Urban Planning

Alumni and Friends


Are you a planning professional preparing to take the AICP exam in 2017? If so, you will be glad to know that Bruce Frankel's online, no-credit AICP Prep course will be live and available in January for the spring semester. Register here.

"I utilized several study resources and found that Dr. Frankel's prep material was by far the best of what's available," said Lisa Dunaway who passed the AICP exam after completing the course. "I paid a lot for another set of study materials and found it to be outdated and full of errors. Dr. Frankel's course is meticulously researched and covers what is actually on the AICP exam."

The cost for the course is $410, a bargain when you consider the expense of perhaps having to take the AICP exam a second time! Questions? Email us at planning@bsu.edu and we'll be glad to help.


We encourage alumni and friends of our department to keep in touch. Often times, we look to you for jobs or internship opportunities for our students. Feel free to contact us if you have opportunities, and we will share those with our students or alumni.

We hope that you will continue to support Ball State and our students. We would welcome your participation on a jury or as a guest speaker, or perhaps you are in a position to make a monetary gift.
