Dear Students,

2016-2017 IPFW Student Handbook 

Welcome to Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne! Whether you are a student joining our campus community for the first time or a student continuing your studies with us, IPFW offers you the opportunity to pursue your goals in an environment that provides both challenge and support, to engage actively in the academic and social life of campus, and to benefit from and contribute to the greater Fort Wayne community.

There is no one at IPFW more responsible for your experience here than you. How does one get the most out of his or her experience?

If there is something the staff or faculty can do to help make your experience at IPFW better, please do not hesitate to let us know. We are committed to helping you achieve your goals and to be healthy and have fun in the process.

The IPFW Student Handbook (PDF) is intended to inform you of the many services, programs, and activities available to you at IPFW and to help you manage your time in ways that allow you to take full advantage of all that IPFW has to offer. It also contains IPFW policies and your rights and responsibilities as a student. Please note that the academic calendar, athletic events, and other programs that were scheduled at the time of publication are listed in the planner. Please check the bulletin boards, The Communicator, and campus fliers on a weekly basis for a complete schedule of campus activities.

Best wishes for a wonderful year at IPFW. Go Dons!
