Welcome to SIU Veterans Services Main Content

The Veterans Center is committed to making the transition of Veterans from the military to SIU Carbondale a seamless process. If you are a Veteran who is interested in attending SIU Carbondale, or have already been accepted, your first step should be to contact the Veterans Services Office. If any questions arise please do not hesitate to contact or stop by.

VA has issued a fraud alert.  Phone numbers which differ by a single digit from VA Call Center numbers have been created.  If you dial the fraudulent number you will be offered a gift card and asked to provide credit card and other personal information.  Click here to read the VA Fraud Alert.
