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:

  • the international undergraduate student application and admission process, including intial contact for students (F-1 international student status) and exchange students/scholars (J-1 exchange visitor status)
  • I-20 issuance for F-1 students
  • DS-2019 issuance for exchange students and visiting scholars
  • international student and scholar advising
  • recommend incoming students for scholarships, such as the Chancellor's Merit Award.
  • study abroad program advising, administration, and management
  • oversight of international cooperation agreements
  • H-1B processing for international faculty and staff
  • social and culture advising, and many other services
  • Please make sure to stay in contact with us at all times to seek services and counseling.


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.
