USI approves admission process change, awards President’s Medal


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT)- The University of Southern Indiana announced Friday that it will no longer require undergraduate applicants to submit standardized test scores, beginning with the 2021-22 school year.

However, certain programs and scholarships may still require an ACT or SAT score as part of the application process and the university may still ask for scores after reviewing a student’s application.

In a press release, the university also announced Jean Marie Uwimama is the 2020 recipient of the USI President’s Medal. Uwimama grew up in a refugee camp in Zimbabwe before receiving an application to study at USI. Uwimama is graduating summa cum laude with a double major in economics and mathematics.

The President’s Medal is the highest honor given to a student and is awarded each year to a member of the graduating class.
