Military Students and Veterans
Ball State Online has earned G.I. Job's "Military Friendly" distinction every year since 2009. In addition, we hold four national rankings from U.S. News & World Report for "Best Online Programs for Veterans."
One of the key reasons Ball State is so friendly to active military, veterans, and their families is the excellent service provided by Veterans Affairs, which is housed within our Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
