San Antonio – The University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) has announced a new tuition discount program to support families that have multiple dependent children at UIW from the same household.
Eligible families will receive a $5,000 discount for their second student enrolled at UIW and a $10,000 discount for a third or more sibling. In the case of twins or triplets, eligible amounts will be divided evenly. To be eligible for the program, all siblings must be enrolled as full-time, undergraduate, main campus students and must reside in the same household. Although the discounts are not need-based, students must be verified as dependents on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application each year.
“We recognize the challenges that families with multiple students have in affording the high level of education we provide,” said UIW President Dr. Lou Agnese. “Our hope with this new program is to bridge the gap in making a UIW education attainable for those who would otherwise go elsewhere due to the high costs associated with having multiple children in college at the same time.”
Funds will be applied to tuition only. Students that receive other UIW scholarships, UIW grants or UIW discounts may combine the awards as long as the total does not exceed their full-time tuition. Students with UIW athletic scholarships or UIW dependent waivers do not qualify.
Siblings must apply to receive the discount and must submit a new application annually. The discount is only for the Fall and Spring semesters.
