Continuing Education

The iSchool is pleased to offer continuing education students an opportunity to take graduate level courses. Formal admission to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is not necessary, but a bachelor's degree is required. Permission to take additional credit hours may be granted in special circumstances (e.g., alumni seeking professional development, school media endorsement), but please note that a maximum of 12 hours may be applied toward a degree upon matriculation. Please refer to our Continuing Education Guide for more information.

Spring 2017 course enrollment is now closed.

Please contact Karla Lucht, at (217) 244-3810 or klucht [at] if you have questions regarding continuing education at the iSchool.
