Web Registration using the SalukiNet system

Under our Student Information System, undergraduate, graduate, and Law students will self- register using SalukiNet Self-Service.  Advance registration for a given term opens according to this schedule.

Need help with registration?  This page presents an overview of the self-registration process.  But there are other options for you to use to learn about self-registration:

  • We have a four page step-by-step PDF handout that also lists resources and contact info related to registration and registration issues.
  • If you want to see the self-registration process in action, we have a Registration Tutorial (as a Flash video).

As you read the information below, you can click on each small image to bring up a full-size image of the screen print.


salukinet screenshotThis is the main login page at salukinet.siu.edu. Current and former students, applicants, and faculty and staff should have a Network ID and password, which they will enter in the box at the upper left in order to log into the SalukiNet system.

Do you not have a Network ID?  As of June 15, 2009, all applicants to SIU should have one – since it will be automatically assigned – though you will need to go to netid.siu.edu first to "claim" your Network ID.

What is the login box in the upper right for?  That is for a parent or other third party to use in order to pay your Bursar bill or add money to your Debit Dawg account.  More info about this can be found here, but it is not important for self-registration.


salukinet screenshotThis is the Welcome tab you'll come to once you have successfully logged into SalukiNet (though its content may not look exactly like this).  You probably already realize that this tab is made up of several channels arranged in three columns.  The channel in the upper left corner has a few links designed to expedite self-registration.

That first link will allow you to go straight into the Self-Service area where you can pick out the desired classes and register for them.  The second link gives you info on when you're allowed to register.  And the fourth link is a step-by-step Flash video showing you how to self-register (but it's really not overly complicated to do).


salukinet screenshotAn aside:  If you don't click that first link in the upper left corner channel, but instead click on the MyRecords tab at the top, this is where you will be taken.

The left hand channel is where you would go in order to view your SIU student records.  This includes registration, financial aid, billing information, and grades (as well as your SIU Unofficial Student Academic Record, which contains information similar to that in a transcript).  This channel will lead you to a comprehensive area related to your SIU academics, and we will refer to it as SalukiNet Self-Service.


salukinet screenshotAssuming that you did click that first link in the upper left corner channel, here's the main Self-Service menu (though it may have additional links in the future that aren't yet shown here).  This menu will actually open up in a new tab in your Web browser.  Choose the Student link to get to the self-registration area.


salukinet screenshotHere's the Student menu.  Select the Registration link to continue.

The other links noted in the Student menu will be useful for you down the road as well.  For example, you would click on the Student Records link to see your grades, and you would click on the Student Account link to see your Bursar bill.


salukinet screenshotHere's the Registration menu.  You'll likely want to choose the first link to get going.  If you have already picked out your classes in advance (with your advisor) and know their CRNs (Course Request Numbers), you can choose the second link.  If not, you can choose the third link and start searching for classes.

However, it's highly recommended that you click on the Registration Status link first to see if you are free and clear to register.  (While you will be told elsewhere if you are not eligible to register, the Registration Status page will summarize everything that you need to know in one place.)


salukinet screenshotHere's the Registration Status information.  This student is not eligible to register because of one or more holds.  But, even after clearing up the holds, the student would still need to be readmitted, since he or she has sat out one or more semesters since last being registered.  If you don't see any warning triangle symbols (and their messages in bold type), you should be good to go (though you should check back right before registration opens in case your status changes at the last minute).


salukinet screenshotIf you had chosen the Add or Drop Classes link from the Registration menu, you might be seeing this next screen.  (Most undergraduates will.)  If your department requires it, you will have to enter a RUN number each time you return to SalukiNet to add or drop courses.  You will be provided this number when you meet with your advisor to plan your schedule for the upcoming term (new students may receive it at New Student Orientation).  The RUN will stay the same for any registration changes for this term (though it may be different for future terms).


salukinet screenshotIf you are required to have a RUN, but you do not yet have it (or cannot remember it), you can not continue with the registration process.  A RUN from a past term usually will not work for this term.  You need to check with your advisor to get your RUN.

Once successfully past the RUN number prompt, you will be brought to the Payment Agreement page.  Here you will be asked to agree to certain payment conditions that will come into play as the result of registering.  If you do not agree, you can not continue with the registration process.


salukinet screenshotThis is really the main registration page.  It is where you enter the CRNs of the classes for which you're trying to register.  You can either enter them directly here, or search for them and have them populated onto here from the search results.

If you've done your schedule planning in advance and have the CRNs, then you can quickly enter them here without having to do any searching during this registration session.  Once you've entered the CRNs, click the "Submit Changes" button.


salukinet screenshot Please note that some classes will have a waitlisting option available for them.  So, if you cannot add a class because it is full, you can choose to get on a waitlist if one is available (otherwise, you will need to check back from time to time to see if that class has any openings). 

If you were successful in adding a class, you will be shown a modified version of the previous page with a mini schedule included on it.  From here you can add more CRNs, or you can take other Actions (via a drop-down box) on your current CRNs.

You can go back to the Registration menu and print out a more robust schedule by choosing either the Concise Student Schedule or the Student Detail Schedule, or you can print out a calendar of your schedule by choosing the Week At A Glance.


salukinet screenshotWhen you are done with registration, you can choose from the four options in the upper right corner:  you can return to the main menu (from earlier), you can go to a site map of the menus (shown here), you can access some context specific help, or you can exit the Self-Service area (which will close this tab in your Web browser for security reasons, leaving you back within the main SalukiNet portal).

That's really all there is to using the new self-registration process.  For some additional details, including information on using the class search features (if you don't have CRNs in advance), we have a four page PDF handout here.  Plus, if you want to see the self-registration process in action, we have a Flash video that you can watch here.
