Degree Requirements

How do I know what is required for my major?

A student should consult with their academic advisor concerning requirements for their major. Requirements are also available in the Bulletin.

How do I know what class to take to meet General Education requirements?

A student should consult with their academic advisor each semester before enrolling to determine courses still needed to satisfy General Education requirements for their major. General Education requirements are also listed in the Bulletin.

How do I know which classes count where?

A student can obtain this information by running an unofficial degree evaluation in myBLUEprint or CAPP. myBLUEprint can be accessed via the Enrollment tab in myIPFW. On that page, you will see a myBLUEprint box with information and the log in link. Students who entered or re-entered IPFW before fall 2012 can access CAPP from the Enrollment tab by clicking on Old Unofficial Degree Evaluation link in the Registration Tools box. The unofficial degree evaluation matches completed and registered classes with the requirements for degree program and produces a report. This report shows how the classes taken apply to the degree requirements and what classes need to be completed in the future. Use this report with assistance from your academic advisor to make decisions about what classes to take.

How many hours do I need to earn my degree?

For completion of undergraduate plans of study of at least 60 credits, associate degrees may be conferred. For completion of undergraduate plans of study of at least 120 credits, bachelor's degrees may be conferred. These are minimum standards set by the university. Schools and divisions may impose stricter requirements so contact your academic advisor for specific requirements of your plan of study.

What are myBLUEprint and CAPP?

myBLUEprint and CAPP are IPFW’s online degree evaluation systems. These systems allows students to track their degree progress and academic standing, as well as the ability to explore other majors and their requirements. myBLUEprint can be accessed via the Enrollment tab in myIPFW. On that page, you will see a myBLUEprint box with information and the log in link. Students who entered or re-entered IPFW before fall 2012 can access CAPP from the Enrollment tab by clicking on Old Unofficial Degree Evaluation link in the Registration Tools box.

How do I substitute or waive a course requirement?

To request a waiver or substitution on a course requirement for your degree program, contact your academic advisor. Your advisor has the ability to waive course requirements and/or substitute courses you have taken for your graduation requirements, with administration approval. Such waivers/substitutions are sent to the appropriate person to be entered in the myBLUEprint or CAPP system, so they are viewable on your degree evaluation.

What do I do if I think my myBLUEprint or CAPP report is inaccurate?

If you feel any part of your unofficial degree evaluation in either system is inaccurate, discuss this with your academic advisor. It may be a simple matter of re-assigning or substituting a course to meet a particular requirement.

How will my transfer credits apply to my program or degree at IPFW?

The Admissions office determines how transfer courses are entered into the IPFW student information system. Contact your academic advisor to discuss how these transfer credits will apply to your program or degree. You can also run an unofficial degree evaluation in myBLUEprint or CAPP to get an unofficial report of how your transfer credits may apply to your program or degree.
