EARN A DEGREE FROM SIU WHEREVER YOU ARE
For nearly 50 years SIU Carbondale has been striving to bring quality education to students who cannot make it to the Carbondale campus by creating alternative pathways through off-campus and online program offerings.
Our efforts began in 1973 when SIU started serving students at military bases. Today, we are at military bases and community colleges across the U.S. and offer dozens of online programs to meet the needs of the growing number of students seeking flexible options to earning a degree.
We want to ensure nothing stands in the way of your future goals and success!
