We encourage all students to go to their first class before purchasing a course textbook: sometimes, the professor will suggest an earlier edition or other money-saving tips!

Residences open at 11 am on Sunday, September 2.

Textbooks

Although some professors do post the textbook that they will use for a course online, the majority of the professors at Augustana will refrain from doing so.

We encourage all students to go to their first class before purchasing a course textbook, as sometimes an earlier edition will suffice. At other times, professors may inform you of another money-saving strategy for purchasing the required text.

Learning Strategies Workshop

On Saturday, September 15, the University of Alberta’s Student Success Centre will hold a day-long workshop on Augustana Campus. Discover practical time management, note-taking, reading and memory strategies that will help you study more effectively at university. Learn how to study for – and take – multiple-choice, short-answer and problem-solving exams.

Space is limited: students must register and pay the $100 session fee in advance. The session runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm in H-090, First-Year Residence building. Register with the Student Services Office in 2-336 of the Faith & Life Centre or call 780-679-1163. If you have questions, please contact Petra Cegielny at 780-679-1562.
