Please Note: SIU Carbondale has a preferred application deadline of Dec. 1 for applicants. Any applications received after May 1 will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Freshman students wishing to apply for the next Spring semester are encouraged to apply for admission and submit supporting documents by December 1. If you prefer, you can download the printable application.

Test Optional!

At SIU, we know that the best indicator of college success is how hard you worked in high school, not how well you scored on a test.

That’s why we no longer require submission of SAT or ACT scores for students with a high school GPA of 2.75 or above.
