Online Programs & Degrees

UIS has been utilizing online learning for 20 years. Not only is this option one of great convenience for students because of its flexibility—it also provides the same quality of education students have come to expect from on-campus courses.

Applying for an online program works the same as applying for an on-campus program. Visit the Online Programs site for more information on enrolling for course, online orientation and more!
