1. Complete an application for admission.
There are two ways to complete an application for admission, apply online, or download and mail our paper application. If you would like to request an application, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800/467-1965.
If filling out the paper application, you must attach a check payable to USI for the $40 application fee. If filling out the online application you may pay the application fee by credit card.
2. Attach or 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.
3. Once USI has received your application, high school transcript, SAT/ACT score and your application fee an acceptance decision will be made by the Office of Admission. 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.
GED Test Admission
Any individual 18 years of age or over who is not a high school graduate may be admitted by achievement on the General Educational Development (GED) test and an acceptable SAT or ACT score.
NOTE: Applicants who have been schooled in settings other than a commissioned high school and who are less than 18 years of age will be reviewed individually by the Director of Admission. Scores from the SAT or ACT are required, and completion of the GED test or other high school equivalency test is strongly recommended.
