Students that are freshman or transfer students with less than 59 credit hours will complete Screaming Eagles Orientation in three parts.
Part A: Complete New Student Online Orientation
Online Orientation will provide you and your family with information about advising, academic requirements, financial aid and billing, campus services and resources, and answer many other questions you might have about attending USI. You will complete this orientation at your own pace. It will take you 2-3 hours to complete. You don't need to do it in one sitting, but you will need to log in with the same information for the system to remember where you left off. The online orientation is a combination of videos and text and works best using the Google Chrome browser. This will be available beginning October 1, 2021.
Part B: Participate in Screaming Eagles Orientation
Students will make a reservation for an on-campus Screaming Eagles Orientation. The morning will be spent learning more about USI, meeting faculty, staff and other students, and answering your questions. In the afternoon, you will have your advising and registration appointment and have the opportunity to take care of business while at USI, including getting your student ID. Lunch will be provided. Students may bring up to 2 guests. Students should plan to be on-campus from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on their orientation date.
