The Bulletin provides information about the graduate programs, rules, courses, and faculty of Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW). Information about IPFW’s undergraduate programs appears in a separate publication, the IPFW Undergraduate Bulletin.
Information in the Bulletin will help students make important choices about their education, and it will familiarize them with the many important services IPFW provides. Since the Bulletin is a primary resource for making decisions about an IPFW education, it is important for students to refer to it throughout their tenure at the university.
Changes occur as needs arise. Changes in rules and procedures generally become effective at the time they are published. Also, new or changed academic program requirements may provide you with additional options. Because of this, you should review statements on IPFW services, policies, programs, and courses in each new edition of the Bulletin published while you are a student. When you enter a degree or certificate program, you will be required to fulfill the requirements published in the Bulletin (or its supplement or departmental regulation) current at the time of your most recent entry or re-entry into that program at IPFW. Only with the written acknowledgment of your academic advisor can you elect to fulfill the requirements in any subsequent Bulletin or supplement. Your academic advisor can assist you with this choice and ensure that such changes are officially recorded.
Note: The information in this Bulletin is subject to change without notice. Actions by accrediting agencies, federal and state governments, and the boards of trustees, administration, and faculty of the universities may produce such changes.
