The Financial Aid Office (FAO) at Southern Illinois University (SIU) Carbondale assists students through the verification and administration of financial aid to help pay for their post-secondary education according to Department of Education guidelines. The four primary types of financial aid programs are scholarships, grants, student loans, and student employment. Financial aid may be available to qualified students through federal, state, institutional and private sources and does not always depend on financial need. In order to be sure you are considered for all financial aid you may be qualified to receive, be sure to complete your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) Application as soon as possible, beginning October 1st of the year prior to your admission.
