Thinking About USI?

Students should investigate whether a course will fit into their college coursework degree map before signing up for dual credit. There are several ways to investigate course utility. Information for USI-bound students is below. 

Any dual-credit course a student registers for counts towards the overall number of credit hours a student may receive federal financial aid for. Thus, it is important that CAP students carefully consider any dual-credit courses before registering for them and verify that they will apply towards a potential future degree map. If students are undecided on possible majors, advisors will be able to provide general course recommendations (see USI's Advising Center information below). Contact USI's Student Financial Assistance Office with financial aid questions. 

USI-bound students will be required to complete USI's Core 39 general education requirement list. The Core 39 CAP pdf shows which CAP courses satisfy a Core 39 requirement. Note that most majors require a few specific Core 39 courses. Each academic program also has check-sheets showing what courses are required for that major (in addition to the Core 39 required courses).

USI-bound students can also use the online Bulletin to see how certain CAP courses fit into USI programs by following the directions below:
     •Type the course into the search box, just below the drop-down box that reads "Courses."
      IMPORTANT: You need to use the USI course abbreviation: BIOL 105 instead of Biology 105; ENG 105 instead of English 105.
     •Click the magnifying glass to search.
The results show the various majors and minors that course fits into. Click the results to view the required and elective courses for each major.

For CAP students who plan to attend USI, use DegreeWorks to investigate how your USI dual credits affect degree completion requirements in different programs.  DegreeWorks can be found by logging into myUSI.
