You must submit the following documentation after you have been admitted to Ball State, and we suggest that you submit the materials as soon as possible.

Financial documents are valid for only six months from the date of issue. Applicants are allowed to have a maximum of three sponsors for their education.
Note: If your exchange consortium (for example, ISEP) is sponsoring your studies, then we do not require financial documentation.
