If you have not registered for classes you will not have an email address. To sign into http://salukinet.siu.edu you will need to use your network ID with @siu.edu at the end.
Example: New student with a Dawgtag of 850000000 would have a network ID of SIU850000000, so they would sign into salukinet using siu850000000@siu.edu
