Step 3: Prepare for your Flight Path meeting

  • Review our Transfer Admission Criteria and prepare your application materials to transfer.
  • Review our various degree programs to determine what you would like to study at Ball State.
  • Determine your desired time frame to transfer.

Step 4: Meet with your Transfer Advisor and develop a Flight Path

During your meeting with your Transfer Advisor, you will:

  • Review the information you have prepared (transfer admission criteria and choice of major) and discuss your intention to transfer (time frame and transfer institution).
  • Discuss options for your Flight Path, including already designed core curriculum or associate degree pathways with community colleges, reviewing our curriculum and courses available at your starting school of choice, and your goals.
  • Develop your Transfer Flight Path by creating a suggested course plan to successfully transfer to Ball State.
