Distance Learning at UIW
Virtual University at UIW
You can earn your degree completely online from UIW. We understand the difficulties faced by many of today's adult learners who are balancing careers, caring for their families, and managing life's many priorities. Our Virtual University, an extension of UIW, provides a way for you to access the same quality education you'd receive on our campuses, but at home, on a schedule that works for you!
Learn from the same faculty that teaches on our Texas campuses. The courses offered through our Virtual University are regionally, nationally, and professionally accredited distance-learning programs in a convenient online format.
