If you were previously enrolled at Ball State but have not taken classes for more than a year—or if you received a "Re-Admit" error when attempting to register for classes—you need to select the “Re-enroll (previous Ball State graduate students only)” option under “Academic Intent” in your application.

- a first-time applicant to a Ball State graduate program;
- applying for a new or different program or certificate than one in which you are already enrolled; OR
- previously applied for a program but never attended any classes.
1. Review admission requirements and prepare materials.
You must have earned a minimum of a 2.75 GPA from the undergraduate degree-granting institution.
Our program requires you to take the GRE. Ball State's Institution Code is 1051. GRE scores are only valid for five years from their date of administration.
- curriculum vita — This summarizes all of your educational and work experiences. It should be complete but brief.
- two letters of recommendation — More than two letters can be sent, but they should come from individuals who can judge your potential as a graduate student.
- statement of purpose — This should be a writing sample that highlights your reason(s) for pursuing this degree and any experience(s) that have helped prepare you for this program.
2. Prepare your transcripts.
Ball State must receive transcripts for all applicants. Please review our instructions before you apply. (You do not need to submit Ball State transcripts in order to apply.)
Complete our online application.
Applications are $60 per program.
