Screaming Eagles Orientations and advising/registration will be completed in the following way for Spring 2021 new students due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Make a reservation for a Screaming Eagles Orientation and advising

Students began receiving emails October 15 regarding making a reservation for orientation and advising. Screaming Eagles Orientation will be virtual through Zoom. Student Development Programs will be offering a separate Parent and Family Orientation at the same time. Students will go to myUSI and look for the Screaming Eagles Orientation app to submit their reservation.

Participate in a virtual advising appointment and register for classes

As part of the student’s reservation for Screaming Eagles Orientation, they will be asked questions regarding days of the week and times that work for a virtual advising and registration appointment. The advising centers will be scheduling these appointments and communicating them with the student. These appointments will begin November 2, 2020. The goal is to advise and register students as soon as possible after they complete the orientation reservation.

Complete the New Student Online Orientation

Students will complete online orientation. This orientation covers many areas of campus and processes students need to know. It will take students two to three hours to complete and replaces normal on-campus orientation. Students can complete online orientation at their own pace and in multiple sittings.

Participate in the Virtual Screaming Eagles Orientation

Virtual orientations will last 60 to 90 minutes and will provide a great opportunity for the student and their family to ask questions and learn more about starting classes at USI. Students will get the opportunity to meet current students and other new students. Student Development Programs will send students the Zoom link in their reservation confirmation and again a few days prior to their session. This session is optional for upper level transfer students and online students.
