Why UIS?

Students choose UIS because of the small class sizes and outstanding academic programs. Though we are the smallest in the three-campus University of Illinois system, our size sets us apart because this is where professors really know their students!

UIS enrolls approximately 5400 students in a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs, which are offered by our four colleges.

  • Access the UIS Catalog for a full list of bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral-level degrees offered.

About 300 international or non-native speakers from twenty-five countries around the world come to UIS for their educational needs.

International students choose UIS because they look forward to a unique experience. Our campus supports many organizations that allow international students a chance to interact with American students and experience Illinois culture.
