Auggie Plan

Finish your bachelor’s degree efficiently and affordably with the Auggie Plan!

Follow a defined pathway to earn your two-year associate degree from Minneapolis Community and Technical College then seamlessly transfer to Augsburg College to finish your bachelor’s degree. Through the Auggie Plan, if you complete 60 credits at MCTC with a 2.75 GPA* or better, you are guaranteed admission to Augsburg College. You may also be eligible for merit scholarships based on your previous college coursework.

*2.5-2.75 GPA still considered for admission, but not guaranteed

What does the Auggie Plan do?

  • Maps out all the coursework you need at both institutions to make sure all your courses transfer
  • Guarantees that your 60 credits from MCTC will satisfy all first- and second-year general education requirements at Augsburg College
  • Grants you access to both MCTC and Augsburg advisors during all four years for extra support and guidance
  • Gives you time to explore majors and career interests and offers the resources to secure work after graduation

Is this affordable?

Because students on the Auggie Plan enter Augsburg at the junior level, many will qualify for scholarships—making it possible to earn a four-year private college degree with needs-based grants, manageable student loans, and no out of pocket costs for tuition.

Who should look into the Auggie Plan?

The Auggie Plan is designed for Minnesota residents who want to begin their college experience at MCTC but are seeking a clear, attainable path to a bachelor’s degree.

If you like to learn with people of diverse backgrounds, are excited by life in the city, and motivated by hands-on learning, you’re a good fit for the Auggie Plan.

Why MCTC and Augsburg?

Both MCTC and Augsburg are conveniently located in the heart of Minneapolis, provide services to help all students achieve college success, value intentional diversity, and are committed to developing future leaders.
