Welcome SIU Graduate!
For those of you who graduated before December 2011, you will have to create your email address. For those of you who graduated on or after December 2011, your email address will be maintained during your lifetime. No action is required.
Lifetime email addresses are only available to graduates from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
