Full-time students will be billed prior to the start of each term for tuition, fees, housing and meal plans. The college does not offer a deferred payment plan. There is a private monthly payment plan offered through Tuition Management Systems. The website is All payments must be received by the first day of the term or a $100 late payment fee will be assessed. Enrollment is not complete until these fees have been paid.

Overload charges will be assessed when the number of credits enrolled in exceeds the number covered by full-time tuition (33 credits per year; 11 per term if student is not enrolled for the entire year). Overload charges are billed during the spring term, or immediately if the student does not enroll in the subsequent term (or at the time the student graduates). Courses dropped with a "w" are included in the determination of overload charges. Applied music credits for which a fee is paid are not included in the determination of overload charges. They are counted, however, toward normal tuition charges and full-time credit loads. A tuition deposit is required of all students new to the campus. Deadline for this deposit is May 1. The deposit is non-refundable. Students new to the campus are affected by policies appearing in the Admission section of the Augustana College Catalog and posted on the website. All financial obligations to the college must be met and all borrowed college property must be returned before academic records (diplomas and transcripts of grades) will be released.
