SIU Campus

We’ve built some great relationships with partner colleges in the state. Like us, they want what’s best for their students. So we work together to make sure the maximum number of credit hours transfer and our students have every opportunity to reach their full potential. 

Guaranteed Admission

The Guaranteed Admission partnership is with College of Lake County and McHenry County College. The program creates a seamless and successful transition for transfer students attending one of the participating community colleges who intend to complete their baccalaureate degree at SIU. Future transfer students opt into the program by filling out the Guaranteed Admission Program Participation Form.

Dual Admission/Dual Degree Program Agreements

The Dual Admission Program (DAP) is for students who plan to attend a community college first, then transfer to SIU Carbondale for a specific major. The program is intended to help students prepare their transfer to SIU well in advance of the matriculation date and take some of the stress out of the transfer process. 

Students at any eligible community college may participate in the Dual Admission Program, but those who attend institutions with a formalized Dual Admission Program agreement (Shawnee Community College, Southwestern Illinois College, John A Logan College, City Colleges of Chicago) are eligible for added benefits.
