Registration is a integrated process that involves academic advisement, course selection, registering (either on-line or through the submission of a registration form), payment of all charges, and attending class. New students may register through the many Orientation/Registration opportunities scheduled through the Office of Admissions. Current students register after first meeting with their academic advisor.
All new students or prospective students must go through the Admissions office first. To find out what the requirements are for Admission, click HERE or call 210-829-6005.

1. Contact your Faculty Advisor to see how they are Scheduling their Advising Sessions:
All incoming students that are not listed as first-time freshman are advised by the University Advising Center (UAC) initially. During your first semester here at UIW you are assigned to a faculty advisor. Students will work with the same faculty advisor throughout their time at UIW, unless they change their major or advisor. The UAC Area Coordinator that handles the student’s major will then become the student’s secondary advisor. All students must get signatures, advised, and registered by their Faculty advisor.
Find out who your Faculty Advisor is:
Please Note: Make contact with your Faculty Advisor to see how they are scheduling appointments, group sessions, etc. and schedule some time to meet with them.
