Submit new information

New academic information (test scores, grades) may be submitted by admitted students to the University of Evansville and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

File the 2022-23 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) between October 1 and March 1 to maximize your financial aid

Recommended date of March 1.

To maximize your financial aid package, file your FAFSA and indicate for UE to get the results. This free application can be submitted by visiting, entering your information, and submitting it with the required pin numbers. UE’s code is 001795. Indiana residents must file the 2022-23 FAFSA prior to April 15.

Respond to your Financial Aid Notification to accept/decline the offered aid

After you receive your Financial Aid Notification (March - April), respond to your Financial Aid Notification to accept/decline the offered aid. Determine your preferred method of payment for any balance owed.

Register for Student Orientation and Academic Registration (SOAR)

SOAR is a one-day orientation program required of all entering freshmen. This program offers students an opportunity to register for fall classes, meet faculty and staff across campus, and learn more about campus life. Admitted students can register for the SOAR session of their choice. Sessions are filled on a first come, first served basis and are confirmed after the student’s $300 deposit is received.

Final High School Transcript

Prior to leaving your high school, ensure your counselor knows to send your final transcript to UE Office of Admission, 1800 Lincoln Avenue, Evansville, Indiana 47722.

Submit Your Health Information Forms

State law and University policy require that certain health information be on file with the University Health Center before classes begin. Students who have deposited with the University will receive an email about how to access the required Health Information Form, as well as a form for the physician to complete. Information about health and immunization requirements can be viewed on the Health Center website. Questions can be referred to the Health Center at 812-488-2033.

Residence Life

Learn about living with a roommate, the UE dining experience, room sizes, and our residency requirement. Then, starting in late February, Housing and Food Service Contracts will be accepted. Contact your admission counselor if you can’t find what you’re looking for.
