At Non-Traditional Student Services, OUR GOAL IS ENSURING YOU REACH YOURS!

The adult and transfer student population is growing and we have a place for YOU! SIU Carbondale is a nationally ranked research University so credentials earned here matter. If you are among the 75% of college students combining school with an already busy life, we invite you to take advantage of our services to help lighten your load and create a great college experience on your journey to degree completion.

Guide to Important Information

The Dean of Students unit wants all students to be aware of this important information.  You can find the guide here.

A message from the University:

We are aware of the social media post by a former student athlete. This individual has graduated and is no longer enrolled. We condemn the extremely offensive, hateful comments in the post, which are in direct opposition to our values as an institution.

Diversity and inclusion are embedded in our mission. We urge all members of our community to model our values and demonstrate respect for others. Now, more than ever, we need to come together to oppose racism through education and constructive action. We will continue to focus on creating a welcoming, inclusive culture and take all necessary steps to evaluate and improve what we do.
