Tuition Costs and Financial Aid for Online and Distance Education Programs

  • Undergraduate tuition costs—for students working on bachelor's degrees, associate degrees, undergraduate certificates, or taking 100- to 400-level courses.
  • Graduate tuition costs—for students working on master's degrees, doctoral degrees, specialist degrees, graduate-level certificates, or taking 500-level or higher courses.

Financial Aid
Among the two most asked questions about getting your college degree are “What is it going to cost?" and “Can I afford it?” We strive to make education affordable. More than 75 percent of Ball State students, including many adult learners who continue to work full time, receive some form of financial aid.
