Whether you are new to Ball State, transferring from another school, or returning to Ball State to finish a degree, you will need to review the admissions process for new or transfer students in an online program.

To be considered for admission to the semester you prefer, your application and all supporting materials, such as other college or university transcripts, should be to us by the following dates:

  • Fall semester: August 1
  • Spring semester: December 1
  • Summer semester: April 1

Please plan for at least 3-4 weeks for staff from your previous schools to send official transcripts to Ball State. We will review your application as soon as we receive all your application materials.

Students from Other States

Ball State is authorized to accept online students from all U.S. states. Certain conditions may apply depending on what regulations your state has and what degree you are seeking. Learn more about state authorization for non-Indiana students.

Although the courses within the major are completely online, you may take this major if you are a student on Ball State’s main campus. You will need to apply via the university’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions.


If you are already a current Ball State student, then meet with your academic advisor regarding a change of major. You may also contact ABA advisor Amy Chamberlain.

If you are planning to study online from your home country, you may apply for this degree program.


However, because of federal requirements, we cannot currently accept international students studying on the Ball State campus to this major.
