Major Changes

Students should see the advisement unit within their college if they are interested in changing majors, adding a concentration to their major, adding a minor, etc.  Undergraduate students may need to satisfy a certain minimum GPA in order for such changes to be permitted (see Chapter 2 of the Undergraduate Catalog [Advisement, Registration, Withdrawal section, Changing Majors subsection] for details).

Formal paperwork requesting curricular changes for a term must be received by the Registrar's Office (or the Graduate School in the case of graduate students) by Week 2 of the term; otherwise, the change will be put into effect for the following term.  Students who are approaching graduation should verify that their academic program officially on record with the University is up-to-date before they submit their graduation application.

Effective March 2014, most undergraduate students who have not yet earned a Bachelor's degree, and who have earned more than 45 total credit hours (including more than 26 SIU credit hours), will need to formally declare a major in a degree-granting program if they have not already done so.  See here for more details.


Address and Phone Changes

Students may submit address and phone changes within SalukiNet, selecting the MyRecords tab and entering SalukiNet Self-Service.  You may provide separate permanent (home), mailing (local), and billing addresses.  Information about how addresses are used is available here.

These address/phone changes will affect only your SIU student records.  If you are also an employee, graduate assistant, or student worker, you will need to contact Human Resources and/or Payroll to update your address/phone within their system.


Emergency Contact Information Changes

Students may supply and update emergency contact information within SalukiNet, selecting the MyRecords tab and entering SalukiNet Self-Service.  In the event of an emergency directly impacting the student, appropriate SIUC personnel will be able to use this information to quickly contact family (or other persons noted in the emergency contact information) with information about the student.


Name Changes

Please see here for what to do if you need to change or correct the legal name as officially noted on your SIU student records.  If you are also an employee, graduate assistant, or student worker, you will need to contact Human Resources and/or Payroll to make similar updates to your legal name within their system.


SSN Changes

Please see here for what to do if you need to change or correct the Social Security Number (SSN) as officially noted on your SIU student records.  If you are also an employee, graduate assistant, or student worker, you will need to contact Human Resources and/or Payroll to make similar updates to your SSN within their system.
