Ball State University recognizes the need for people to pursue educational programs that may be related to their employment or that will otherwise enrich their lives. For these reasons, students with baccalaureate or advanced degrees who do not have further degree objectives but desire personal and professional enrichment may be admitted to graduate study as nondegree students.
To be admitted to graduate study as a nondegree student, a student must meet the following criteria.
You must have a bachelor’s degree or higher from an institution recognized by a regional accrediting association.
There is no minimum GPA for nondegree study.
Permission from the Department
You must receive permission from the department offering the course(s) you wish to take.
Please note: Nondegree students are typically not eligible for financial aid. Check with the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to verify eligibility requirements.
