You must pay a $65 nonrefundable application fee with your application. If you apply online, you can pay the fee with a credit card at the time you submit your application.
You do not have to pay an application fee if:
- You are transferring to IU Fort Wayne from an IU campus.
- You are a veteran or currently serving in the US Armed Forces.
We will waive the application fee for students who demonstrate financial need. You can request a fee waiver by:
- Submitting an ACT, College Board, or NACAC fee waiver request form through your high school counselor.
- Having your high school counselor submit a request on school letterhead or from their official school email account.
If you apply online and request a fee waiver, the form must arrive by the date you designate on your application.
Periodically, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions may offer fee waivers to any freshman applicant during specified times, including at some IU Fort Wayne events. If offered, we will send instructions for processing the waiver via email to the address on the student’s unsubmitted application. If a student fails to read their email or follow the waiver instructions in those messages and pays the fee, they do not qualify for a fee refund.
If you have been admitted to IU Fort Wayne and are currently enrolled in either high school or college courses, you must arrange for a final transcript to be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Your high school transcript will be reviewed for satisfactory completion of entrance requirements, and any college transcripts will be reviewed for transfer credit evaluation.
If you were admitted prior to receiving your final grades and you later receive a D or F in a Core 40 course required to earn the Core 40 endorsement, you must notify undergraduate admissions to discuss enrollment options.
If you are a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, refugee, asylee, or undocumented immigrant who has completed secondary/and or postsecondary education outside the U.S., you will apply through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. U.S. citizens who attend American or international schools that hold U.S. accreditation or Department of Defense schools also apply through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Ethnicity information is gathered in compliance with the definitions and procedures included in the 1997 revision of the OMB Statistical Policy Directive No. 15 and the U.S. Department of Education Final Guidance on Maintaining, Collecting, and Reporting Racial and Ethnic Data to the Department of Education (Federal Register, Vol. 72, No. 202, 10/19/2008). This information will not be used in determining a student’s admissibility to IU Fort Wayne.
IU Fort Wayne prohibits discrimination based on arbitrary consideration of such characteristics as age, color, disability, ethnicity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.
Please note that Section 483 and 484 of the Higher Education Act (HEA) of 1965, as amended, provide the Department of Education the authority to ask students and their parents the questions on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and to collect the social security numbers of students and their parents. State and institutional student financial aid programs also may use the information provided on the FAFSA to determine if students are eligible to receive state and institutional aid.
Each student is assigned a 10-digit number that serves as their university I.D. That number will be included with students’ admission correspondence. Students’ social security numbers will not be used for this purpose.
