Welcome to Upper Iowa University. UIU is a private, not-for-profit university providing fully accredited undergraduate and graduate degree programs to about 6,200 students worldwide. You can choose the learning environment that works best for you – on a residential campus, at one of UIU’s academic centers near your home, on a military base, at one of our international centers in Hong Kong or Malyasia, or wherever you are through the convenience of online courses and independent study. And if your needs change, you can switch to one of our other programs and still meet your educational goals, graduating with a single UIU transcript.
Upper Iowa is ranked in the top 25 percent of U.S. colleges and universities for enhancing student learning by the Council for Aid to Education and ranked number 4 by the Online Education Database (OEDb).
You’ll want to check out our unique two-at a time curriculum that lets you take just two courses during an eight-week term. We offer six terms each year. And you’ll find we have over 40 majors, including interdisciplinary studies, to meet your needs. You can select from associate of arts programs in liberal arts and business, or five certificate programs in focused specialties, or our unique RN-BSN program, or master’s degrees in Education, Higher Education Administration, Business, and Public Administration.
Check out what we have to offer and come for a campus visit or an open house at one of our educational centers. And if you need help, just contact one of our admissions counselors. We look forward to meeting you.
