To complete any of the above programs, you must fulfill the requirements of IPFW (see Part 7), the School of Health Sciences, and the specific program. Where school or department regulations are stricter than IPFW regulations, the stricter regulations apply.

Academic Renewal Option

Many of the degree programs offered by the school provide the Academic Renewal Option for eligible students returning to IPFW after an absence of five or more years.

See your advisor before or during the first semester you return for additional details.

Special Academic Regulations for Students in Health Sciences

The school reserves the right to require withdrawal of any student whose presence is detrimental to patients, faculty, or clinic personnel. Clinical sites reserve the right to require withdrawal of any student whose presence is detrimental to patients or clinical personnel.

Applicants with criminal records are advised that many agencies perform criminal-record screens on students who may be placed with them. These agencies may not accept a student who has a criminal record. In addition, students who have a record of a sex crime against a child may not be placed into a clinical in which there is an actual or potential possibility that they will come into contact with children (IC 5-2-12-12). Students who cannot be placed into clinicals due to their criminal records may be unable to graduate from the program and are advised to pursue a nonclinical degree.

Technical Standards

Nonacademic criteria that all applicants/students are expected to meet vary by degree program. These criteria include the following five categories: (1) observation; (2) communication; (3) motor-function; (4) intellectual-conceptual, integrative and quantitative abilities; and (5) behavior and social attributes.
