Discounted and Free Software

Ball State offers popular software programs for PC and Mac users at costs well below retail, and even for free in some cases.

As an online and distance education student, you will want to check with your instructors to see what software you need.

Free Antivirus Software
All students need some kind of antivirus protection since they will likely be sharing files with instructors and classmates. If you do not already have security protection for your computer and are an enrolled Ball State student using a PC or Macs, you can download free antivirus software. An active Ball State username and password are required.

Software Available at a Discount
Ball State's Technology Store offers students deep discounts for popular software and computers. These items can be ordered and shipped to you.
