We'll call you!
Student telecounselors are important members of the Undergraduate Admissions team at SIU. We call prospective students to discuss and answer questions about the admissions process, student life, and the University community. We are here to assist you through the admission and enrollment process by answering questions about your application, discussing the next steps, and sharing our personal experiences about what it is really like to be a Saluki. We come from different places, different backgrounds, and different majors, but we are here for the same reason—to show prospective students that SIU is the one destination for every journey.
