The GRE/GMAT is required only for Tier III graduate admissions and is available at these Corpus Christi testing centers.
UIW understands the difficulties of balancing a career, family, and social responsibilities, so we have designed our undergraduate and graduate programs with the adult student in mind. We are an evening studies program designed to meet the needs of working adults wanting to begin or complete their degree.
Classes meet two nights a week to meet your busy schedule. Students attend one or two courses each 8-week term. For our Undergraduate degree's, courses meet two nights per week; Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 p.m. - 7:40 p.m. and 7:50 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. For our Graduate degree's, classes are held two evenings per week; Monday and Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Additional Information regarding Undergraduate Admissions
Other admission criteria as specified by the discipline may include but are not limited to:
Discipline-specific requirements are listed under each program description. Petitions for admission with exception to the published criteria must be recommended by the Program Admissions Committee and approved by the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research. Exceptions must be documented with an explanation. A copy of this documentation must be included in the student's permanent file.
Conditional admission may be granted upon approval of the Program Admissions Committee and the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research. Criteria and the time limit for removing conditions will be specified in the letter of admission.
Students in good standing at a recognized graduate school who wish to enroll for a maximum of nine credit hours and who plan to continue at the school of original admission may be admitted as transient graduate students. Students must fill out a formal application for admission and submit either a statement of good standing from the dean of the graduate school where they are enrolled or an official transcript. Enrolling in additional course work beyond the nine hours will require application for a change of status.
Non-degree Seeking Students
If non-degree seeking, an applicant to Graduate School must submit:
Non-degree-seeking students may register for a cumulative total of no more than nine credit hours of graduate course work under the normal grading system. Students holding a master’s degree who do not wish to apply for admission as degree-seeking students may register for a cumulative total of no more than 12 credit hours of graduate course work under the normal grading system.
Non-degree seeking students are expected to conform to graduate standards of scholarship. In some cases, credit hours taken under a non-degree seeking status and under the normal grading system may be applied toward a degree if a student later gains admission into a graduate program. Such credits will be evaluated as though they were transfer credits from another institution and must be approved by the Program Advisor and the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research.
Non-degree seeking students may not be eligible for some forms of financial aid.
