All new freshmen are required to attend SOAR. This day-long session is designed to provide general information about IPFW, as well as pertinent information regarding academic programs, college policies, and student life. During SOAR, you will meet with an academic advisor who will assist you with registering for classes. You will not be allowed to register for classes until you have attended SOAR.
We begin sending SOAR information to newly admitted freshmen in April.
Visit the SOAR website for more information.
Payment plans are available! Be aware of deadlines and pay on time to avoid any penalties. Fee payment deadlines are printed in the Schedule of Classes or are available at the Bursar's website. Fees may be paid by mail, by phone, by internet through OASIS, or in person.
You may get your textbooks and lab manuals from the IPFW Bookstore (Kettler Hall, lower level), or visit the online bookstore.
