Admissions | College of Agricultural Science | SIU

Southern Illinois University




We will help you go as far as you want to go in your academic career.

If you are beginning your college career and you are seeking a bachelor's degree or an associate's degree, you are an undergraduate. You'll start the application process with Undergraduate Admissions. They'll walk you through the steps and answer your questions. They might even answer a few you didn't know you should ask.

If you are coming to SIU as an undergraduate from another university or college, you are a transfer student. You will want to use many of the same services as new freshmen, but you'll also want credit for the college work you've already done. We will go out of our way to make the transfer process a barrier-free one.

Graduate students apply to the Graduate School with a particular degree in mind, or they apply as a Nondeclared Graduate Student. Our graduate programs take you to the next level. Initiative is always rewarded at SIU.

Affording SIU

When you choose a college or university, you are investing in your future. We want to make it as easy for you as possible.

Tuition and Fees: As a publicly supported institution, we offer exceptional value. Remember, the tuition rate you pay as a freshman locks in for four years. Also, we have eliminated out of state tuition for undergraduate students!  Don't forget if your parent or guardian is an SIU alum, you may be eligible for the Legacy Alternate Tuition Rate.

Financial Aid: Nearly 80 percent of SIU students receive financial aid. Our financial aid counselors are ready to help you walk through the application process, and help you receive any aid for which you qualify.

Scholarships: SIU offers plenty of scholarships. Besides the University-wide scholarships, we offer college-wide scholarships, and many departments offer scholarships and awards of their own.
