Ball State must receive transcripts from all colleges and universities you attended (this includes dual credit courses earned while in high school) in order for you to be admitted to your program of interest.
You may provide unofficial or official transcripts when you apply.
- unofficial transcripts - Unofficial transcripts are copies of transcripts that you directly upload to your applicant status portal. (After your program recommends you for admission, you will need to provide your official transcripts to complete the admission process.)
- official transcripts - Official transcripts are transcripts that are sent directly (electronically, by mail, or received in an official sealed envelope) to Ball State University’s Graduate Admissions Office from the issuing institution. You may order official transcripts to include with your application, rather than wait until after you're recommended for admission to provide them. This means any former or current institutions you attended will need to submit the official transcripts to Ball State.
You do not need to submit Ball State transcripts.
