University of Southern Indiana

Student Activity Fee

Student Activity Fee 

Your wishes were heard

University of Southern Indiana students have been asking for additional improvements to the quality of life on campus - more recreation, more special events, more speakers, more of everything to do on campus. 

Your SGA made a recommendation

The Student Government Association recommended that the University implement a student activity fee beginning with the fall semester 2001. Like other universities in Indiana and nationwide, USI will use these funds to provide an enriched atmosphere for all students. 

Your cost is modest

USI continues to have the most affordable tuition and fees of any state-supported four-year institution in the state. The student activity fee will appear on your bill at the rate of $100 per semester and $100 for all three summer sessions.  

Your investment entitles you to take advantage of all services and participate in any programs provided for students. 

Your benefits are assured

As USI enrollment grows, the cost of providing student programs and activities also increases. The new student activity fee assures that present programs and services can continue and that significant new programs and services can be introduced.

For answers to questions you may have, contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 812/464-1862.

Student interest and demand may lead to the creation or expansion of other programs and services.


If you decide not to have access to any of the programs or services available to students who have paid the student activity fee, you may request an exemption. 

You need only request the Student Activity Fee exemption one time.  It is then a permanent exemption.  If you change your mind and wish to take advantage of the programs and activities funded by the Student Activity Fee, reinstatement can be obtained by e-mailing the Dean of Students at
