Committed to Access

The University of Illinois System is committed to improving opportunities for our diverse population to access to an affordable, world-class public education at our three universities. We're holding costs down, increasing the number of available scholarships, adding new transfer agreements with community colleges, and offering more online and non-traditional learning opportunities.

Our stories

Here's a small sampling of how we are providing an accessible education to students within Illinois, across the nation and globe:

All citizens of our state--not just students--can access the knowledge and expertise across the U of I System through a variety of public engagement opportunities, one of the most recognizable being that of the state-wide University of Illinois Extension. Extension provides practical, accessible education to help people, business, and communities solve problems, develop skills, and build a better future.
