The University of Southern Indiana (USI) is the newest and fastest-growing comprehensive state university in Indiana. It was founded in 1965 as the Evansville campus of Indiana State University and became the independent University of Southern Indiana in 1985. The wooded, 300-acre campus is located in the rolling hills of southwestern Indiana on State Highway 62, between Evansville and Mount Vernon.

USI serves traditional, nontraditional, residential, and commuter students. Approximately 30 percent live in campus housing while others reside in private apartments or commute. USI offers a full range of student life experiences, including intercollegiate and intramural athletics and social, Greek, honorary, and professional organizations.

Pre-College Information


Contact the CAP staff:

The College Achievement Program (CAP) is a cooperative program between the University of Southern Indiana and participating high schools. CAP allows highly motivated high school junior and senior students to take regular college courses in their own high schools at a reduced rate of tuition. CAP courses are taught by carefully selected high school faculty who are trained in special workshops by USI faculty members.

If you have taken any course work that could be considered for transfer credit—university level/dual credit courses, Advanced Placement (AP) or CLEP—please be advised that this could alter the courses you will want to register for. We strongly recommend that you contact Mary Branson, mbranson@usi.edu, or 800.467.1965 to verify whether your work is indeed eligible for transfer credit.
