  • Orientation Next Steps

    Here are a few items you will need to make sure you’ve taken care of between now and the spring.

    1. Submit your final transcript. Please ask your institution to send your final transcript to:
      University of the Incarnate Word
      Office of Admissions
      4301 Broadway, CPO 285
      San Antonio, TX 78209
    2. Submit your proof of vaccination against meningitis to Health Services. You can email them to healthsvcs@uiwtx.edu, or drop off to Health Services in person. (Students under age 22 only.)
    3. Apply for on-campus housing (if you plan to live on campus). Information and applications are available at uiw.edu/housing.
    4. Visit the Business Office. Students must pay tuition, or enter a payment plan, before the semester begins. Late fees will be assessed on delinquent accounts.
    5. Submit insurance waiver (if already insured). All UIW students must have medical insurance. If you are insured by a family plan, please ensure you waive coverage through the University to avoid charges. Contact the Business Office for more information.
