6. Register for classes
Once you submit your nonrefundable admission deposit, an advisor from Academic Services will assist you with advising and registration. Soon after the semester begins, you will be assigned a faculty advisor from your chosen major who will assist with registration for subsequent semesters. For those students who do not have the opportunity to preregister, advising and registration will occur during orientation (STAR).
7. Register for housing and meal plan
For those who want to reside in University housing, UE has many options, from traditional residence halls to town homes and houses. See UE’s Residence Life webpage for details about UE housing options, move-in dates, meal plans, and more. Once your nonrefundable admission deposit is received, you may apply for housing and meal plans through the MyUE/Student Self Service portal.

The Indiana Department of Health requires that the following immunization records be on file with the University Health Center for all full-time students:
- MMR – two doses required
- Tdap - within the past 10 years
- Meningococcal - 21 years of age or younger, one dose on or after 16th birthday
- TB skin test- within 12 months of start of semester
It is recommended that you have a physical and get your health information form completed by orientation (STAR) to allow time for the Health Center to ensure that all required information is complete. Your physical examination form and immunization certificate must be on file before the first day of classes or your class registration may be cancelled. For questions, please see the Health Center webpage or call 812-488-2033.
9. Register for orientation (STAR or SOAR)
STAR: The Student Transfer Advising and Registration (STAR) program is a one-day event designed to help you transition to UE and to introduce you to the programs, services and personnel we have at UE to help support you.
STAR covers information related to student engagement, academic expectations and preparedness, support systems, technology, financial aid, and where to find your information and your account, as well as a brief history of the campus and surrounding community. It is an abbreviated orientation program designed with transfer students and non-traditional freshmen in mind. We encourage you to bring parents, spouses, or a significant other who will help support you as you complete your degree at UE.
- Spring Semester: January 7, 2022
- Fall Semester: August 18, 2022
SOAR: Student Orientation Advising and Registration (SOAR) is a comprehensive orientation designed for traditional freshmen and their parents where UE is their first college experience. However, non-traditional freshmen are welcome to attend SOAR if they prefer.
UE provides further orientation and connection for freshmen through Welcome Week set for August 20-23, 2022. However, all new students desiring the experience, may register as a Welcome Week participant. There may be an additional fee depending upon your admission deposit rate.
Once your nonrefundable admission deposit is received, you may register to attend STAR or SOAR (and Welcome Week, if you like). Details can be found on the orientation webpage. If you have questions, please contact the Center for Student Engagement at 812-488-2371 or 800-423-8633, ext. 2500.
