Southern Illinois University Edwardsville is a member of the Service members Opportunity Colleges (SOC).The SOC is a consortium of national higher education associations and member institutions that cooperate with the Department of Defense (DOD) and military services,including the National Guard and the Coast Guard, to help meet the voluntary higher education needs of service members. This service includes SIUE working with the Concurrent Admissions Program (ConAP) through the SOC. This is a partnership between the Army Recruiting Command and SIUE (as a participating institution).
When soldiers enlist in the Army or Army Reserve, recruiters encourage them to select a ConAP college. A College Referral and Intent to Enroll form are completed, and SIUE acknowledges this information and establishes a plan to work with the service member throughout their college process upon completion of their duties.
For more information about SOC and ConAP at SIUE, please contact Todd Burrell, Director of Admissions, at 618-650-3705 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
