Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Illinois Governor's issuance of the Stay-At-Home Order, the SIUE campus is currently closed to protect the health of our students, faculty, and staff.  To Drop Classes or Withdraw from SIUE for spring 2020, please send an email from your SIUE email account to  Include your name, University ID number (800#), and the class(es) from which you want to be dropped.  Registration changes for summer and fall 2020 can be made in CougarNet.  Email is monitored from 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday.


Prior to meeting with an academic advisor, most degree seeking students will have an active ‘AC-Advisor Check-In’ hold placed on their records.  Once you’ve been advised for the upcoming semester(s), your AC hold will be released by your advisor.  Some students will be given a 6-digit enrollment PIN, which is used to activate registration windows for certain web registration groupings. Your advisor will provide you with your enrollment PIN, should you belong to a group that utilizes one.  If you have an enrollment PIN, you will be prompted to enter it as you attempt to add or drop courses in CougarNet.  If you do not remember your enrollment PIN, contact your advisor.

Before registering for classes, you must complete the admission process and consult an advisor. More detailed information regarding registration dates may be found on the Class Schedules page. Additionally each semester, you will be required to accept the University’s Financial Agreement, acknowledging that you understand your responsibility for payment of educational services provided by SIUE, prior to gaining access to registration.

Any registration may be declared invalid for academic, disciplinary, or financial reasons attested to by the Registrar, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, or the Office of the Bursar.

Students needing accommodations because of medical diagnosis or major life impairment should contact ACCESS for additional registration information.

You are expected to complete the registration process before the term begins. Beginning with the first day of the term, you will be assessed a non-refundable $25 late registration fee if you have not yet registered. No registrations are accepted after the second week of the semester.
