No ACT/SAT Required!

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.

The Saluki Commitment

We are closing the financial gap between you and your education. Qualified students will have tuition and fees that are not included in their financial aid covered for EIGHT consecutive semesters at no cost to you or your family.

Transfer Students

The Saluki Transfer Pathways program is for students who plan to attend a community college first, and then transfer to SIU. Our pathway program will help students prepare their transfer and take some of the stress out of the process.
