Siemian was born on December 26, 1991, in Danbury, Connecticut, to Walter and Colleen Siemian. Siemian attended Olympia High School in Orlando, Florida. On the football team, he threw for an Orange County record of 6,144 career yards and 53 touchdowns as quarterback for three seasons with the Titans. He was also an outstanding baseball shortstop, third baseman, and outfielder, and was voted Mr. Olympia by his classmates during his senior year.
After achieving a 3.9 GPA and making the National Honor Society, Siemian chose to attend Northwestern University over Rutgers, North Carolina State, and Harvard.
At Northwestern University, Siemian majored in Communication Studies and was awarded Academic All-Big Ten honors in 2013 and 2014. He redshirted during his freshman year of college in 2010.
In 2011, Siemian was a backup quarterback to main starter Dan Persa. He played in eight games—the first against Eastern Illinois. He completed 16 of 26 passes for 256 yards and three touchdowns for the year.
In the 2012 season, Siemian earned a majority of the quarterback reps while Kain Colter saw occasional playing time. In the season-opener against Syracuse, Siemian led the team on a 75-yard game-winning drive after being down by six with 2:40 to play. Against Vanderbilt, he led back-to-back go-ahead drives in the fourth quarter, including a key 34-yard completion on a third-and-15 play. He made his first career start in a game against Indiana, throwing for 308 yards on 22-of-32 passing in a 44–29 win. He led Northwestern to a TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl victory versus Mississippi State, where he led two touchdown drives and scored his first career rushing touchdown.
In 2013, Siemian played in all 12 games and made his second and third career starts, while playing behind “wildcat” quarterback Kain Colter. Against Illinois, he passed for 414 yards which were the 10th most ever by a Northwestern quarterback. He threw a career-most 46 times versus Minnesota, completing 25. Against Ohio State, he made a career-long pass of 67 yards. Facing Syracuse, he threw a career-high three touchdown passes. Against California, he rushed for a career-high 21 yards. The Wildcats finished with a 5–7 record and missed out on a bowl game. For the year, he threw for 2,149 yards and 11 touchdowns. He ranked sixth in the Big Ten for completion percentage (59.7), seventh for yards per completion (12.07), and ninth in total offense (181.8).
In 2014, Siemian started the first 11 games before having a season-ending knee injury (torn anterior cruciate ligament) at Purdue on November 22. Versus Notre Dame, he passed for a season-high 284 yards and ran for a career-high 32 yards in a 43–40 overtime win. Against both Michigan and Minnesota, he posted a career-high in completions (32). Facing Penn State, he ran for a career-high three touchdowns. Against California, he threw a 54-yard touchdown and caught a 17-yard touchdown pass. The Wildcats once again finished with a 5–7 record and missed out on a bowl game. For the year, he rushed for five touchdowns and passed for 2,214 yards. The latter ranks him just outside of the top 10 in Northwestern single-season history.
Even though he started only 14 career games, Siemian completed college ranked fourth all-time at Northwestern in career passing yardage (5,931), fourth in completions (550), sixth in offensive yards (5,908), and seventh in passing touchdowns (27).
