Welcome to University of Southern Indiana's Academic Advising website.
At USI, academic advising is an important part of the educational experience. Once admitted to the University, you will be invited to attend an orientation program.
The University of Southern Indiana offers two orientation programs:
New Student Orientation: Designed for students entering a university for the first time or for transferring students that have earned less than 19 credits at another institution.
Transfer and Nontraditional Student Orientation: Designed for students who are transferring 19 or more college hours from another college or university, or a nontraditional student. Nontraditional students are 25 years of age or older who are attending college for the first time, or are returning after an extended absence. Nontraditional students may choose to attend the new student orientation program.
Orientation is your opportunity to learn about the institution and get registered for your classes. As part of the Orientation program, you will be given an appointment to meet with your academic advisor. If you have decided on a major field of study, your advisor will be a faculty member from the academic College where that major is housed. If you are undecided about a major, your appointment will be with an academic advisor from University Division.
Your advisor will talk with you about your interests, your career plans and academic goals. Together, you will develop a plan to help you reach those goals and be successful at USI.
