When the former Sangamon State University became the third campus of the University of Illinois in 1995, many alumni expressed the desire to obtain replacement diploma certificates reflecting the new identity of the institution.
UIS diploma certificates, with a presentation cover bearing the seal of the University of Illinois, are currently available through the Office of Advancement for a $35.00 processing fee.
UIS certificates read as follows:
