The degree or certificate is the same one that our on-campus students receive.The online programs are taught by the same faculty who teach our on-campus courses.

All students accepted into online degree programs, including those residing out of state, pay e-tuition, which is far below the rate for traditional out of state students attending UIS.

Our online students work directly with an online program coordinator. The coordinators are experts on their programs and help navigate any administrative issues.  Are you ready to be an online learner?

What our alums have to say...

Hannah T. – Political Science & Stars Symposium Presenter

As an online student, I felt like very much a part of the community.  I feel like overall it as a really successful and inclusive college experience for me.   My professors made it really easy to feel like a classroom setting.  My professors created a very inclusive collaborative environment.




Alicia M – Legal Studies

“If it were not for this program offered through UIS, I am not sure that I would have been able to take the steps needed to prepare for law school. UIS offered me an affordable and realistic option when I was trying to determine how to reach my goals. I will be forever thankful for the opportunity I was given as an online student at UIS.”
