If any of these are discovered on or after the first day of instruction, dismissal can occur.
Freshman students whose admission has been denied may, in certain circumstances, appeal the decision. Find more information on the Admission Appeals page.
Guiding Principals for Admission Process
UIS adheres to the following guiding principles for admission processes: fairness to applicants, transparency of process, and equality of access.
International Credential Evaluation
Students who apply to the University of Illinois at Springfield on or after July 1, 2019, and have international academic records must arrange (at their expense) to have their record(s) evaluated by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member organization. Our recommended evaluation service is World Education Services (WES), but we will accept an evaluation from any NACES member. All evaluations will typically include certified copies of the documents used to conduct the evaluation. If certified copies of your academic record(s) are not included with the evaluation, you will be responsible for requesting that official documents be sent to UIS from each institution attended, along with an English translation (if the records are in a language other than English).
UIS follow the University of Illinois Residency Regulations. For more information see, Residency Information for the University of Illinois. If you have questions, after reviewing the Requirements and Frequently Asked Questions, contact the Admission department at 217/206-4847.
