Colleges in Illinois

Large universities, small liberal arts colleges and art schools are among the many different types of four-year, degree-granting institutions located throughout Illinois. Most colleges and universities in Illinois are privately funded, including several prestigious National Universities, but there are about a dozen public colleges and universities in the state.
