Your first step in taking program courses is to apply and meet the admission requirements of the Ball State Graduate School.

In addition, you must have a current elementary, middle school, or special education teaching license and at least one year of elementary teaching experience. If you are currently enrolled in the Graduate School, you’ll need to apply for admission to the program before you complete 6 credits within the certificate.
