Affording SIU

When you choose a college or university, you are investing in your future. We want to make it as easy for you as possible.

Tuition and Fees: As a publicly supported institution, we offer exceptional value. Remember, the tuition rate you pay as a freshman locks in for four years.  We’ve  eliminated out-of-state tuition making it easy to become a Saluki no matter what state you call home. If your parent or guardian is an SIU Carbondale alum, you may be eligible for the Legacy Alternate Tuition Rate.

Financial Aid: Nearly 80 percent of SIU Carbondale students receive financial aid. Our financial aid counselors are ready to help you walk through the application process, and help you receive any aid for which you qualify.

Scholarships: SIU Carbondale offers plenty of scholarships. Besides the University-wide scholarships, we offer college-wide scholarships, and many departments offer scholarships and awards of their own.
