Upper Iowa University

That rich history, coupled with a student-centered mission, has created a springboard for UIU to become a recognized innovator in offering accredited, quality programs through flexible, multiple delivery systems, including online and self-paced study.
From our Fayette Campus to our U.S. Centers, our International Centers to our Military Centers, UIU has the people in place to help you succeed.
Through our student success stories, you’ll learn how others have benefited from a UIU education—and you’ll begin to understand the significant advantages a UIU education can bring to your life, and ultimately to the lives of your family members
Upper Iowa University is awarded a $650,000 S-STEM Grant from the National Science Foundation. In addition to funding seven scholarships to be awarded each year to UIU freshman in 2017 and 2018, grant funds will be used by the University to research and strengthen STEM-related educational and programming opportunities — not only for UIU but all educational institutions. Upper Iowa is among 30 schools nationwide to be newly named to the PAVE (Peer Advisors for Veteran Education) network. The Institute of International Education’s Generation Study Abroad® initiative recognizes UIU for having already exceeded their goals to boost study abroad participation.
