Returning Students

Be the exception to the rule.

Students who were previously enrolled at IPFW are returning students and will need to follow the steps below based on their non-enrollment status:

Re-entry: If you previously attended IPFW but have not registered for classes at IPFW for more than one year, you must submit an application and official transcripts from any colleges attended since your enrollment at IU or Purdue. No application fee is due. Re-entry or entry to desired degree program is not guaranteed.

Re-admission: If you have been dismissed from IPFW or any other campus of Indiana University or Purdue University, you are prohibited from enrolling at IPFW or any other campus of the affiliated University (Indiana University or Purdue University) until at least one fall or spring semester has passed. To be readmitted to IPFW you must prove academic success. This can be accomplished one of two ways:

  1. Attend IPFW as a non-degree student and earn at least six credit hours with a minimum grade point average of 2.0 for the six credit hours. Of note, an IPFW non-degree student is not eligible for for financial aid consideration.
  2. Attend a regionally accredited post-secondary institution, such as Ivy Tech Community College, and earn at least six credit hours with a minimum grade point average of 2.0 for six credit hours.

Please note: Readmission to the university is not automatic and does not guarantee that you will regain acceptance to your most current department or major.
