Augustana became the newest campus and faculty of the University of Alberta on July 1, 2004. It is located in Camrose, Alberta, 90 kilometres southeast of Edmonton. Augustana is committed to providing students with a high-quality undergraduate education through small classes, personal attention from professors, an innovative curriculum rooted in the liberal arts and sciences, and a range of campus-life programs.


Areas of Expertise


Augustana offers four year Bachelor Degree programs in art and science, spanning across the humanities, social sciences, sciences, and fine arts. A combined Bachelor of Education/Bachelor of Science degree program is also offered. Students may specialize in a wide variety of disciplines including biology, chemistry, computing science, business economics, environmental science, general management, kinesiology and sport studies, music, psychology, and sociology. Multidisciplinary majors in Law, Crime and Justice Studies; Creativity and Culture; and Ethics and Global Studies are also available.

Augustana is a residential campus, and thus requires all students to live on campus for their first year. Exemptions are provided for part-time students, married students, those over 21 years of age at the time of their registration, those living with family in the Camrose area, transfer students, and students with medical needs that cannot be met by Augustana. Residence fees include an all-you-care-to-eat meal plan, internet, and access to Augustana’s fitness centre.


Incoming Students


Prior to arriving on campus in the Fall, new students are given access to an online orientation series where they learn about academic honesty, clubs and organizations, international opportunities, academic success, and student services. Once they arrive on campus, students attend their first university course, the First Year Seminar. This course is an intensive discussion-based course with the goal of introducing students to the skills needed to be successful in university. Beyond sessions aimed at helping students transition into campus life, there are also social events such as BBQs, slip ‘n’ slides, and more, which happen throughout student orientation.


Career Planning


Augustana has a centre that houses resources on careers, educational institutions in Canada and abroad, graduate programs, exchange programs, academic advising, and much more.




Augustana’s teams, the Vikings, compete in numerous competitions ranging from small college conferences to provincial and national competitions. Augustana competes in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) and is also a member of the Canadian College Athletic Association. If you are interested in playing on one of our sports teams, fill out our “Get Recruited” questionnaire.




Augustana is a small, close-knit campus with lots to do! Students on campus are only a short walk from downtown where they can enjoy the shops, restaurants, and attend special events. On campus, our Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre hosts a number of different events and shows that our students can attend. Augustana Campus also hosts a number of events throughout the year including presentations and lectures, performances, workshops, meals, and more.




Students at Augustana will find over 25 clubs and organizations related to academic programs, humanitarian causes, athletics, and other interests. These organizations include the Management Society, Augustana Queers and Allies, Afri-Youth Club, and the Augustana Science Club. If you can’t find a club that you’re interested in, start one!


Information Technology


Students have access to computers in our library, including high-speed internet access. Wireless internet access is also available across campus, including in residence rooms. Technical support for UofA Augustana students is provided by UofA Augustana’s Technology and Learning Services (TLS).




One of the benefits of attending a small campus is that it is easy to stay connected and get involved. Every year we host concerts, music, and theatre productions on campus. Students at Augustana are from a variety of different ethnic backgrounds and are from all over the world. As a result, we have a wide range of culturally diverse activities on campus.


Special Services


At Augustana, we pride ourselves on offering a wide variety of services to our students. For example, we provide Student Success and Accessibility Resources to students that may require additional support with their education. We also have a Writing Centre and a Math Computing Support Centre, services which are devoted to helping students improve their writing skills and assisting them with math and/or computing science courses. Other services include an Indigenous Student Services Office, international student support, personal counselling, and academic advising. For convenience, many of these services are located in our newly designed Learning Commons.


Affiliated Institutions


Augustana is a campus of the University of Alberta. Students who graduate from Augustana receive a University of Alberta degree.


International Involvement


Augustana provides several international learning programs affording students the opportunity to travel to places such as Cuba, Germany, Costa Rica, France, Norway, India, and Mexico. Students can spend time abroad as part of one of our three-week courses or they can spend a full semester abroad.


Campus Tour


Prospective students can experience campus first-hand during Augustana’s Preview Days. By attending one of our Preview Days, you will have the opportunity to meet current students, professors, the Dean, and your Admissions Advisors. You will also have the opportunity to tour campus, enjoy a free lunch in our all-you-care-to-eat dining hall, learn how to apply for scholarships, and apply to Augustana. Visit to register for one of our upcoming Preview Days! If you prefer a more individualized visit, you can also sign up as a “Student For A Day.”


Requirements for International Students


In order to be considered for admission, applicants must present a competitive average for their program choice, based on the courses required for that program/major. The competitive average may change throughout the year based on the competitiveness of the applicant pool. Meeting the minimum average (70%) or competitive average does not guarantee admission, and space in each program is limited. As English is the primary language of instruction at UAlberta – Augustana Campus, all students are required to meet our English Language Proficiency (ELP) requirement.


Procedure for International Students


International students from overseas must apply a minimum four months prior to the beginning of term. Applications can be submitted online or by mail. To access the mail-in and online application forms, applicants should visit the UAlberta website. We highly encourage online applications, as they will be processed much more quickly than paper applications. International applicants should anticipate a period of six to eight weeks to process their Student Authorization/Visa application after they have received their letter of Official Admission from the University of Alberta – Augustana Campus, so starting the process early is crucial.
