What is the Link Program?

Simply put – the Link program provides a bridge that saves you time and money. UIU’s Link program allows our undergraduate students to earn graduate degrees faster and with less cost. How does it work? Those that have excelled in their current UIU program with at least a 2.75 GPA are eligible to take up to four graduate classes as an undergraduate that:

  1. Complete your undergraduate requirements.
  2. Count towards your UIU graduate degree upon graduate school acceptance.
  3. Help you save money! With the Link program, graduate level classes cost the same as undergraduate classes – allowing you to save up to $7,500 in tuition costs.

What are students saying about the Link program? Meet John who will earn 2 UIU degrees in less than 2 years!

I can't say enough good things about UIU!! Back in March I received a phone call from my now advisor. In just 10 short minutes I was online enrolling in UIU for the Public Administration BS program and now after completing 7 courses I am well on my way to my BS Degree and also enrolled in the MPA Link program which will allows me to not only earn my BS but earn my Masters degree shortly thereafter. Transferring credits was a breeze, and most were accepted into my degree program. I highly recommend prospective students look into UIU!! Because of the staff at UIU, in just 18 short months I will earn my BS AND my Masters degree.
