CARBONDALE – Southern Illinois University Carbondale Chancellor John M. Dunn announced an extension to its free application period for prospective students through Dec. 1.
The extension follows a significant level of interest the initiative has generated from high school and transfer students.
“We are delighted at the positive feedback from students, parents, counselors, alumni and other stakeholders as a result of the university offering a free application period to help celebrate our 150th anniversary,” Dunn said.
Originally announced prior to SIU Homecoming weekend, the free application period was initially scheduled through Nov. 1. The university hopes the extension will allow more students to take advantage of the opportunity.
