Dual Credit

Now offering 153 credit hours in 40 courses!

Certain Indiana Academy courses are eligible for Dual Credit with Ball State University. Students are responsible for the enrollment fee (one time cost of $50) and tuition (varies per course) and will receive a college transcript for courses that are successfully completed. Tuition fees for dual credit courses are lower than regular college tuition rates for the same course. The college transcript should allow the transfer of credits to other colleges within Indiana. Check for course acceptance when transferring credits to out of state colleges. Contact Dr. Jeff Smith at or 765.285.4136 if you have questions or need additional information.
