To assist graduate programs, the Graduate College has created Grad Data.

Using DMI and UOPB data, this interactive tool provides a snapshot of four key areas of graduate education and program administration: Selectivity, Time to Degree, Underrepresented Minority Enrollments, and External Support.

Information in Grad Data is restricted to faculty and staff at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and requires a University of Illinois NetID. Others can see the publicly available information on the DMI website ( and the UOPB website (

A text-only accessible version of this dashboard is available.

selectivity icon

Selectivity measures the acceptance rate of doctoral programs as the percentage of applications that are accepted for admission.


Time to Degree is measured as the time (in years) from the first doctoral (or other graduate) enrollment to completion of the doctoral degree.

diversity icon

Underrepresented Minority Enrollment (URM) is measured as a percentage of Fall Enrollment. URM is defined as domestic students who self-identify as American Indian/Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, African American, or Hispanic/Latino.

External support icon

External Support is measured per department as a percentage of all enrolled graduate students (at the masters and doctoral level) whose tuition is paid by the student or as a tuition remission or an educational allowance.

Grad Experience, available to those with a University of Illinois NetID, provides information about doctoral student satisfaction. For questions about the Grad Data, Grad Experience, or the Graduate Education Dashboard, contact us at
