About UIS

Many students are attracted to University of Illinois at Springfield because it combines large university offerings with a small college environment.

Academics at UI Springfield include more than 20 bachelor’s degree offerings and more than 20 graduate programs. Health, Business, Liberal Arts And Sciences, Education, Human Services, Public Affairs and Administration are some of the diverse subject areas available.

Students at UI also participate in collaborative research with faculty at one of UI’s research centers.

Student life is also vibrant, particularly with the arts. A student theatre, musical ensembles and concerts, a student art gallery and a student-operated radio station are just some examples of UI’s arts offerings.

While UI has rich and eclectic offerings, with fewer than 5,000 students the campus remains small and offers students maximum opportunities for faculty and fellow student interactions.

Financial aid is available to those who qualify, as are graduate assistantships and fellowships.

As it is part of the University of Illinois system, admissions are fairly competitive and comparable to those at U of I’s main campus.
