We hope you are excited to begin your new journey at UIW. Our faculty and staff are committed to partnering with you to achieve the educational goals you have set for yourself. UIW students are expected to take a responsible role in attaining academic success. Before beginning your first semester at UIW, it is important to understand the expectations we have of our students:
Satisfactory Academic Progress --You must maintain a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA at the end of each academic year for all credit hours attempted at UIW and complete 75% of coursework attempted. If your cumulative GPA drops below the minimum requirement, you will no longer be eligible for financial aid. To help ensure your academic success, UIW expects you to comply with the following support measures throughout your first semester:
Cardinal E-mail Address – After confirming your attendance at UIW, you were assigned a Cardinal e-mail address. All university communications, including notices from First-Year Engagement, Registrar, Financial Aid, Business Office, etc. will be directed to your Cardinal e-mail account. We strongly encourage that you check your Cardinal e-mail frequently. Failure to do so could result in missing important deadlines and announcements.
We hope you carefully review these policies and expectations. Again, they are in place to help guide your time at UIW and help you advance to graduation.
