Ready to apply? We practice rolling admission, which means we’ll review your application once we receive all required application materials. Review the following steps to submit a complete transfer application to Ball State.



Step 1: Review Admission Criteria

We base admission decisions on your academic performance at all previous institutions, including maintain a grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0, among other requirements.

Review Admission Criteria



Step 2: Apply for Admission

Complete the online application for undergraduate admission. An application and all required application materials must be received two weeks prior to the start of classes for a given term in order to be considered for admission to Ball State. Some program areas require additional information or materials. Find out if yours is one of them.

Step 3: Send Us Your Transcripts

A complete application requires official transcripts from all postsecondary institutions you attended (colleges, universities, or vocational schools) as well as an official high school transcript or GED/TASC score report (unless you earned an associate degree from an accredited college or university). We accept transcripts electronically or mailed directly to the Office of Admissions.

Step 4: Tell Us about Yourself

Optional – Submit a one-page applicant statement, resume, or recommendation. If you’re missing required course work, fall below admission criteria, or had a poor college semester, this step may be for you. Upload supporting materials to the online application or send to us directly.
