How to Use Slate.org
To serve you and your students the best we can, we have begun using a tool called Slate.org. This powerful and free tool allows us to communicate more effectively with our applicants' high schools in a variety of ways.
Transfer Flight Paths
Our Transfer Flight Paths have been designed for Indiana residents to pursue their academic goals at Ball State by starting at a community college. These pathways are designed for students to demonstrate their ability to do college coursework while attempting to keep them on pace for completing their academic goals. Students at Ivy Tech Community College and Vincennes have several options for transferring to Ball State using one of our Transfer Flight Paths. Learn more.
