We provide undergraduate textbooks at no charge.

High textbook costs is an issue that all institutions of higher learning must address. Here at UIW, we know it is difficult for some students to afford textbooks on top of tuition.

At the undergraduate level, UIW maintains a common Core Curriculum with a liberal arts content that integrates the five tenets that are the foundation of the mission of our university; Faith, Innovation, Truth, Education and Service.
