Academic Advisors at SIU share an integral role in helping our students find their interests, skills, talents and abilities. We teach, mentor and empower students to identify and correlate their strengths into major selection, education plan development, leadership and volunteer commitments, personal growth and career opportunities. 

Parents, guardians, and family members...you share an important role in your student's university career. There is some information that we (advisors, faculty, staff and administrators) cannot share with you regarding your student in order to protect the student's right to privacy (FERPA).

How do I obtain permission to talk with my student's advisor about my student? (FERPA form to be completed by students)
