About Augustana University

Founded in 1860, Augustana is a selective, comprehensive university affiliated with the Lutheran Church. With 53 majors, 41 minors and 15 pre-professional programs for undergraduates, along with graduate degree and continuing education programs, the University is committed to enriching lives and fostering development by combining a foundation in the liberal arts with professional skill and advanced study.

Augustana serves more than 1,800 students from 30 states and 38 countries. Most are part of our residential community and call our 100-acre campus home. Our graduate and continuing education programs serve students online and during times that are convenient for adult learners.

Questions of faith and values blend comfortably into all aspects of life at Augustana. Because the Lutheran tradition values every student’s gift for learning, academic integrity is never compromised by slanting education to agree with a particular religious bias. All faith traditions are welcome here. By encouraging students to make career decisions that are consistent with their own faith and values, Augustana educates students for a wide range of careers and professional callings.

Campus information

Most of our current students will tell you that their campus visit played a major role in their decision to choose Augustana. There is no way to adequately describe the incredible sense of community here; you simply have to experience it. While you are here, you'll walk around our beautiful and ever-changing 100-acre campus, observe students and faculty engaged in classrooms and labs, sample the social scene in the Commons, and be greeted along the way by people you have never met before.

Augustana thrives in Sioux Falls, a city known as one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the heartland of America. A city of more than 173,000, it is the largest city in South Dakota. Our residents are known for their hospitality and rejoice in the beauty of four distinct seasons, which provide a variety of outdoor recreational activities.

Sioux Falls is the business, health care, shopping, entertainment, and cultural center of the region. Our largest employers include Sanford Health, Avera McKennan Hospital, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, and the Sioux Falls School District. These organizations represent a small sampling of the many internships, practicums, and part-time jobs that enhance and support the education of Augustana students. For example, our students may join scientists from around the world at the EROS Data Center to work on United Nations projects and to study satellite imagery.


Augustana is a residential university committed to learning and growth beyond the classroom. Our Campus Life program is grounded in a commitment to not only support each student's academic pursuits, but to contribute to the personal growth of students through a wide variety of programs and activities.

Augustana affirms the value of living in community and, therefore, requires students to live in university-owned housing. Approximately three-fourths of the student body live in residence halls, apartments, and theme houses managed by Campus Life. Here, students are able to make connections between their academic and social experiences, truly living and learning in an inviting and comfortable campus environment.
