There are a few ways to learn how your credits will transfer to Ball State.

Option one: Apply for admission online. If admitted, your acceptance packet will include an advanced standing report showing how your courses will transfer to Ball State.

Option two: Register for one of our Transfer Visit Day events and submit your unofficial transcript at least 14 days in advance to If you have fewer than 30 credit hours, we will arrange for you to meet with a freshman academic advisor. If you have 30 or more credit hours, we will arrange for you to meet with a faculty academic advisor from your department. In these meetings, you will discuss your credit transferability.

Option three: Indiana students can also visit to determine Core Transfer Library equivalencies.

First, you must be admitted and confirm your enrollment. You will be invited to attend Orientation and will meet with an academic advisor to schedule your classes at that time.

You can view the curriculum requirements for your major and our core curriculum using the course catalog.

We sure do. We host Transfer Visit Days and campus visits throughout the year. See what's available and register today.

You are required to live on campus unless you have earned more than 24 transferable credit hours, are age 21 or older, married, have children, or if your residence is within a 60-mile radius of campus. If you choose to live on campus, consider one of our Living Learning Communities, where peers pursuing the same area of study or interest can interact outside the classroom.

Once you confirm your enrollment, Housing and Residence Life will send you information about the online housing application. Please contact Housing and Residence Life at 765-285-8000 with any questions.
