Take 15 credits per semester
to finish college on time


Take 15 credits per semester to make your college education more affordable.


Take 15 credits per semester to enter the workforce faster.


Graduating on time puts you in a position to begin making money sooner.


Graduating on time means you are in the workforce longer and your lifetime earnings will be higher.


Graduating on time leads to more options in your life, including pursuing a graduate degree, taking time off to travel, or to do volunteer work.


Take control of your education. Working with your advisor will keep you on track to graduate on time.


If you take less than 15 hours per semester, enroll in summer session to stay on schedule to graduate in four years.


Research shows that the longer one is in college, the less likely the student is to complete a degree.

Important Academic Reminders:

Right Now:

  • Advance registration for Fall 2014 classes is taking place now.
  • Applications for December 2014 graduation are now being taken.  Such applications may be done online within SalukiNet and are due by Friday, September 12.  Candidates who wish to participate in a ceremony would do so on Saturday, December 13 at the SIU Arena.  For more details, see the announcement within SalukiNet.  Applications for May 2015 graduation have just started being taken as well.

Late Summer 2014:

  • Most Summer 2014 grades – for classes ending no later than August 3 – should have been posted, and GPA and academic standing calculated, within SalukiNet by late Wednesday, August 6.  If you have a course grade of "NR" (Not Recorded) for any of those classes, your instructor did not meet the grade submission deadline and will be submitting a proper grade at a later time.  Grades for Summer courses ending after August 3, as well as for Law courses, may appear to be blank until they are submitted later in August.

What We Do:

The Registrar's Office provides administrative services and academic support to currently enrolled students and the campus community, as well as to prospective and former students.  We are located in room 0251 of the new Student Services Building.

The primary goals of the Registrar's Office are to assist students in the registration process, assess tuition and fees, monitor students' academic progress, and determine eligibility for degree.  The Registrar's Office also provides many specialized services for students such as transcript distribution, enrollment verification, and withdrawal.

For the academic units, the Registrar's Office oversees all general classroom space assignments, coordinates faculty and staff access to the Banner Student Information System, and identifies the students to be recognized for University-wide high scholastic achievement (such as Deans List and Honors Day).
