Why Attend?

University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) is dedicated to the success of military students and provides support through services, structure and special benefits. UIW provides free textbooks to all undergraduate and graduate active-duty military in e-book format for easy access. Degree programs are developed to maximize military service and expertise while providing a foundation for life after the military. Many of our faculty and instructors have former military experience and understand the needs of active-duty and transitioning service members. If a service member or veteran decides to continue coursework after military benefits for a year are exhausted, UIW will honor the active-duty/veteran rate for the adult education programs! We recognize our active duty military through events, recognition ceremonies, and through collaborative projects with military education programs and organization. Our Center for Veteran Affairs welcomes military students and provides them with additional support from fellow military students. We partner with the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce on Celebrate America's Military for campus and city-wide events. Additionally we support several military recruiting events in San Antonio including the Our Community Salutes San Antonio event honoring students committing to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. With our main campus in San Antonio, Texas, military-city, USA, we know the meaning of honoring our service members by recognition and action.
