Admitted Students

Complete an application for admission.

Apply for admission to the University of Southern Indiana by completing our online application. There is a $40 application fee.

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. USI's SAT code is 1335, ACT code is 1207.

Once USI has processed your application, transcript(s), and SAT/ACT score, a decision will be made by Undergraduate Admissions.

Upon acceptance to USI, you will receive detailed information about orientation, registration, and housing.

NOTE: During heavy application times, it takes approximately 2-3 weeks to process an application and make an admission decision, once all materials have been received. 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.

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 age 22+ who have passed a high school equivalency exam may be admitted without providing SAT/ACT scores.

Please use Internet Explorer when completing your application. Using other browsers, such as Chrome, will cause errors upon application submission.
