The University of the Incarnate Word is proud to serve as an educational provider in the Air University's AU-ABC Program. We are pleased to provide programs and courses that are airman friendly.

How is UIW different?

  • No fees or expenses. TA benefits cover all costs.
  • FREE textbooks. We will supply your textbooks at no charge to you whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student.
  • Accelerated 8-week courses with six terms a year
  • No proctored exams for online coursework. All of your work is done online when your class is held in the online format.
  • We will also schedule our classes for you. When you maintain continuous enrollment, you will find classes you need each term.

We will work with you to complete your coursework with or without internet access. You will have a personal advisor who will help along the way of achieving your degree. You can complete a regionally accredited degree from an institution founded in 1881 without ever coming to campus—but we would love to have you come to commencement!


Active Duty Air Force members should apply for Tuition Assistance through their Air Force Portal account at the Air Force Virtual Education Center site.


Students should always consult their service education office before engaging in any voluntary education endeavor.

This is an excellent degree for military students. It is a degree that all areas of business are looking for in their employees. Graduates of this degree will be able to take a values-based approach to change in organizations. In addition, this degree requires a large amount of elective credit which means your military credits will be used to move toward graduation.
