A new agreement will make it easier for community college students in eastern Iowa to continue their studies at a four-year institution. Tuesday Augustana College and the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges introduced "Augustana Next."

Augustana Provost Wendy Hilton-Morrow says when students apply to the community colleges, they can also apply to Augustana.

Fall semester will start at the usual time for Augustana College next month, but maybe with fewer students on campus. 

Augustana College will honor its 612 new graduates this weekend. Because of the pandemic, it will host a virtual commencement Saturday on YouTube Live.
