Whether you are on base in the United States or deployed, Upper Iowa University can help you get the education you desire. Our seamless approach allows you to study at one of our educational centers, switch to online classes if that’s more convenient, or join our independent study program if an internet connection is no longer easily available. We are committed to your educational success and we can fit into your busy lifestyle.
We appreciate your dedication to serving our country, and we are honored to give you the flexibility you need to fulfill your military commitment while working on your educational and career objectives. Special accommodations are available for military personnel who are required to deploy or go on temporary duty during the course of their studies.
Upper Iowa has been recognized by Military Advanced Education and G.I. Jobs as one of the top “Military-Friendly Schools” in both 2009 and 2010. UIU is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon program.
Military Learning Centers offer traditional classroom settings without leaving the installation to both active military personnel and civilians in the area. Courses also are available online and as independent study as your duty status changes.
If you’re currently in the civilian community, we have education centers in Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois and Louisiana.
Online courses are delivered via the internet, bringing the classroom to wherever you are. We have six, eight-week sessions each year.
