iMSA Access Points

You have options.

There are four access points to University of Illinois online business education. You can apply for the iMSA, inquire about our Performance-Based Admissions Track (PAT), enroll as a non-degree student, or sign up for non-credit options.

Some students who apply to the iMSA like to get a head-start on learning and get back into the practice of being a student by taking a course for academic credit while their application is in process. This is also a good option if you’re looking for a way to build up your academic record prior to applying to the program.

You don’t have to apply to the iMSA to take for-credit courses or to enroll in non-credit classes and certificate programs. They’re all available as stand-alone options.
