Congratulations on your admission to Ball State! Our orientation programs for new freshmen and transfer students will help you get involved in the university's vibrant campus life, access our abundant student resources, and succeed in our high-caliber academics.
If you are—or soon will be—a high school graduate and have never attended any college or university, we'll assist you in your transition from high school senior to college freshman. We also offer a special orientation program for nontraditional freshman students (age 23 or older).
If you have previously enrolled at another college or university, we'll assist you in your transition from school to school. We offer separate orientation programs for freshman transfers (29 or fewer transferable credits accepted) and advanced transfers (30 or more transferable credits accepted).
This week of fun-filled, informative activities in August will make your first days as a Ball State student fun. You'll get to make connections within our supportive campus community, meet other college students, and attend programs and convocations designed especially for new students. You can review a complete list of events and learn more about Welcome Week. Please Note: The Outdoor Pursuits Adventures-Water Sports will not be offered on Friday, August 16. It will be offered on Saturday, August 17, from 1-4 p.m. Registrations are due no later than noon on Friday, August 16.
