How to Apply

The Apprentice is the entry level position in the Corps.  To be a part of the Digital Corps at this level, students need to exhibit a high degree of basic knowledge and enthusiasm for technology or media by submitting a resume and completing a vigorous selection process. 


The next two levels of the Digital Corps are Specialists and Masters, which are Undergraduate Fellows.

Specialists work on department projects for Emerging Technologies. To be promoted to the Specialist level, each student must be interviewed by the Emerging Technologies staff.  

Requirements for Specialist are:

  • 1 certification in a current application

The process is similar for promotion to the Master's level.  During the interview process, each student must provide a presentation to demonstrate the ability to communicate as well as to show an understanding of how applications are used in a project environment. 

Requirements for masters are:

  • 2 certifications (any two)

In order to keep their technical knowledge sharp and up-to-date, Digital Corps members keep their software certifications current and always strive to learn new ways to use emerging technologies.

Digital Corps Specialists and Masters contribute their creative skills and media software expertise to a variety of projects for both Ball State University and outside clients. 

Applications for the Digital Corps are available at Cardinal Career Link.
