Augustana University College was a Lutheran college in Camrose, Alberta, Canada, from 1910 until its 2004 merger with the University of Alberta. It was established by Norwegian settlers.[1] Now known as the Augustana Faculty of the University of Alberta, it began its operations in 1910 under the name Camrose Lutheran College.[2] Augustana began offering university work in the fall of 1959 as an affiliated college of the University of Alberta and added a second year of the university transfer program in 1969. It became Alberta's first private university in 1985 when the first B.A. degrees were granted.[3]

On July 1, 2004, Augustana University College merged with the University of Alberta to become a separate faculty and satellite campus of the university.
