Will my disability help or hurt me in getting admitted to Ball State?
Disability is a neutral factor in the admissions process at Ball State; it will neither help nor hurt you in getting admitted to Ball State. In fact, legally Ball State cannot inquire about disability prior to admission to the university.
However, if you think you may be "on the bubble," you (as the prospective student) may want to write a letter to be sent with the application which displays insight about the disability, describes coping skills learned, and indicates a willingness to use services at Ball State. The content of the letter should have an academic focus. Evidence of leadership experiences or other unique attributes may be included.
You are encouraged to plan a preadmission visit to Ball State to meet with representatives from the Offices of Admissions and Disability Services (DS). Contact the admissions office for more information about admissions requirements.
