Admissions for Current Students

If you have applied and enrolled in classes at UIW, you are not required to fill out a new application. Please review the admissions process below.

Previous School of Professional Studies or School of Applied Sciences (formerly ADCaP and UIW Online) Students:

Students Seeking Readmission: If you previously attended UIW's School of Professional Studies (SPS) or School of Applied Sciences (SAS) but have had a break of enrollment for over two terms and did not complete the UIW degree attempted, please complete the Student Readmission Form. You do not need to complete a new application. If you have attended another institution since your last enrollment, you must submit an official transcript of coursework attempted.

Note: Former UIW students who have previously completed a degree and wish to apply for an additional UIW degree will need to apply for admission to that program using the application.

For current UIW main-campus students who intend to: 

  • Take a class with SPS or SAS but remain a main-campus student
  • Transfer schools completely to SPS or SAS as a full or part-time student

SPS and SAS are designed for the adult learner who has been out of high school for five years and has worked in a full-time job for three years. Professors are scholar practitioners who expect students to share their work experience in classes.  Classes are taught in an accelerated eight-week term with all of the learning outcomes required of a typical sixteen-week semester.  The instruction format may be completely online, taught in the classroom in the evening or on weekends at a UIW learning center, or may be blended with both online and classroom instruction.
