How to Apply
Our application for Fall 2020 is now open! Students can learn more about our admission requirements and how to apply.
“Should Students Submit Test Scores?”
Our resources will help prepare you for common questions that students have about our test-optional application.
Working with an admitted student?
On our Admitted Student page, we will guide them through a step-by-step process to assist with the transition and show them what to expect in their first year on campus. We'll provide the resources and support they need to succeed from day one.
Effective March 14, Ball State will no longer offer campus visits or group visits for prospective students and groups due to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Summer campus visits will resume on August 31, 2020. Once they are posted, you can schedule a campus visit for this Fall online or by calling 800-482-4BSU (4278).
The Office of Admissions has been and will continue to communicate important updates regarding COVID-19 to high school counselors via email. On March 26, 2020, we sent updates to high school counselors in our email newsletter. Additional end of school year updates were sent on May 29, 2020 in another email newsletter.

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.
