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

The IPFW Office of International Education (OIE) serves as the initial contact for all students from abroad and remains a point of reference during your years on campus. 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
  • I-20 issuance for F-1 students
  • DS-201 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 culture advising, and many other services

We also recommend incoming students for scholarships, such as the Chancellor's Merit Award. 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 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 to the international students at IPFW.
