Applying to Ball State

The procedures for applying depend on what type of student you are.

Transfer Student

If you have attended or earned credits from any college or university other than Ball State, even if it was many years ago, you will need to follow the transfer student admission process. This includes students who earned an associate degree.

Returning Ball State Student

If you have attended Ball State and earned credit, even if it was many years ago, or a Ball State associate degree, we have two easy options for you.

New College Student
