UIW Orientation

OL Cardinals

 Welcome, Class of 2019!    

As you begin your exciting new journey as a UIW Cardinal, we encourage you to make the most of your academic experience by attending summer orientation. During our one-day orientation session, you will have the opportunity to participate in activities designed to help familiarize you with our campus and prepare you for classes here at Incarnate Word. The program includes advising, registration, academic sessions and many more informative activities.

Orientation is required for Freshmen and will take place from approximately 9:00am - 5:00pm.

There will be a $10.00 fee per parent or family member attending orientation. This fee is payable during the orientation check-in process. Due to safety regulations and fire codes, we respectfully ask that you limit the number of guests accompanying you to orientation to two.


  1. Submit your confirmation fee (matriculation).
  2. Fill out your pre-scheduling questionnaire and register for orientation.
  3. Submit your health and meningitis records to UIW Health Services.
  4. Attend orientation!
  • Optional: If you selected a date when registering for orientation and would like to change it, you may submit your change of date request to orientation@uiwtx.edu.
  • Requests will be reviewed within 48-72 hours. Not all requests will be granted due to space limitations.  If your request has been successfully processed, you will receive a confirmation email with your new orientation date.

Please be sure that you have taken care of your confirmation fee and submitted your proof of meningitis before attending orientation.
