Parent & Former Student Perspective
|Students enrolling through CAP pay $25 per credit hour for the Priority Dual Credit Liberal Arts Courses, as authorized by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education (see grid that follows). All other CAP courses are $80 per credit hour, which is less than half of USI’s undergraduate hourly tuition.|
|Due to the changes made by the Commission, French/German/Latin/Spanish 204 will no longer be a free course; students will be billed $25 per credit hour for both 203 and 204, for a total cost of $75 per course.|
Each USI course is designated a specific number of credit
hours which determines the amount paid for the class. For example,
enrollment in English 101, a three credit hour course on the Priority
List, costs $25 x 3 or $75. Enrollment in PED 282, a two credit hour
course NOT the Priority List, costs $80 x 2 or $160.
Certain contingent fees (e.g., parking) are waived for CAP participants. Students are responsible for their own textbooks and materials. No additional fees should be charged to the student's account; if this is not the case, the CAP office should be notified immediately.
Tuition Waiver for Students Eligible for Free and Reduced Lunch
Academically qualified students who also are eligible for free or reduced lunch may enroll in CAP at no cost. When completing the student application, be sure to check the box next to #14 which states, "I qualify for free and reduced lunch." The waiver request will be verified with the school. If a student does not qualify for the tuition waiver, CAP staff will contact the family to verify that the application should be processed. Students who do not qualify will be billed the normal $80 per credit hour fee.
Students taking a foreign language are given the opportunity to receive additional college credit at no charge. Click this link to view how CAP students can get up to 12 hours of language credit for the cost of one CAP course.

Acceptable Methods of Payment NEW in 2010-2011
Starting August 1, 2010, USI has contracted with a third-party payment processor to assess a convenience fee of 2.70 percent of the payment amount on credit card payments for student accounts. Due to the limitations imposed by VISA, VISA credit card payments will no longer be accepted for payments made on student accounts. In addition, the University will no longer be able to accept tuition payments over the phone.
CAP tuition may be paid in one of the following ways:
Detach the bottom portion of your paper statement and return it to the USI Bursar‘s Office with a personal or cashier‘s check or money order, made payable to the University of Southern Indiana. In-person cash payments are accepted as well.
Log into MyUSI Self-Service, then click on Student, Student Account, View Bills-Pay Online. Paying online with an electronic check will not be assessed a 2.70 percent convenience fee but requires that you enter your bank account and routing numbers. Log into MyUSI Self-Service, then click on Student, Student Account, View Bills-Pay Online. Paying online with a credit card (MasterCard, Discover, or American Express only) will be assessed a 2.70 percent convenience fee.
Payment options include check, money order, MasterCard, or Discover card. Checks and money orders should be made payable to USI, with the student’s name and ID number located in the notation line. Also, payments can be made online at
http://www.usi.edu/busoff/BursarCashier/Index.asp by selecting the 'Online Credit Card Payment' link. The student’s identification number and birth date will be required to log in.
Payments may be made in person at the Cashier's Office on the lower level of the Orr Center. If you wish to mail in your payment, you may do so by sending a check to the Bursar's Office with the CAP student's name in the memo field. The address for the Bursars Office is:
University of Southern Indiana
8600 University Blvd.
Evansville, IN 47712
Students who have a past-due balance from a previous semester will not be allowed to enroll in another CAP course until at least half of the previous balance has been paid. Any student with a financial obligation to the University will not be able to transfer credits or enroll at USI as an undergraduate student until that obligation has been met. The students and their parents have the responsibility to meet the registration and tuition payment deadlines in order to receive credit for their CAP courses.
Children of Benefit-Eligible USI Employees
Benefit-eligible USI employees' children enrolled in CAP courses are eligible for the Dependent Children Fee Waiver. The employee should complete an Application for Fee Waiver for Spouses or Dependent Children (available in the Human Resources Office in the Wright Administration Center) prior to the enrollment deadline. The CAP student should complete the regular CAP application, taking care to check the box in #8 to make CAP staff aware that the parent is a full-time USI employee.
Children of Veterans
USI's Veteran policy applies to academically qualified CAP students. Credits earned through CAP will be deducted from the total number of credits received from the V.A. Visit USI's Office of Veterans' Affairs for more assistance, call 812/464-1857, or email email@example.com.
