The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

University of Illinois at Springfield

Tracking students’ progress and achievement throughout their college careers, regardless of the path taken, puts the focus where it belongs, on individual success. Being a part of the Student Achievement Measure (SAM) also provides UIS with the data needed to continually improve retention efforts for all student populations, and build on a long history of valuing transfer students. More than 5,000 students enroll each year, seeking a University of Illinois degree in the friendly learning environment of a smaller university. Located in the state capital, UIS has a special mission in public affairs and has graduated thousands of future leaders in the public and non-profit sectors.
