Students with immigration statuses which permit the establishment of a domicile in the United States may be eligible to pay resident fees provided the individuals have otherwise satisfied the conditions for resident student status. Current eligible classifications are: A-1, A-2, A-3, E-1, E-2, E-3, G-1, G-2, G-3, G-4, H-1B, H-4, I, L-1, L-2, O-1, O-3, V-1, V-2, and V-3. Continuing eligibility to remain classified as a resident student for fee-paying purpose depends upon the continued maintenance of eligible immigration status. Students with eligible classifications who feel they may be eligible for a change in status should contact the Office of the Registrar for more information.
DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) Students:
Ball State does allow for DACA students living in Indiana the ability to pay in-state tuition. We will not update a student that has applied as DACA until we receive their DACA ID card. Once the students ID card is received, admissions will manually update residency to in-state.
