SPS Undergraduate Admissions Requirements

Guidelines for admission:

  • Applicants must be out of high school for at least 5 years.
  • A grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 is suggested for admission to the University. Based on academic criteria, applicants may be asked to take an academic placement test.

Applicants should have completed 3-years of full-time employment. (For the purpose of this program, an adult who has worked full-time inside the home for a minimum of 3-years will fulfill the employment requirement.)

The residency requirement at the undergraduate level is 45 credit hours. 36 hours of the 45-hour residency requirement must be completed within the last 45 credit hours taken for degree completion. The 45-hour residency requirement can be fulfilled with courses taken in any instruction format offered at UIW. 12 of the total 45-hour residency requirement must be upper division courses in the major field of study.



To Apply:

Fill out the application online. For assistance with an application, please email our admissions staff or call us at (210) 757-0202 or toll free at (877) 603-1130.

Review and follow the guidelines noted above for undergraduate admissions.

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.

Note to current UIW main campus students:

SPS is 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. Courses are taught by scholar practitioners who expect students to share their work experience in classes.
UIW main-campus students who are within 15 credits of graduation and cannot get the classes they need on-campus may ask their advisor to take a class online. The student’s main campus dean must also approve. The dean of the School of Professional Studies has final approval. Students who are allowed to take courses are advised of the expectations for the classes.
