Financial Aid Office has Moved
We have moved to the second floor of the Student Services Building (located next to the Student Center).
The new address is:
Financial Aid Office
1263 Lincoln Drive
Carbondale, IL 62901
Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal Deadlines
Fall 2013 - August 30, 2013
Spring 2014 - January 24, 2014
A student must submit an appeal to the Financial Aid Office by the deadline date to be considered for financial aid.
Past Due Balances
SIU does not allow financial aid that is awarded for a current or future term to be credited to a student’s account to pay past term charges.
This means that in order to register for classes, students with a Bursar Registration Hold (BR) will need to pay all past-due charges greater than $1000. The current practice of obtaining a waiver for a registration hold can no longer be done.
Students may check if there are any kinds of holds or to verify their account balance on Salukinet.
Students who need to secure additional funding sources for the current semester are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office.
Students who have unmet need in their financial aid award package may be eligible to apply for PLUS (parent) and/or Alternative Private Loan. All loans must credit to a student's account prior to the end of the current semester.
