Collegiate Connection

How to Apply

After meeting the admission requirements, you need to apply for admission to IPFW. All paperwork is available in your high school guidance office or on this website. You do not need to submit your ACT or SAT test scores and the application fee has been waived.

NOTE: Dual Credit students should not complete the Common Application for dual credit enrollment admission. Collegiate Connection students can apply online for summer only. Beginning Fall 2017 a new application will be used and it will be available starting mid-February.

New Students

  1. Talk to your high school guidance counselor to determine eligibility (consult the Admission Requirements).
  2. Obtain a Collegiate Connection course booklet or @Your High School flyer from your guidance counselor. 
  3. Apply online (summer only - fall application will be available mid-February). There is no application fee.

Returning Students

If you took an IPFW credit course in a previous semester, you do not have to complete a new application form. Contact the Collegiate Connection office at 260-481-5478 to discuss your course options. All registrations are processed in the Collegiate Connection office and students cannot register themselves for classes.

Note: Applications will be accepted through August 18, 2017 for the fall (first) semester. General education courses fill early, so course selection will become more limited the later you register.
