From the Chancellor

Welcome to the University of Illinois Springfield!

I hope you find this catalog helpful as you explore academic programs and careers, and I encourage you to also visit our website - - where you will find course descriptions and more detailed information about our university and faculty.

UIS is proud to offer numerous degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels—both online and on our beautiful campus—as well as outstanding certificate programs that you can pursue independently or while earning a degree.

At UIS, a University of Illinois education is delivered through hands-on, student-focused teaching. Leadership is woven into the curriculum with a rich abundance of opportunities offered both in and outside the classroom. Our location in the state capital of Illinois provides students with opportunities and advantages they cannot get anywhere else.

As you consider which UIS pathway is best for you, I encourage you to contact the Office of Admission to determine which program or courses might be right for you.
