  • Office of International Education


On behalf of IPFW and the Fort Wayne community, we welcome you.

Our emphasis is on creating a welcoming environment that, in turn, builds trust and fosters personal and intellectual growth that you can take back to your home country. We promote cross-cultural awareness and seek to build mutual respect by providing a venue for cultural, educational, and social events for students, faculty, and the community-at-large.


The Office of International Education is responsible for:

  • international undergraduate student admissions
  • I-20 issuance for degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students
  • DS-2019 issuance for exchange students and visiting scholars
  • international student and scholar advising
  • study abroad program advising, administration, and management
  • oversight of international cooperation agreements
  • H-1B processing for international faculty and staff
  • social and cultural advising, and many other services


Our team is dedicated to support all international students and scholars at IPFW with a wide range of knowledge and experience in many areas to ease your transition to a new university and a new home in a new country. We are a home away from home for international students and scholars at IPFW.


We are delighted to announce that IPFW will be taking part in the Study World 2017 Exhibition in Taiwan in February 2017. We look forward to meeting students there!

Ask a student a question now!
