In 1995, UIW realized the difficulties working adults had balancing a career, family and social responsibilities have when wanting to continue their college degrees. The Adult Degree Completion Program (ADCaP) was established with the purpose of extending the benefits of undergraduate education to persons unable to attend college in a traditional college setting. We are an evening and weekend studies program designed to meet the needs of working adults wanting to begin or complete their bachelor’s degree.

We are committed to:

  • A quality education offered in an accelerated format.
  • Scheduling the courses a student needs in a timely and reasonable manner for degree completion.
  • Providing students with the services they need for degree completion.
  • Listening to the needs of students, reshaping and reforming our programs to meet those needs, while continuing the overall Mission of the University of the Incarnate Word.

The program is designed with flexibility in mind. Students attend one or two courses, each 8-week term. Each course meets two nights per week; Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday. Each evening there are two class periods: 5:30 p.m. - 7:40 p.m. and 7:50 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. Courses can also be taken on Saturdays during the regular 8-week term: 8:00 AM—12:00 PM.

To Apply:

Fill out the online application listed on the top right.  For assistance with an application, please email our admissions staff.

Review and follow the policies noted for undergraduate and graduate admissions.

ADCaP advisors at University of the Incarnate Word counsel each student on their degree plan.

As part of the admissions process, request official transcripts from all previous schools you have attended.  No admission can be completed, and no formal degree plan prepared, until we receive current (issued within the last 6 months) official transcripts from all post-secondary schools you have attended.  Students with fewer than 24 transferable hours must also submit high school transcripts as well.

Official transcripts should be mailed to:

ADCaP Admissions
University of the Incarnate Word
4301 Broadway CPO#294
San Antonio, Texas 78209

To expedite processing, you may fax all of your unofficial transcripts to 210-428-6352 or e-mail them to

Blended Classes

Daytime blended classes are available. Classes meet once a week and the rest of the course is online.
