Step Three

Now that you’ve applied, take a big breath

Here are a couple things you can do while you’re waiting.

Approximately two weeks after we receive your application, you’ll get an email with your University ID number. You’ll use this ID number to create your IU computing account, which you’ll use to check the status of your application.

Please note that your IU computing account is different than the guest computing account you created when you applied online. The guest computing account was solely for the purpose of submitting your application online.

Setting up your IU computing account
  1. Search for and select “Create My First IU Account” in One.IU.
  2. Read the Guidelines for Appropriate Usage, which are rules and policies for IT account use at IU, and agree to these policies.
  3. Enroll in the Passphrase Self-Service Reset System. If you forget your passphrase, this tool will enable you to reset it yourself without having to visit a UITS Support Center walk-in location in person.
  4. You will want to save or record your account information in a secure place. You will need this information each time you log in to your IU computing account.
  5. Exit. It may take up to two hours before you can log in to some services.
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).

After you’ve created your IU computing account, you’ll be able to check the status of your application in One.IU. To check your status, go to Application Status in One.IU and select "Start." Log in using your IU username and passphrase (not your guest account information) to see the status of your application.

Submit your self-reported test scores

If you chose at the point of application to have your SAT or ACT test scores considered as part of your application, you can self-report your scores by completing the form below. 

Provide your self-reported test scores

Changing your test-optional selection

If you applied for Fall 2022 and haven't been able to take the SAT or ACT, we have updated our process to allow you to apply test-optional and if you wish, have your scores considered later. If you would like to pursue this option, please complete the form below.

PLEASE NOTE: Only update your test-optional selection if you have already submitted your application and need to change your selection regarding whether or not you want to have your test scores considered as a part of your admission review. If you don't want to change the selection you made on your application, do not complete this form.

Finally, if a decision was made, and IU Fort Wayne was not able to offer you admission, please do not submit this form. Instead, we recommend that you discuss your options with your admissions counselor.
