Military and Veterans Resources
Welcoming Veterans, Active Duty, Spouses, and Dependents!
SIU Extended Campus is the central location for our off campus and online Veteran Students to utilize their VA Educational benefits.
We've been on military bases since 1973 and have been committed to helping active duty military, veterans, and their spouses and dependents enhance their careers!
You can take SIU classes with SIU faculty in the classrooms of our on-base and community college partners. We also offer online degree programs that are convenient, accredited and designed with the working adult in mind!
We take pride in our commitment to military veterans and strive to make the transition of Veterans from the military to SIU Carbondale a seamless process. Please see the important documents below to help you utilize VA Education Benefits.
