U.S. Army

The University of the Incarnate Word is proud to serve as an educational provider for Army soldiers. We are pleased to provide programs and courses that are military friendly.

How is UIW different?

  • No fees or expenses. Tuition Assistance (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.
  • No proctored exams for online coursework. All of your work is done online when your class is held in the online format.
  • We will not charge you or require you do a certain number of classes in order to have us evaluate your AARTS. We do it immediately and for FREE!
  • We will also schedule our classes for you. When you maintain continuous enrollment, you will find classes you need each term.

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!

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

Admissions and Application

Active Duty Army, Army National Guard and Army Reserves should apply for Tuition Assistance through their GoArmyEd account. GoArmyEd students using Tuition Assistance must use the GoArmyEd Portal to apply and register for classes.

U.S. Army students must process their enrollment by completing and submitting the Common Application through the GoArmyEd portal at www.goarmyed.com.

Before you submit an application:

  • You must contact an ACES counselor or the Education Center to assign University of the Incarnate Word as the home institution and make a choice of degree.
  • Choose a degree listed on the Academics page. View the VIA Academic Plans

Once the UIW Admissions Counselor receives your application, a welcome message is sent to the military email address on the GoArmy application with more information.
