Priority Registration for Fall 2015 is April 6-17

The purpose of the priority registration period is to let eligible students select courses prior to the beginning of the term. Once you complete priority registration, you will have reserved space in the classes for which you have registered. If you were not enrolled in fall 2014 or spring 2015, but have been enrolled previously, visit www.usi.edu/registrar or the Registrar's Office for undergraduate readmission (812-465-1157 or 800-467-1965, option #3); visit www.usi.edu/graduatestudies or the Graduate Studies office for graduate readmission (812-465-7015). New (incoming) undergraduate students must participate in Screaming Eagles Orientation prior to advising and registration; refer to the New Student Orientation and Registration  section for details.

Eligible students register online via myUSI (my.usi.edu). Priority registration begins at 8 a.m. on Monday, April 6, 2015, and progresses according to the schedule below. Students register according to the total of their earned plus currently enrolled hours, and are encouraged to register on their first day of eligibility.

  • Eligible students register online, but are urged to first meet with their academic advisor to review their course selection. Contact your advisor to schedule an appointment (subject to availability).
  • Many students [degree-seeking undergraduates with less than 30 earned hours (freshmen), students with a GPA less than 2.00, students from certain majors, etc.] will have a registration hold placed on their record and will be eligible for registration only after meeting with their academic advisor to review their course selection and remove the hold.
  • Degree-seeking undergraduates should review their degree audit (through myUSI) prior to registration to check their progress toward degree completion and verify acceptable course options.

Login instructions and details about some of the myUSI menu options and functions used for registration, and an overview of myUSI, can be found in the Online Registration  section.

Priority Registration schedule

Students should first meet with their academic advisor before registering. Contact the department of your major to inquire about office hours, advisor availability, and to schedule an appointment. If you're unable to meet during regular office hours, please inquire about alternative advising options.

Open Registration for Fall 2015

Open Registration is the period of time between Priority Registration and the beginning of the semester/term.

Students are encouraged to register at their earliest opportunity. Eligible students who did not take advantage of the April 6-17 priority registration period will have additional opportunities to register during the Open Registration period (refer to the Registration Calendar). Students should first meet with their academic advisor before registering. Contact the department of your major to inquire about office hours, advisor availability, and to schedule an appointment. If you're unable to meet during regular office hours, please inquire about alternative advising options. Once advised, log on to mUSI to register for classes.

  • If you anticipate receiving financial assistance to cover your fees, please register several days before the term's billing date in order to allow time for the aid to appear on your account.
  • Any registration that takes place on/after the first day of the semester is considered a Late Registration and will incur a late registration fee ($35 or $125; see below).

New undergraduate freshmen and transfer students must participate in a Screaming Eagles Orientation program prior to registering for classes (refer to the New Student Orientation and Registration  section). Through Orientation, new students will register for classes and will receive other important information to introduce them to life at USI. The last Orientation program will be held on Wednesday, August 19, 2015. After August 19, students still needing to complete the orientation requirement will do so by completing online orientation before registering for classes. To make a reservation for Orientation, complete online orientation, or if you have questions, visit www.usi.edu/orientation; email orientation@usi.edu; phone Student Development Programs at 812-465-7167 or 800-350-7830.

Graduate students must be deemed eligible by Graduate Studies and accepted to a graduate program by the close of business on the Friday prior to the start of the term in order to register for classes.

Schedule changes

Any student who is registered for a semester/term is eligible for online changes and withdrawals for that semester/term. If you need to make changes to your schedule of classes, you can do so online through myUSI through the first week of the semester (refer to the Online Registration  section for web processing details). You also may do so in person at the Registrar's Office during normal office hours. A 100 percent credit is given for dropped courses. Check your current balance online (through myUSI) by going to View Bills/Pay Online. Pay online or visit the Bursar's Office to settle your account by the bill due date.


Billing

USI has partnered with Nelnet to offer USI Express Pay, an electronic system to view, print, and pay bills online. On or about the billing date listed in the Registration Calendar, students and any authorized payers will receive an email notification that the eBill is available online. Students also can view their account summary online via myUSI (my.usi.edu). Your bill must be settled by the due date.

  • Net payment due: either A) use Express Pay to pay online by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover; a convenience fee of 2.7 percent of the bill will be charged when paying by credit card) or pay by electronic transfer from a U.S. checking or savings account; or B) remit payment to the Bursar's Office by check or money order.
  • Payment plan: To enroll in a payment plan, select Make a Payment under Express Pay, then choose the Payment Plan option. There is a $35 non-refundable enrollment fee to enroll in the payment plan.

Billing statements are generated on the 10th of each month and due to the Bursar's Office by the 20th of the month. For questions about billing and payments, visit www.usi.edu/bursar/payment-faq or contact the Bursar's Office; Orr Center lower level; 812-464-1842 or 800-467-1965 (option #4); email bursar@usi.edu.


Late Registration for Fall 2015

Late Registration begins on the first day of the semester/term.

It is strongly recommended that you register during the published dates of priority registration or during the open registration period. However, if extenuating circumstances prevent you from doing so, you may be allowed to register during the week of August 24–28. Students should first meet with their academic advisor before registering. Contact the department of your major to inquire about office hours, advisor availability, and to schedule an appointment. If you're unable to meet during regular office hours, please inquire about alternative advising options. Once advised, log on to mUSI to register for classes.

Students allowed to late register during the week of August 24–28 will be assessed a $35 late registration fee. After completing the late registration process online through myUSI, go to View Bills/Pay Online to view your balance and pay fees.

Only in exceptional circumstances will a student be allowed to late register after the first week of the semester/term. Any registration taking place after 4:30 p.m. on August 28 requires the completion of a late registration form (with signatures of approval) and will incur a $125 late registration fee. After completing the late registration process, log on to myUSI and select to View Bills/Pay Online to view your balance and pay fees.


Transactions must be completed by 4:30 p.m. (Central Time) on the final
day of any registration, schedule revision, withdrawal, or refund period
