You need to apply to and meet the admission requirements of the Graduate School to be accepted into a graduate certificate program.

Because you will be taking courses with Ball State students who are pursuing their master's degrees, our certificate programs are an excellent opportunity to decide if you’re ready for a graduate degree.

Additionally, courses taken in the certificate program apply toward a master's degree or doctorate.

Next Steps

  • After you submit all your application materials to the Graduate School, you must notify the Department of Educational Psychology that you intend to take courses in one of the certificate or licensure programs. Please indicate which program you are interested in. Contact Linda Jones.
  • You will receive information about how to register for courses and paying for your courses.
