Dual Credit

Now offering over 150 credit hours in almost 40 courses!

Certain Indiana Academy courses are eligible for Dual Credit with Ball State University. Students are responsible for the tuition (varies per course) and may 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. Joel Olufowote at or 765-285-4136 if you have questions or need additional information.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dual Credit

BSU Dual Credit Program Student/Parent Handbook (Rev. Aug. 2022)

Important items to keep in mind:

  1. Actual courses available for dual credit are subject to change. Check with the Guidance Office for the most current list of courses.
  2. Fall semester enrollment will take place about 2 weeks after the beginning of the semester and lasts approximately 5 days. Enrollment for spring dual credit courses will start in December and finish the opening week of classes in January. You must enroll during these times if you wish to receive dual credit. Ball State University does not allow late or retroactive enrollments.
  3. Dual credit courses indicated with an asterisk (*) are the second course in a two-semester sequence. Students must enroll in the fall in the first course of the sequence in order to qualify for dual credit in the spring semester. Students must enroll and pay another tuition fee for the second course in the sequence at the start of the Spring semester. Some courses may have perquisite requirements. Check with the Guidance Office for an updated and complete list of all prerequisites for dual credit classes.
  4. Courses labeled “enroll in spring only” are the fall and spring semesters of the Academy class. The two semesters together are equal to one semester of the BSU equivalent class. The dual credit grade is an average of the two semester grades of the Academy class.
  5. Enrollment for these courses is done in the enrollment period in December and early January.
