuing initial licensure with the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT), or additional licensure with the Master of Arts in Education (MAE). This information is consolidated in a Google sheet, each license has a separate tab within the Graduate Licensure Sheets.

Graduate students may take pre-approved courses at local community colleges in order to reduce the time to completion and/or cost to completion of licensure. Contact the Graduate Program Coordinator for more information.
