College Transition Program

Information for High School Staff and Faculty

Ball State's College Transition Program bridges the gap between the college campus and your high school by exposing students to the rigors of a college curriculum, while they simultaneously earn college credit and credit for high school graduation. Your students and school will enjoy many benefits from this dual credit program.

There are three ways to participate:

Offering live classes at your high school
Courses are taught by your high school teachers who go through the certification process to be Ball State adjunct instructors. They will work in collaboration with Ball State professors in developing and implementing classes, plus modifying courses to meet your high school requirements and provide additional instruction to satisfy collegiate standards.

Allowing your students to take online classes
These course are offered by Ball State or the Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics, and Humanities, the state's only public residential high school for gifted and talented students.

Offering both on-site and online classes
You may have the resources for some on-site courses but would like to offer some additional online options

Our mission is to foster a partnership between Ball State and your high school. We provide a convenient and unique way for your students to experience college while still in their supportive high school environment. Qualified teachers from your school, certified by university academic departments, will teach these courses.

Many of the schools that participate in our program have a number of students who later attend Ball State. However, our credit transfers to many other schools and in and out of Indiana (see course transferability).
