The 21-year-old South Korea international was the matchwinner against eventual champions Manchester City 12 months ago but has not featured this season.
Martin O'Neill had admitted a move was on the cards and Ji passed a medical on Tuesday to seal his switch to the struggling Bundesliga side.
He will link up with compatriot Ja-Cheol Koo in Bavaria.
Stefan Reuter, managing director of FCA Sports, told Augsburg's official website: "It's good that the transfer worked out before the start of training.
"Ji Dong-won can be used in several attacking positions."
Sunderland confirmed the news on their official Twitter account.
