The Office of Teacher Education Services serves as a liaison between Ball State students obtaining an educational license and the Office of Educator Licensing and Development (OELD), the state licensing agency in Indiana. Under the Licensure Framework of OELD, the teaching license will reflect the standards for which the candidate has demonstrated competency through the completion of a degree program. The license will state the content area(s) and the grade coverage in which the candidate is licensed to teach.
Licensing provides the following services to students, former students, alumni, and the education community:
Individuals who already have an undergraduate degree and are applying to the University to pursue license renewals, license additions, or new licensing programs, should apply for admission to the Graduate School, Ball State University. The application process can be completed online. (Application fee payment by use of a debit card instead of credit card takes 4-7 days to clear.) This process must be completed before a student will be cleared to register for classes. Information regarding online and off campus course offerings are coordinated through The Division of Online and Distance Education.
Students from Other States
If you live in a state other than Indiana, this information regarding state regulatory authorizations for distance programs might impact whether you can take courses from Ball State.
