The information below details a student’s typical annual expenses for the current academic year.  It does not reflect any financial aid or scholarship discounts.  More than 90 percent of the students at the University of the Incarnate Word receive some form of financial assistance (grants, scholarships, work-study and/or educational loans).  If you apply and qualify for financial assistance, you can reduce your sticker price.

The total annual cost of attendance is comprised of direct costs (charges for tuition and fees), plus indirect costs (allowances for room and board, books and supplies, transportation and other personal/miscellaneous costs).

You can review detailed tuition and fee information and payment plan options online.  If you have questions regarding your tuition and fee charges or possible tuition discounts, contact the UIW Business Office at 829-6043.
