In 1995, 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. UIW realized the difficulties working adults had balancing a career, family and social responsibilities when wanting to start or continue their college degree. We are primarily an evening and weekend studies program that meets the needs of working adults.

Students are encouraged to attend two courses, each 8-week term. This pace will allow the student to earn 36 credits per year, accelerating their time to graduation.

Class days and times are:
     1. Two nights per week; Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday. Each evening there are two class periods: 5:30 pm - 7:40 pm and 7:50 pm - 10:00 pm.
     2. One night per week from 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm. (Applies to undergraduate classes at Saidoff, University Centers, and all graduate level classes.)
     3. Hybrid classes are offered on Wednesday and Saturday mornings at our Northwest Center. Classes meet for 2 hours and 10 minutes once per week. The remainder of the week’s class time is spent working online.
          a. Wednesday classes meet 9-11:10 am or 11:20 am–1:30 pm.
          b. Saturday classes meet 8:30–10:40 am or 10:50 am–1 pm.

To Apply:

Fill out the online application. Application deadline is the Sunday one week prior to term start date. For assistance with an application, please email our admissions staff or call us at (210) 757-0202 or toll free at (877) 603-1130.

Students who applied and were previously enrolled in ADCaP or UIW Online but have not attended class in more than two terms do not need to complete a new application. To re-enroll into classes, please fill out the Returning Student Readmission Form.

Review and follow the requirements 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 after you've submitted an application. 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
