Graduate Admission Procedure:

  1. Submit an online application or print a paper application.
  2. Pay your Application Fee.
  3. Request official transcripts from each college or university previously attended. These transcripts MUST be mailed directly to the Admissions Office from the college or university
  4. Submit a score report of nationally recognized entrance exams as designated by specific programs to the Office of Admissions. Students should consult with individual programs for specific entrance requirements.
  5. Consult with the appropriate program advisor regarding additional admissions requirements

When the Office of Admissions receives the required credentials, they are then submitted to the program director for evaluation and recommendation for a decision. The Dean of Research and Graduate Studies will notify the applicant via mail regarding the action taken upon the application. Once accepted, students will be assigned a graduate program advisor for advising and registration.

Admission decisions are official and valid for one calendar year, from the original date of acceptance into the desired graduate or doctoral program.

Credentials submitted for admission become the sole property of the University of the Incarnate Word and will not be returned under any circumstances.

The University of the Incarnate Word reserves the right to refuse admission to an applicant or to request the withdrawal of a student enrolled in a program for purposes deemed adequate by the Dean of Research and Graduate Studies.
