Costs and Financial Aid

At Ball State, we strive to make sure you get the best education possible—and make it as affordable as possible. The Princeton Review has recognized Ball State as one of the best values among the most academically challenging institutions in the nation.

Before you can determine the type of financial aid you might be able to use to fund your graduate studies, you first need to understand what your graduate education will cost.

Our tuition costs vary depending on the number of credit hours you are taking and whether you are an Indiana resident or nonresident. Certain fees—such as a technology fee and health services fee—also apply. If you plan to work as a graduate assistant, you can save on tuition costs, but you’ll still need to pay dedicated fees.

Funding options also include grants, fellowships, loans, scholarships, and other forms of assistance.
