School Participation


Thank you for your interest in partnering with Purdue Fort Wayne Collegiate Connection to provide dual credit courses for your students in your high school! Partnering with Purdue Fort Wayne Collegiate Connection offers many benefits for students, teachers, and schools. 

Upon the decision to select dual credit courses to include into your curriculum, please contact Karen Van Gorder, Continuing Studies, Executive Director vangordk@pfw.edu or 260-481-6267, to initiate the Purdue Fort Wayne partnership agreement.

The teachers recommended, by the high schools, to teach dual credit courses will then begin the approval process by completing an application. Purdue Fort Wayne academic departments review the completed application and syllabus, and determine how close the applicant and course syllabus compare to the established Teacher Appointment Criteria.

Guidance counselors will work with Ann Brown, browna@pfw.edu , Collegiate Connection Student Services, or 260-481-5478, to administer and register students into the dual credit courses. It is strongly encouraged that students become admitted to Purdue Fort Wayne in the spring semester in order to register for the following fall semester.

Though Purdue Fort Wayne has a list of Purdue Fort Wayne Collegiate Connection courses, we encourage teachers to consider courses not already approved. The Purdue Fort Wayne Online Catalog provides course descriptions.
