Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
You pay slightly more than you would for a relatively popular state university because UIW is a private, but the small class sizes and quality of education are worth it. The number of resources available to students is also something that you pay for that is worth it, if you take advantage of the Wellness Center (equipped with exercise equipment) and the Learning Assistance Center (tutoring center).

I have only two complaints. I take issue with some of the practices of the administration. There is a fair amount of bureaucratic red tape that you will face, but I get the impression that most universities have this issue and that it is something you just have to deal with almost anywhere you decide to attend.

Lastly, I feel that I am charged too much for the food and snacks here. The snacks are overpriced, and the meal plan charges would be more reasonable if the cafeteria offered both healthy as well as comfort food options side by side on a more consistent basis. Sometimes I will walk into the cafeteria and don't see very many or even any healthy meal options, but you can more often than not find something healthy to eat. There is a small vegetarian section for those of you who don't eat meat, but it is not always stocked.

Incarnate Word is a very expensive school, I would not recommend it however to students who will not make use of their very expensive education.
Jessica from Sherwood, AR
I appreciate how much money UIW helps me save, I pay about half my full tuition price here. As long as you meet Financial Aid half way they are always willing to help.

Matthew from San Antonio, TX
The school is a little too pricey but if you can afford it go because you will enjoy every minute, even the I just want to give up on trying to fit all this information in my head moments.
