Priority Registration for Fall 2021 is March 29-April 1
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 2020 or spring 2021, 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 will begin registering for classes after April 5, 2021 as part of Screaming Eagles Orientation. 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, March 29, 2021, 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.

Students are encouraged to register at their earliest opportunity. Eligible students who did not take advantage of the March 29-April 1 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 myUSI 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 course is considered a Late Registration and will incur a late registration fee ($50 or $150; see below).
New undergraduate freshman and transfer students are requested to participate in Screaming Eagles Orientation (refer to the New Student Orientation and Registration section). Through Orientation, you will become acquainted with the educational opportunities, facilities, resources and procedures at USI. Screaming Eagles Orientation for fall 2021 new students will be virtual. We also facilitate your advising and registration appointment where you meet with an advisor virtually and register for classes.
Your first step is to reserve your orientation session and your advising and registration appointment. This will be available beginning March 15, 2021 at USI.edu/orientation, where you will also find specific information about Screaming Eagles Orientation. Advising and registration appointments will begin April 5, 2021. For questions email email@example.com or call 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.
Any student who is registered for a semester/term is eligible for online add/drops 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 tuition credit is given for courses dropped online. Check your current balance online (through myUSI) by going to TouchNet. Pay online or visit the Bursar’s Office to settle your account by the bill due date.
Through TouchNet, students are able to access their billing statement, view up to date account activity, and pay online. Students may also create authorized users who can access their billing statement and payment information. Students and authorized users will receive an email notification that a billing statement is available online. To access TouchNet, log into MyUSI and clilck on the TouchNet app. Students must complete one of the following by the due date:
- Pay amount due: either A) use TouchNet to pay online by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover; a convenience fee of 2.85 percent of the bill will be charged when paying by credit card); B) pay by electronic transfer from a U.S. checking or savings account; or C) remit payment to the Bursar’s Office by cash, check, or money order.
- Enroll in a payment plan: Use TouchNet to enroll in an interest free payment plan by the bill due date. The payment plan divides a student’s tuition, fees, resident housing, and books (if charged to the student’s account) into monthly installments.
- If your financial aid displayed on your bill exceeds your total charges, no action is required.
Billing statements are generated on or after the 1st of each month and due to the Bursar’s Office by the 25th of the month. For questions about billing and payments, visit www.usi.edu/bursar or contact the Bursar’s Office; Orr Center lower level; 812-464-1842 or 800-467-1965 (option #4); email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Late Registration for Fall 2021
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 online during the week of August 23-27. 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 myUSI to register for classes.
