BELOW AVERAGE

University of Illinois at Springfield graduation rate is below the national average.

46% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to University of Illinois at Springfield completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

Overall Rating:

The instructors were great but the administration is horrible. It's very difficult to understand how much online classes will cost and they're very overpriced for what you get.Hard to contact. Would not recommend.

Overall Rating:

While I am impressed with the University from the student's standpoint, I am very frustrated with the finance office. This department's approach is disorganized, confusing, and takes way too long. In some instances you have to "fax" documents to them. (2017?) Their website is confusing and cumbersome in comparison. One of the documents that was faxed from our bank to this department was "misplaced" which is completely unacceptable given the information contained. Our bank said that they did fax the document as instructed. They were correct. The finance department misplaced it and then found it in a stack of other paperwork a week later. The website for UIS is overwhelming and ineffective. The standard for a good web experience is a three click rule. That doesn't apply to this website at all. Again, I believe the education and student experience is probably as good or better than other Universities. The way they interact in the finance department needs a complete overhaul.

Overall Rating:

Financial aid department is the worst. Horrible with students. I hope they replace advisors.

Overall Rating:

The education isn't the worst... but, it seems unstable. It was constantly experiencing the kind of changes in staff a university should not have to experience.
