Financial Policies

UIW proudly follows the Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students (HEROES) Act of 2003 when making financial aid judgments for covered individuals. Affected students should contact the Office of Financial Assistance ( to discuss options.

Tuition and Fees

If the student is readmitted to the same academic program, for the first academic year in which the student returns, the University will assess the tuition and fee charges that the student was or would have been assessed for the academic year during which the student left the University. If the student is readmitted to a different program, the University will assess no more than the tuition and fee charges that other students in that program were assessed for that academic year.

Tuition Discounts

Tuition discounts are available for part-time/full-time undergraduate or graduate students who qualify as Active Duty Military, and their dependents; Civilian Department of Defense Employees (no dependents); and Retired Military (no dependents).

Military and Civilian Department of Defense discounts apply to any student enrolled with the Main Campus. Those students eligible are active duty military with or without a Tuition Assistance Form and their dependents, civilian Department of Defense employees (no dependents), and retired military (no dependents).
