We encourage you to register after discussion courses with your major professor. A USU students dashboard is located at my.usu.edu You will register for courses using "Banner" on the left menu. You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with this webpage. Tuition and fees are also paid via the "TouchNet Payment System" on my.usu.edu.
Graduate students on a PhD path have their tuition paid by the department. Fees and book are the responsibility of the student. If you are a non-resident the first two semesters the graduate school applies a waiver for the non resident portion of the tuition. After the two semesters or one year the student must be granted residency or pay for the non resident portion of the tuition.
