Next Steps for Undergraduate and Graduate Students

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

  1. Submit your final high school transcript.

    • Freshman students: Mail official high school transcript to the address below. If you have dual credit, also submit official college transcript.

    • Transfer Students: Mail all official transcripts to the address below.

  2. Submit your proof of bacterial meningitis vaccination to UIW Health Services.

    Texas State law mandates that all entering students under the age of 22 provide a certificate signed by a healthcare provider or an official immunization record verifying that a student has been vaccinated against bacterial meningitis, or has received a booster during the five years preceding admission to the University.

    Find more information on how to submit your Meningitis vaccination record here.

  3. Register for Classes.

    Contact the Advising Center to register for classes. Proof of meningitis vaccination must be submitted before registering for classes (students under 22 years old).
  4. Apply for on-campus housing (if you plan to live on campus).

    Information and applications are available at Residence Life website.
  5. Contact the Business Office to set up a payment plan.

    Students must pay tuition or register for a payment plan before the semester begins.
  6. Submit your health insurance waiver (if needed).

    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. Visit the Business Office web page for more information.
