Questions that should NOT be directed to the CLASS Office -Anything having to do with a physical disability: hearing/vision impairments, mobility/wheelchair, other health conditions. These go to Sadie Curtis (X1749) -Anything having to do with scholarships for students with disabilities. We just refer them back to Fin Aid or encourage them to seek out private sources. We also sometimes refer them to TRiO. -Housing for students with disabilities: Sadie Curtis in Access handles special housing requests. -Questions about the special education department. Usually they mean the academic major in special education, so it's a good idea to ask them for clarification. -"I need to take an exam outside of the classroom, but I don't have a disability."

  12. 12. ResLife (612)330.1488 reslife@augsburg.edu www.augsburg.edu/reslife Mission: The mission of Augsburg College's Department of Residence Life is to develop residents who are both students and neighbors in an urban collegiate setting while being grounded in liberal arts, intentional diversity, and faith. Responsible through activism, leadership, awareness, acceptance, and developing freedom with accountability through self-governance and community standards. Resourceful Resourceful by appreciating and utilizing our urban setting, being holistic, and open to cultivating our experience into knowledge. Respectful Respectful by being inclusive, celebratory, self-aware, promoting social justice, and by honoring the dignity of others.
  13. 13. Enrollment Office (612)330.1046 enroll@augsburg.edu www.augsburg.edu/enroll Mission: Augsburg's Enrollment Center gives students the opportunity to take care of all the "business" of college in one convenient location. At the Enrollment Center, students can register for courses, make tuition payments, access student account information, or request a transcript. Staff members are ready to assist you in all aspects of registration and financing your education. Students can also register for classes, print their schedules and view their active courses, view their account activity, view statement archives, make a payment, request an official transcript, view/print an unofficial transcript (grades), and request enrollment verification online on Augnet. Enrollment houses the following: Academic Advising Financial Aid Registrar Questions that should be directed to the Enrollment Office: Questions regarding financial aid, questions about billing statements, how to make payments, loan questions, payment plan options, how to apply for financial aid, credit refunds, scholarship questions, account holds that restrict students from registering for classes, discount programs, bus passes, and taking photo ID's. There might be more, but I hope that gives you an idea of what we are able to answer. We can answer some registration questions as well, but my preference is if that call is directed to the Registrar's office. Questions that should not be directed to the Enrollment Office: Questions that we receive that should be directed elsewhere include anything from needing to set up an appt with an Academic Advisor, Transcript requests, locating a certain professor's phone number/office, orientation questions, admission calls, hours of the bookstore, hours of the library, etc.
  14. 14. Registrar’s Office (612)330.1036 registrar@augsburg.edu www.augburg.edu/enroll/registrar Mission: The Registrar's Office is an integral component in Augsburg's service and support structure. We provide a high level of service to students, faculty, and staff through facilitating all aspects of the academic programs offered by the College. Our office goal is to operate in a way that allows students and faculty to focus on academic, social, and civic engagement, rather than focusing on administrative processes. What we do: The Registrar Office maintains the master course list, builds the course schedule for each term, coordinates the academic calendars, and provides registration services to the College. We are responsible for processing official transcript requests, evaluating all transfer course work, and conducting degree audits for students nearing graduation. Staff members also provide support to students withdrawing from college, students returning to college after leave of absence, and students who receive Veterans Affairs education benefits.
  15. 15. Academic Advising (612)330.1025 advising@augsburg.edu www.augsburg.edu/advising Mission: Academic Advising (AA) educates students, faculty, and staff on the Augsburg curriculum; interprets academic policies and procedures; and supports students in achieving their educational and vocational goals. Academic Advising is grounded in Augsburg's mission: we focus on the liberal arts, faith and reason, civic engagement, and intentional diversity. We believe that in additional to our connection with these principles, we also play an important role in nurturing future leaders. Questions we do not want: Transfer credit evaluations, transcript requests, immunization holds, requesting an unofficial evaluation of transfer credit, and the student standing petition process & calendar. (Those go to Registrar) Financial aid/student account questions because finances directly affect a student’s ability to register. So what might be thought of as an advising question (help me register) is really a financial aid question (an accounts receivable hold is preventing registration) Prospective Students (admissions) Orientation (SOAR) WEC related calls (WEC) Questions we do want: Calls from current students with questions related to academic processes, requirements, and guidance. We also get calls from admitted/deposited students for intake advising. We field calls when we're not really sure what the student is asking for.
  16. 16. Access Center (612)330.1749 cutiss@augsburg.edu www.augsburg.edu/accesscenter Mission: The Access Center provides support and specialized services to students with documented physical disabilities. The goal of the Access Center is to assist students in reaching their individual potential, to promote their independence, and to ensure their access to the educational experience at Augsburg College. Areas of service and assistance include but are not limited to: • Individual meetings with the Physical Disabilities Specialist on a regularly scheduled basis • Assistance with organization and time management issues • Academic advising and registration • Registration and orientation assistance • Housing assistance • Advocacy with faculty and staff • Assistance with community support services and other non- academic issues Testing Accommodations • Extended time • Private rooms • Use of voice activated software • Reader and/or scribe Academic Accommodations • note takers • taped textbooks • language alternatives • typing of papers • adaptive PE courses • sign language interpreters Access to the Groves Computer lab and adaptive technology • Braille translating software and printer • CCTV • TTY • Speech recognition software

  18. 18. TRiO (612)330.1311 www.augsburg.edu/triosss Mission: TRiO/Student Support Services (SSS) is a relatively new program at Augsburg College. The SSS program is one of three TRiO programs originally funded under the Higher Education Act of 1965, whose objective is to help students overcome class, social and cultural barriers to complete their college education. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Student Support Services is committed to helping low-income, first- generation college students, and students with disabilities achieve a bachelor's degree. The program's mission is to increase the retention and graduation rates of these students by offering academic and personal support.
  19. 19. StepUp (612)330.1405 stepup@augsburg.edu www.augsburg.edu/stepup Mission: In 1997, the Augsburg College StepUP Program was created to address the special needs of students in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. At that time, the resources for recovering college students were extremely limited. The original plan for the StepUP Program included chemical free housing, a minimum sobriety requirement, weekly individual meetings with staff, a contract calling for standards of behavior, and a weekly community meeting. As of the end of the 2006-2007 school year, StepUP has served the needs of 342 students. Four full-time staff members have contact with the students on a daily basis. The program has graduated hundreds of students to become useful members of society and serve in a myriad of professional capacities. The beginning of the 2007-08 school year marks a milestone in the history of StepUP as offices and living quarters move to a new home in the Oren Gateway Center. The new space will allow the program to serve a significantly larger number of students. The addition of apartment style living will encourage students to participate in StepUP for longer periods of time and to progress into mentor and leadership roles with younger students. What We Do: • Affirm Augsburg's commitment to provide a high-quality liberal arts education for students with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and preparation. • Provide ongoing support to students in recovery who are willing and able to progress toward an academic degree. • Support students committed to sobriety.
  20. 20. Center for Service, Work, and Learning (CSWL) (612)330.1148 careers@augsburg.edu www.augsburg.edu/cswl Mission: At Augsburg, we are committed to helping you develop the skills, habits of mind, and values that are the foundation for life choices, career success, and active citizenship. Augsburg's Center for Service, Work, and Learning plays an integral role in your overall education and helps to prepare you to make meaningful contributions to our communities, businesses, government, families, and the world. At the same time, Augsburg offers almost limitless opportunities for you to gain concrete on-the-job and community service experience and has developed partnerships with community organizations and employers that provide learning opportunities to students, many of which fulfill the Augsburg Experience requirement for graduation.

  43. 43. Masters in Physicians Assistant Studies Application Deadlines: CASPA: September 1, 2009 Supplemental Application: September 15, 2009 The Augsburg PA Program participates in the Centralized Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA), which is sponsored by the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA). All applications to the PA Program for the entering class must be processed through CASPA, following all guidelines and regulations set forth by CASPA. Your CASPA application is DUE SEPTEMBER 1, 2009 and your Augsburg PA Studies Supplemental Application is DUE SEPTEMBER 15, 2009. You will be an eligible applicant if: you have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (as officially calculated by CASPA), if you have completed or will complete your undergraduate degree prior to the start date of the program, and if you have completed or will complete your prerequisite courses within the timeline specified for your situation. The Supplemental Application becomes available the first week of May each year with the opening of the ne w application cycle. It is important for the applicant to determine whether he or she is in fact eligible to apply to the PA Studies Program, as the $25 Supplemental Application fee is non-refundable. You are an eligible applicant if you meet the criteria detailed above. You will be required to print and sign the Supplemental Application and mail it to the program by the application deadline of September 15. Since all incoming students begin the course of study in late May, the application is thus made approximately a year before matriculation. The master's level program is 36 months in length. Studies begin in late May of each year. Academic Training (19 months) The first 19 months of study involve didactic, or classroom work, including courses in human gross anatomy, pathophysiology, clinical medicine, pharmacotherapy, history & physical exam skills, research, and professional issues. Clinical Training (17 months) The clinical phase of the Physician Assistant Graduate Program is 17 months in length. The initial 12 months is designed much like a physician's internship. Each student is required to progress through seven required rotations in the following disciplines: family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, general surgery, women's health, emergency medicine, and psychiatry. Each of these rotations is six weeks long. Additionally, within that first 12 months, each student will complete six weeks total of selected electives from disciplines such as orthopedics, ENT, dermatology, etc.
  44. 44. The mission of the Physician Assistant Program at Augsburg College is to provide underserved populations and communities in Minnesota with generalist physician assistants providing them with much needed health care. The clinical phase of the program is designed to effectively train students for that type of practice by placing students in health care facilities outside the metropolitan area for a minimum of t wo rotations. Our goal is to provide students with one to two locations in which to complete their required rotations to take away some of the financial and travel burdens that a PA student often faces. The Clinical Phase culminates with a t welve week preceptorship. This preceptorship is designed to solidify the student's primary care skills, and potentially place them in a setting that might be interested in recruiting a graduate PA. The preceptorship may be completed within the community that the student has been in for the required rotations, or may be else where in the state. The clinical education is taught by physicians, and supplemented by Physician Assistants and other health care providers. Each student is evaluated by the physician preceptor for the designated rotation. Nine times during the clinical phase students will return to Augsburg for testing as well as didactic and clinical skill workshops. Affordability: Tuition is $2,640.00 per course for the class entering May 2009. The following is a list of the number of courses taken per year. College fees are estimated to be $400 per year. Year One: 9 Course Year Two: 7 Courses Year Three: 8 Courses Lab Fees and Equipment: These costs are estimated to be $600 for lab fees ($200 per semester in the academic phase) and $800 for medical equipment. Books and Supplies: These costs are estimated to be $1,600 for the academic phase. PA Enrollment Deposit: $500 (non-refundable) The enrollment deposit is required of all new PA students after acceptance, and is credited to the student’s account to be applied to their first semester tuition. Payments and Financial: Aid Prior to the start of each semester a statement of estimated charges and anticipated financial aid credits is mailed to students.

Thesis or Graduate Project Students have two options for fulfilling their Master of Arts in Nursing final project, which serves as the capstone of the master’s program: a graduate field project, or an integrative master’s thesis. The Graduate Field Project, NUR 525, is based on a self-selected issue relevant to transcultural community health nursing, or nursing leadership. The student will focus primarily on the application and integration of knowledge. Working with an adviser, the student will design and/or implement and evaluate a model of advanced practice nursing applied to solving a transcultural problem related to health inequities in a selected community, or a nursing leadership issue. The integrative thesis option, NUR 535, expands upon and/or extends theoretical foundations or concepts identified in transcultural nursing, community health nursing, and/or nursing leadership literature. The thesis project demonstrates the student’s ability to do independent research involving the exposition of primary and secondary literature appropriate to the topic, the collection and analysis of empirical data, and the articulation of implications for advanced practice nursing.
