1. Complete an application for admission.
Apply for admission to the University of Southern Indiana by completing our online application. Please use either Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox browser when completing the application. Using other browsers, such as Chrome, will cause errors upon application submission. There is a $40 application fee.
NOTE: During heavy application times (September through November), it takes approximately 2-3 weeks to process an application and make an admission decision, assuming all of the required elements have been submitted (application fee, transcript, and test scores). If you have submitted an application more than three weeks ago and have not received a letter, call our office to check on the status of your application.
2. Request your transcript, with an SAT/ACT score, from your Guidance Counselor.
If you have not taken the SAT or ACT then your application will be withheld until we receive your score. A transfer or special student may be required to submit test results. As the SAT implements a redesigned format, we will also continue to consider scores from the current test for admission and scholarship purposes.
3. Once USI has received your application and fee, high school transcript, and SAT/ACT score, a decision will be made by the Undergraduate Admissions office.
NOTE: If you are transferring from another institution you must submit an official transcript from each institution before an Admission decision can be made. After acceptance to USI you will receive detailed information about orientation, registration, and housing.
High School Equivalency Exam Admission
Any individual between the ages of 18 and 22 years of age who is not a high school graduate may be admitted by passing a high school equivalency exam (GED, HiSET, TASC, etc.) and an acceptable SAT or ACT score. Individuals over the age of 22 who have passed a high school equivalency exam may be admitted without providing SAT/ACT scores.
