If you are or will be a graduate of an accredited high school or have earned a high school equivalency diploma* (TASC or GED), you may apply for admission to Ball State. All applications will be evaluated carefully on an individual basis, taking into account indicators of potential to succeed at Ball State.
Ball State practices rolling admission. This means your application will be reviewed and an admission decision made after all of your credentials are received. Our enrollment is limited; admission to a particular semester may depend on space available and the date of your application.
Students Age 23 or Older
Ball State is committed to offering access to higher education for qualified adults age 23 or older. (Note: If you have previous college experience, you will be considered a transfer student.)
If you are not a U.S. resident, please see our international admissions area for admission information and guidelines.
Ball State welcomes homeschooled students as applicants for admission. Homeschooled students are evaluated for admission to the university on the same basis as students from public and other private schools.
We welcome students who would like to transfer from another college or university. Check out our requirements for transfer students.
