Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Graduate Admissions will host its spring open house and visit program virtually at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday, March 25. Prospective students are invited to explore the possibilities of an advanced degree.

Each one-hour virtual session will include:

  • The opportunity to talk to faculty and learn more about SIUE’s graduate programs

“SIUE’s diverse array of programs make it an excellence option for the pursuit of an advanced degree,” said Jim Monahan, director of graduate admissions. “We are glad to offer this important event online. It’s a convenient opportunity for prospective students to talk to faculty about how these programs can help them achieve their professional goals. I encourage both current undergraduate students and individuals in the workforce to participate in one of our hourlong sessions and learn how simple it is to get the application process started.”

Registration is required at siue.edu/graduate-visit. The $40 application fee will be waived for anyone attending the open house. A Zoom link will be sent prior to the event. Participants will receive a fee waiver code at the event.
