Tuition and Financial Regulations

The University of the Incarnate Word is an independent institution and receives no direct support from state or federal taxes. Subsequently, all of the instructional and operating costs of the University are paid by student tuition. The difference between such costs and the amount paid by the student is subsidized by income from endowment, grants for special projects, and gifts from alumni and other friends who recognize the value of our educational program. 

The University endeavors to arrange loans, discounts, grants-in-aid, employment, and scholarships to enable students to continue in an academic program.
