Criteria for Admission to Achieve

Applicants must submit the Achieve application with all supporting documents. Upon review, applicants who are considered to be a good fit will be invited to complete an interview in person with the Achieve admission committee. A final decision is made after the interview. The cost of the Achieve interview is $150, payable on the day of the interview by credit card, cash, or check to the Achieve Program. Please note that all Achieve applicants must also complete SIU Admissions requirements.
