Get Started

Apply to enroll in Ball State's four-course sequence of ABA courses.

If you already have a bachelor’s degree and wish to enroll in our four-course sequence of ABA courses to prepare for the BCaBA exam, you will apply as a non-degree student.

Requirements for Non-Degree Admission

  • Submit official high school transcripts, a high school equivalency degree (GED or TASC), or college transcripts if you hold a bachelor’s or associate degree or have taken college courses at anytime.
  • If you have college coursework, you must be in good standing (a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale) and be eligible to return to the last college or university you attended.
  • If you have applied for and have been denied admission to Ball State, you must have earned 24 transferable credit hours and a 2.0 cumulative GPA or better from another institution to be admitted as a non-degree seeking student.

Please note: Financial aid is not available to non-degree students. You may not enroll in our program if you are currently enrolled in another institution.

Another Option if You have an Associate Degree or Some College Credits

If a four-year degree is what you seek, you might want to check out the bachelor's of general studies degree where you can have a minor in ABA or autism. This degree is also offered 100 percent online.
