Ball State University has seven academic colleges. Undergraduate students sit with
the college of their major and cross the stage as they are individually
recognized. Doctoral and master's students sit with the Graduate School and cross the stage as they are individually recognized.
If you are eligible to participate in the ceremony, you must indicate your participation choice (yes or no) on your graduation application. If you change your plans to participate, please email us at email@example.com.
Ceremony participants must also wear appropriate regalia.
You may buy photos of the ceremony from Grad Images.
Doctoral diplomas are presented at the ceremony. All other students will receive diplomas by mail four to eight weeks after commencement, regardless of whether you participate in the ceremony.
Please remember that graduation is not automatic. To graduate, every student must apply online, even if you don't plan to attend a ceremony. Learn more.
