In addition to the ability to attend classes at SIUE, student tuition also goes toward various other resources available on campus. Here is a brief rundown of a  few of the many serves available to SIUE students.


Counseling Services

Counseling Services offers students short-term assistance for those with personal, developmental and academic concerns. They provide these services through a model of care that consist of bi-weekly or weekly, 50-minute sessions focused on a specific goal.

However, if during their initial assessment they determine a student would be better served through long-term care in the community, they will support them in a successful referral to an off-campus provider.

To make an appointment, call them at 618-650-2842 or go to their office at the Student Success Center in Room 0222.


Health Service

Health Service offers a wide range of services to students. These include clinical care, prescription pickups, gynecological healthcare, lab work and viral testing.

For students who wish to use these resources, international students must provide proof of insurance and all other students, while not required, are encouraged to have insurance to avoid additional costs. Insurance can be offered through the school if necessary as well.

To make an appointment, call them at 618-650-2842 or go to their office at the Student Success Center in Room 0222.

They also offer online career assessments such as TruTalent Personality, which helps students to better understand themselves and their natural talents and TruTalent Intelligences, which helps students recognize their multiple forms of intelligence.

The #17 Cougar Shuttle provides access to Peck Hall every 10 minutes from five Cougar Village bus stops. Students accessing campus from downtown Edwardsville, student housing near New Poag Rd, the Greenhill apartments, and the Esic area can take the #22 University Shuttle. The #19 can transport students from SIUE to the Glen Carbon Walmart; the #4 to the Enclave apartments off of 157 and Edwardsville Station downtown.

The #17 Cougar Shuttle provides students free transport between Peck Hall and Cougar Village every 10 minutes, but all other services require fare payment either in cash, $1 each way if they stay in Madison County, or an MCT pass which can be purchased on their phone via the Token Transit app, or at the Welcome Center at Morris University Center.
