As a precaution, SIU is adjusting its calendar of events. We are exercising the utmost caution and taking responsible action to help ensure the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and community members at this time.
Plans call for canceling any event with 10 or more people expected to attend. Campus event facilities and SIU Athletics will be processing the cancellations and information will be posted on this site as it becomes available.
Admissions staff are available to speak with students by phone or in a virtual format. Please contact 618-536-4405 or email@example.com to arrange a virtual meeting. Events scheduled through April 24 have been canceled, and individual campus visits have been suspended until further notice.
We are working on an alternative delivery format for the Open House program that was scheduled for April 10. More details will be available soon. Interviews for the Provost and Transfer Scholarships scheduled for March 23 will take place via Skype.
SIU Day (scheduled for April 24) is postponed. We will send notification if we are able to offer an alternative format for this program. The Office of Admissions remains open and ready to answer any questions you might have at firstname.lastname@example.org or 618-536-4405. In the meantime, please take a virtual tour or create a custom viewbook.
All spring athletic events have been canceled.
