Program:  Titan to Mastodon Connection
Department:  Student Advising and Advocacy Center
School/College:  Unit of Affiliated Programs

The Titan to Mastodon Connection Program (T2M) is a collaborative initiative between Purdue University Fort Wayne and Ivy Tech Community College. It was created for high school admits, who do not meet minimum admission requirements, to provide advising, orientation, and on-going support in their transition to eventual full-time enrollment at Purdue Fort Wayne. T2M students will have an individually tailored academic plan with enrollment in courses concurrently at Ivy Tech Community College and Purdue Fort Wayne. Participation in T2M is by invitation only and all participants must sign a financial aid consortium agreement and program contract for every term they wish to be in the program.

T2M students will be degree-seeking at Ivy Tech, which will serve as their “home institution” for Financial Aid purposes, and will work with their T2M advisor to select an Associate’s degree program that aligns with their educational goals. Concurrently, students will be in non-degree seeking status at Purdue Fort Wayne, with the ultimate goal of fully transferring to PFW and earning a Bachelor’s degree. T2M students will have full access to resources, events and facilities at both campuses.

Students eligible for the T2M program can elect to not participate and be a part-time student at Purdue Fort Wayne. Students may take up to 11 credit hours a semester but should be aware that attending part-time may impact their financial aid. Part time students in this option will work with their academic advisor to determine if they are eligible for full time status after their first semester.

Program Delivery:

  • Students may take advantage of the wide variety of daytime, evening, weekend, hybrid, and online courses at Purdue Fort Wayne. See a T2M advisor for more information.

Student Responsibility

You are responsible for ensuring that you satisfy all graduation requirements specified for each selected program.  Thus, it is essential that you develop a thorough understanding of the required courses, academic policies, and procedures governing your academic career.  If you cannot complete all program requirements by your stated graduation date but fail to remove those from your plan of study, the Registrar’s Office in consultation with your academic advisor will remove unmet pursuits from your plan of study. Changing curricular records during the graduation term of application may affect state or federal financial aid awards. All requests for exceptions to specific requirements must be made in writing and may be granted only by written approval from the appropriate chair or dean.
