View Content

Classes Begin Dec. 11th

Take advantage of extra time in your schedule this winter and even possibly earn your degree in a shorter period of time. The University of Illinois Springfield is providing a unique opportunity to help you reach your educational goals faster with accelerated 4- to 6-week courses between fall and spring semesters 

Most accelerated courses begin Dec. 14 and are offered in accountancy, biology, computer science, criminal justice and criminology, environmental studies, management information systems, political science, psychology, public administration, sociology and anthropology, and teacher education.   

The deadline to apply is Dec. 15. Because of the shortened schedule, it is recommended that students only register for one accelerated class. All students are eligible to apply for financial assistance.

These courses are termed “First Half” or “Last (Second) Half” because they are offered during a portion of the semester.
