Students begin the program while studying at John A. Logan College or Shawnee Community College and receive support to transfer to Southern Illinois University Carbondale, where they complete a baccalaureate degree in science, technology, engineering, math or social science disciplines.

SI Bridges is a partnership among Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIU), John A. Logan College (JALC) and Shawnee Community College (SCC).
