The Most Comprehensive Honors Program in Indiana

In the Honors College, you can get the intimacy, attention, and challenge of a small liberal arts college in the midst of a larger university.

You'll need to complete a freshman seminar, Honors Core Curriculum, two Honors Colloquia, and a senior project or thesis, as well as maintain a 3.33 GPA or higher while at Ball State.


As an Honors student, you may be eligible for some of Ball State's most prestigious and generous scholarships plus exclusive scholarships awarded by the Honors College. University resources can also help you pursue prominent national and international scholarships and fellowships such as the Fulbright, Rhodes, and Udall programs.
