NACEP LogoBall State is among a select group of fewer than 100 institutions accredited by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships. The designation means that we have demonstrated that the courses we offer to high school students are the same quality as those offered on campus.

Ball State’s Dual Credit Program provides a convenient way for high school students to experience college courses. Our dual credit courses satisfy both high school and collegiate standards. You can graduate from high school prepared and confident.

Our courses emphasize college-level critical thinking and writing skills, exposing you to the rigors and challenges of the college curriculum. We focus on college preparation by assuring quality instruction and giving you an experience otherwise unattainable before entering college.

Take Courses at Your High School

These courses are taught on site at your high school by local teachers who are approved as adjunct instructors by Ball State. These courses are intensified to meet both your high school requirements and provide additional instruction to satisfy collegiate standards.

Take Online Courses

If your school doesn't offer dual credit courses that you need, you can take one of our online courses taught by Ball State professors.
