Important Note: Please keep a record of your chosen username and password. SIUE is not able to retrieve or reset this information for you if you lose it. You will also be able to use the CougarNet system to check on the progress of your application.

When you have completed your application and are ready to submit it, you must pay your application fees via credit card online or by mailing a check to SIUE. No application can be processed until the application fee is paid.
