Step 1

1. You must be accepted into the Ball State University Graduate School.

Applying to the Graduate School

  • Complete a Graduate School online application
  • Send official transcripts from any institution other than Ball State where you have taken college-level course work. The minimum GPA for regular admission is 2.75. 

You'll be notified in writing when you have been accepted, and the Graduate School will then forward your application and admission letter to the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management.

2. Once you've been accepted, you will need to apply to the NREM department.

Note: International students must apply through the Rinker Center for International Programs.

How Long Does it Take?

It depends upon the time of year, but the Graduate School typically processes applications within two weeks of receiving all required information.
