Your journey toward a degree is under way; let Ball State help you reach the finish line. According to The Princeton Review, we’re one of the “best value colleges” in the nation. But if you ask our more than 20,000 students, they’ll say we’re the perfect fit. Why? Because our learning style is personal and immersive, no matter which one of our approximately 190 majors you declare. Your professors and fellow students will get to know you and your future goals as you work together in a creative and collaborative learning environment. And when it’s all said and done, you’ll walk away with the experience and confidence you need to enter the professional world.

Ready to Get Started?

We'll consider you for admission if you’ve earned a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale for all transferable course work attempted. Courses from remedial programs, vocational and technical schools, and colleges and universities that are not regionally accredited* cannot be transferred.

*Accrediting associations include:

  • Middle States Association
  • Higher Learning Commission
  • New England Association
  • Northwest Association
  • Southern Association
  • Western Association

Admission decisions will be based upon your academic records at all educational institutions you’ve attended. You must be in good academic standing and eligible to return immediately to the last institution you attended.

If you apply for transfer admission to Ball State while you’re enrolled at another college or university, you may be considered for admission on the basis of your current college or university cumulative GPA. If you’re admitted to Ball State while enrolled at another college or university (referred to as “admit with conditions”), your cumulative GPA must remain above 2.0. Admission granted under such circumstances may be withdrawn if your cumulative GPA falls below 2.0.
