University Advising Center

Welcome to the University Advising Center!

At the University Advising Center (UAC), our goal is to help you get the most from your University of the Incarnate Word education. UAC academic advisors can help you create your path to graduation and teach you all about the UIW resources that will help make your journey a more successful one.

In support of the efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, the University Advising Center is operating remotely at this time. Advisors are available via email, phone and Zoom appointments during office hours. Contact us to schedule an appointment.

UIW stands in prayer and solidarity with those around the world as we work to contain the spread of COVID-19. Please visit for information and resources regarding UIW’s COVID-19 response.
