Graduate Admissions

Degree Seeking Students

Admission to an IPFW graduate program requires the following:

  • A completed application and graduate data sheet
  • An official transcript reflecting 3.0 or better out of a 4.0 Grade Point Average
  • Three professional letters of reference
  • A current resume
  • A statement of professional goals
  • Any related licenses or certificates
  • A non-refundable application fee of $55, payable to IPFW, is required of all applicants who have not previously attended an Indiana University graduate school. Be sure to forward your check or money order, along with the completed application fee form, to the Bursar's Office at IPFW.

Application forms may be printed from the links above or a paper application may be requested by calling the department secretary at (260) 481-6861. Please note the university deadline for applications. If you have missed the university deadline, please still contact the director of the program.

Non-Degree Seeking Students

You are considered an applicant for non-degree (temporary) admission if you

  • have earned a baccalaureate or advanced degree, and
  • do not intend to pursue another degree and are seeking only personal or professional enrichment.

You must be prepared to demonstrate that you have the necessary preparation for any course(s) in which you wish to enroll and may be required to obtain approval from the course instructors.

You may later seek regular admission and request that courses you completed while in non-degree admission status be considered for application toward a degree. The applicability of these courses will be determined by the school, division, or department that offers the program you are seeking, and typically no more than 12 credits will be considered.
