All checks must include the student’s name, student account number, and specific term to insure proper credit to account.

The following credit cards are accepted: Master Card, Visa, American Express and Discover.

Financial Aid: Students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and a UIW Student Information form every year. To be eligible for federal loans, you must be enrolled at least half-time. Students enrolled in terms of eight weeks or less will not receive disbursements for federal loans until they attend half-time hours for the overall semester. A student is limited to a maximum of two courses per 8-week term. Visit the Financial Aid website for more info

Payment Plans: The student can divide their charges into installments. It is the responsibility of the student to enroll in a payment plan each semester. Failure to remit these payments may result in the withholding of credits, transcripts, diplomas, registration. In addition, a late payment fee may be assessed each month for not submitting tuition payments, as agreed. However, this will not exempt students from liability for those charges. Enrollment into this plan includes an application fee of $50.

Students are strongly encouraged to register in advance for both semester terms at the beginning of a semester.  For example, registering for both Fall I & II by the start of the Fall I semester.  This allows tuition charges for both terms to be included in the payment plan sooner with the availability of more installments.

Enrolling in a Payment Plan: Visit the E-payment Center by logging into the MyWord Portal.  You will see a link to enroll in a ADCAP/Online Payment Plan.

Deferred Tuition is available to those students who use the following methods of payment:

  • VA benefits: Requires the student complete all requirements with the UIW Veterans Affairs Office each term.
  • Military Tuition Assistance: Requires the student initiates and completes TA set up with the military and/or sends TA vouchers to the EAP Business Office by the first day of class.
  • Employer Paid Tuition: Requires the students provide a letter/document each semester as verification.

Registration: Student Tuition Account must be current in order to register for future semesters.
Registration at the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) constitutes a financial responsibility to UIW.  It is ultimately the students responsibility to ensure their tuition is paid.

Drop Administrative Fee

An administrative fee of $50 is assessed for every course withdrawal. The only exception is for our active-duty military students, as a contingency of our partnership agreements.
