Student Success and Transitions

Welcome Admitted Transfer Mastodons!

We are excited to welcome you to IPFW! Review the next steps as you transition to IPFW:

Set up your my.ipfw.edu account

Setting up your my.ipfw.edu account will give you access to your student email, financial aid information, Blackboard, myBLUEprint, and more! Click here to get started and select the "Get me started" button in the first time user box.

Apply for Financial Aid

Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the IPFW Scholarship Application as early as October 1st for 2017-2018 school year. Transferring between fall and spring semesters? Amend your FAFSA and have it sent to IPFW. The deadline for FAFSA and the IPFW Scholarship application is March 10th for the 2017-2018 school year. You may still submit for FAFSA after March 10th to see if you are eligible for Federal Aid.

Submit final transcripts

If you are admitted to IPFW while enrolled at another college or university, you must submit your final official transcripts to IPFW's Office of Admissions once you receive your final grades.

Contact your academic advisor for an advising appointment

Your advisor's contact information can be found under the enrollment tab of your my.ipfw.edu account. Click on their name for their contact information. Registering for courses on your own can lead to a variety of problems, including retaking courses you already had credit for or registering for the incorrect classes for your degree program. It is highly recommended that you contact and meet with your academic advisor to register for classes.

Prepare for your advising appointment

Your academic advisor will use myBLUEprint to track your progress towards completing your degree. You also have access to myBLUEprint, under the enrollment tab of your my.ipfw.edu account. Your academic advisor may make exceptions for your transfer credit to count towards your degree requirements, so it is important that you meet with your advisor prior to registering for courses to ensure that you do not retake a course you may have received credit for.
