Application: Applicants must submit a non-refundable application fee. Application information can be found at: http://www.uis.edu/admissions/applyNow.html

Admission Requirement(s): Admission to the online program is competitive. The online B.A. program has a separate admission process. The number of students admitted each term is limited by enrollment capacity. Applicants are considered on a rolling basis for the fall and spring semesters. The admissions criteria include:

  • a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 (on 4.0 scale), and
  • a minimum of 30 semester hours of undergraduate coursework.
To apply, applicants are also required to present a rationale for pursuit of the online degree format as well as discuss their access to the Internet and their possession of relevant technological/computer skills.
Preference for admission will be given to applicants who:
  • Effectively demonstrate they are unable to attend on campus classes because of distance, work or care giving issues, or other circumstances that are incompatible with regularly scheduled on-ground class offerings.
  • Have either completed at least 60 hours of undergraduate coursework or earned an Associate’s degree.
  • Complete the application process by January 15, 2016 for enrollment in the fall 2016 semester.
Review for entry to the UIS online B.A. is a two-part process:
  • Applications are first evaluated by the UIS Admissions Office for fulfillment of University requirements.
  • The application file is then sent to the online B.A. Program for online degree admission consideration.

Prerequisite(s): 30 semester hours of undergraduate coursework.
