Admissions Process

Simply, apply and meet the admission requirements of Ball State University to become a business administration major.

Application Deadlines

To be considered for admission to the semester you prefer, your application and all supporting materials, such as other college or university transcripts, should be to us by the following dates:

  • Fall semester: August 1
  • Spring semester: December 1

Please plan for at least 3-4 weeks for staff from your previous schools to send official transcripts to Ball State. We will review your application as soon as we receive all your application materials.

GPA Requirements as You Progress

You will need to have a grade of C or higher in each of the following 3-credit-hour courses -- that you take early within your program -- to continue or advance in the major:

  • ACC 201 Principles of Accounting I
  • ECON 201 Elementary Microeconomics
  • ISOM 125 Micro Apps for Business
  • MATH 111 Pre-Calculus Algebra
  • MATH 132 Brief Calculus

You may already have some of these hours in transfer credits. If you have questions about admission requirements or transfer credits, contact Business Administration Advisor Christy Bibbs.
