From the Chancellor

Welcome to the Springfield campus of the University of Illinois!

We hope you find this catalog helpful in exploring academic programs and careers. We invite you to visit our website as well – – where you will find course descriptions and more detailed information about our university and our faculty.

Please take time to become familiar with what UIS has to offer: 52 degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, online courses, and degree completion programs offered entirely online. We also have some outstanding certificate programs that you can pursue independently or while earning a degree.

At UIS, a University of Illinois education is delivered on a campus where teaching is the focus and leadership is woven into the curriculum and into the rich abundance of opportunities offered both in and outside the classroom. Our location in the state capitol of Illinois provides students with opportunities and advantages that they cannot get anywhere else, regardless of the field of study.

I encourage you to contact the Office of Admissions to determine which program or courses might be right for you.


Susan J. Koch,  Chancellor
