Online Courses Spring 2018

The courses listed on this page are hyperlinked to the actual UIS schedule.  You can follow this link to see useful information like the number of available spaces, course descriptions, and whether or not a waitlist exists.

Realize that this list  includes only the course that are most likely options for online LIS majors. It does not include courses that some students may wish to consider: graduate level courses, Teacher Preparation, or courses in BIO, BUS, MGT, MAT, and CSC that require prerequisites that most LIS majors have not completed. Please use the UIS dynamic schedule to find the options.

If the spring semester will be your final semester, you should plan to enroll in LIS 451 Senior Seminar.  Please email Andy Egizi for registration approval.

IMPORTANT:

  • All Psychology courses require approval.  The online approval request form will be available on the PSY program website on November 1.
  • All HIS and ENG courses will be restricted to online majors in those programs until December 4, at which point, open seats will be available for other students.  You must request approval for HIS and ENG courses by emailing Michelle Kenny.
