If your academic program of interest reviews your application and recommends you for acceptance to Ball State, you will then need to submit final official transcripts from any institution(s) where you earned a degree or certificate, or any institution(s) where you are currently enrolled.
Your applicant status portal will be updated at this time to list these requirements, but they must be submitted in an official capacity.
A copy of your official WES or ECE evaluation may be required and must be submitted directly from the issuing agency to Ball State University.
If you are enrolled at another institution at the time of your offer of admission, you will be required to submit a final official transcript indicating the title of the degrees earned and the date awarded upon completion. If you were not pursuing a degree, the final official transcript must show final grades for all coursework.
A registration hold will be placed on your record at the end of your first semester of enrollment if all final official transcripts have not been submitted.
How to Submit Transcripts
Official transcripts are transcripts that are sent directly to Ball State University’s Graduate Admissions Office from the issuing institution.
Transcripts are considered official if they are either:
- received by the admissions office in a sealed envelope from the issuing institution (college/university)
- sent via an electronic delivery service to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you choose to hand-deliver the transcript, you must not open/reseal the envelope.
You do not need to submit Ball State transcripts.
To submit an official transcript directly from your institution, please email us: email@example.com.
For electronic delivery services, such as Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, or eSCRIPT, select Ball State University from the list of recipients.
Send official transcripts to:
Ball State University
2000 W. University Ave.
Muncie, IN 47306
Request an evaluation to be sent to Ball State University from the issuing agency.
For Doctoral Applicants
If you have earned or have a pending a master's degree from a U.S. institution and a bachelor's degree from a non-U.S. institution, you will not need to submit a WES/ECE for your bachelor's degree. You may submit an unofficial transcript and an official translation of your bachelor’s degree to your applicant status portal.
