College Transition Program

Ball State's Dual Credit Program

Get Started Today 

Through our College Transition Program you can earn college credit and at the same time fulfill your high school graduation requirements. Our dual credit program prepares you for the rigors of a college experience and lets you start exploring majors that interest you. 

There are two ways to participate:

  • Take Courses at Your Own High School 
    These courses are taught on site at your high school by local teachers who are approved as adjunct instructors by Ball State. These courses are modified to meet both your high school requirements and provide additional instruction to satisfy collegiate standards.

  • Take an Online Course
    If your school doesn't offer the dual credit courses that you need at your high school, you can always take one of our online courses taught by Ball State professors. 

Ball State is one of the recommended preferred providers of dual credit by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
