Screaming Eagles Orientation

COVID-19 Orientation Updates

The University of Southern Indiana offers three Screaming Eagles Orientation programs to meet your individual needs.

Orientation is your opportunity to learn about the institution and get registered for your first semester of courses. Learn more about our orientation programs by checking out the links on the left or click on the image to the right. 

New Student Orientation
Designed for students entering a university for the first time or for transferring students that have earned less than 12 credits at another institution. Students that just graduated high school will attend this session regardless of the number of college credits earned. 

Transfer and Adult Student Orientation
Designed for students who have earned 12 or more college hours from another college or university or an adult student. This does not include college credit earned while in high school. Adult students are defined as students that are 25 years of age or older who are attending college for the first time, or are returning after an extended absence.

Transfer/Adult Student Online Orientation
Designed for students meeting the following criteria:

  • Transfer students that have an associate's degree or who will have completed 60 credit hours at previous institution(s) when they begin courses at USI. (This does not include students that earned these hours while enrolled in high school.)
  • Adult students (25 years of age or older).
  • Students taking all of their course through distance education.
  • Students in the military that are unable to make an on-campus orientation or need to get registered early to get military benefits.
