This catalog is an informational guide to Ball State University. The information in this catalog is subject to change and should not be considered a contract. Catalog changes are possible for a number of reasons, including changes in certification or licensing standards for certain programs of study, or because of periodic review of academic programs, curricula, and course offerings by the university governance system. The university, through its academic advising system, will make every effort to help students adapt to changes in the catalog. However, the final responsibility for meeting academic and graduation requirements rests with each student. Students are encouraged to consult frequently with their faculty or academic advisors and to remain in regular contact with major departments in order to stay informed about possible changes in this catalog.
