Many students have credit from other colleges or universities when they start at Ball State.
If you've taken classes at another higher education institution, even if it was several years ago, you may be able to apply that credit to your Ball State degree. Just keep in mind that you must earn 30 of your last 40 credits from Ball State in order to earn a bachelor's degree from Ball State.
For more information about transfer credit and your situation, contact the academic advisor for your program.
