Saturday Dates

Undergraduate Admissions is open on select Saturdays in the Fall and Spring. We also host two Open House programs on a Saturday each year. Please visit the Open House page for dates and details. 

Saturday visits take place between 9:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Your visit will begin with a session in Undergraduate Admissions. Next, experience a guided tour of campus and a residence hall, ending with lunch in one of our dining halls; optional with a discounted ticket. 

A reminder will be sent to those who pre-register. Online registration will close at noon on the business day preceding each program. You may also register on site on the day of your visit.

Visit begins in Undergraduate Admissions, Student Services Building,1263 Lincoln Drive, Carbondale, IL, 62901.

Getting Here

Five hours from Chicago. Two hours from St. Louis. A world away from impossible. Whether you want to drop by for a visit or you’re dropping off a student for move-in day, we’re easy to find.

Open Houses

Undergraduate Admissions conducts two Saturday Open Houses per year. Open Houses are larger and feature more activities, tours and information sessions. Please visit the Open House page for more information.

Daily Visits

Daily visits are offered Monday through Friday throughout the year.  You will have the opportunity to meet with an Admissions Coordinator to go over admissions policies, financial assistance, housing and any additional interests you may have.  You can also request an appointment with a representative in your major and take a campus tour.

Group Visits

If you’re looking for a great educational opportunity for your school or organization, SIU would love to host your group for a campus visit. Group Visits are available Monday – Friday and at each Open House.
