What to do if you have forgotten your ID or other information
Please note that if you have ever previously been enrolled in or participated in a program at any IU campus and were given a 10-digit University ID number and username, you will use the same ID number and username to access your IU computing account (or use the steps above to set up your computing account if you have not already done so).
As an IU Fort Wayne student, you'll have the same access to campus facilities, housing, services, and activities as Purdue Fort Wayne students. In order to take advantage of those offerings, you must create a goPFW account. You will need to know your birthdate and your Purdue student ID number.
Please note: You cannot complete this step until you have accepted your admissions offer and received a Purdue student ID.
If you're planning to live on campus, apply for housing and include the $20 non-refundable application fee + $150 refundable security deposit with your application.
As a student on the Fort Wayne campus, you will have both an IU and Purdue student ID number. Since IU and Purdue share the same campus, you will use these numbers for various services.

The IU ID will be listed at the top as "ID" and the Purdue Fort Wayne ID will be listed under "other identification numbers."
