Indiana Part-Time Grant
If you are an Indiana resident attending part-time at Ball State, you may be eligible for this grant that covers the cost of tuition and fees. Funding is provided by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education (CHE).
You may receive the award for the equivalent of four academic years. Additionally, the awards must be used within eight years after the date you first apply and become eligible for the award.

Students who plan to be a part-time student during the 2015-16 academic year and wish to be considered for the grant must complete an additional application. You can complete this application one of two ways:
- The application is available online at the end of the student's 2015-16 FAFSA submission. This feature is only available once on the student's confirmation page after submitting the FAFSA.
- If you did not complete the Part-Time Grant application directly from the 2015-16 FAFSA, you can link directly to the application once the state has received the student's FAFSA data from the federal processor. It can take 5 to 7 days for the federal processor to provide FAFSA data to the state. You can access the state's Part-Time Grant application at www.in.gov/sfa/2362.htm.
The Part-Time Grant application and the FAFSA must be completed by July 1, 2015. Corrections to the FAFSA must be made by August 1, 2015.
Award amounts vary based on funding levels each year. State program guidelines require that you maintain adequate enrollment during the first four weeks of each semester, or the award will be canceled.
Students who initially enroll in a CHE eligible institution for academic year 2015-16 or later must maintain satisfactory academic progress and earn 18 credit hours each academic year in order to be considered for renewal.
Appeals should be submitted to CHE for consideration.
