Currently Accepting . . .
Ball State is accepting online students from all states. However, in a few states because of licensing issues we are not allowed to admit nursing, education, or ABA students.
In particular, if you are from North Carolina or Kentucky, we recommend you review those states' statuses listed on our state authoriization map very carefully. We can accept students in only some academic programs from these states.
You may also check with the advisor for the program in which you are interested.
Review our state authorization map for the latest information, as these situations can change.
The U.S. Department of Education requires that any U.S. college or university offering online or distance programs to citizens in a state where it is not physically located to meet those other states' requirements to legally offer postsecondary, online education to their residents.
The regulations for authorization vary from state to state.
Ball State University, located in Indiana, is currently pursuing authorization from all states, plus the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.
All online, out-of-state students need to check this map to determine if their states currently allow them to enroll at Ball State. Please check regularly for updates.
If you are a U.S. citizen, do not reside in Indiana, and are thinking about enrolling in a Ball State online program, we urge you to review the regulations regarding authorization of your specific state.
If you become a Ball State student, you are responsible for checking program authorization and
licensure requirements in your state of residence. Rules and regulations vary by state. If you move to a new state, you are responsible for ensuring our program
is approved in the new state.
If the field you are studying requires professional licensure, make sure you are aware of license requirements within
the state in which you wish to work.
If you have any questions or issues related to Ball State and state authorization, we encourage you to and review our complaint resolution policy and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make sure the person who can best help you will contact you within one business day.
Contact our interim coordinator for state authorizations, Laurel Garrett.
