Financial Aid and Scholarships

When you choose a college or university, you are investing in your future. We want to make it as easy for you as possible.

Tuition and Fees

As a publicly supported institution, we offer exceptional value. Remember, the tuition rate you pay as a freshman locks in for four years. If you are from one of our border states, you should know about the in-state equivalent rate. If your parent or guardian is an SIU alum, you may be eligible for the Legacy Alternate Tuition Rate.

Financial Aid

Nearly 80 percent of SIU students receive financial aid. Our financial aid counselors are ready to help you walk through the application process, and help you receive any aid for which you qualify.


SIU offers plenty of scholarships. Besides the University-wide scholarships, we offer college-wide scholarships, and many departments offer scholarships and awards of their own.

Health Care Management Scholarship

The Health Care Management Program awards a Tuition Waiver Scholarship to one or more outstanding students each year when funding is available. For information on the Tuition Waiver Scholarship, contact the HCM Program Director.
