Ball State offers reduced tuition to federal employees
Ball State University Teachers College has joined an alliance that will allow federal government employees to earn online graduate-level degrees and certificates at a reduced cost. The Federal Academic Alliance is a joint initiative to address critical skills gaps among government employees in mission-critical occupations.
The alliance offers Ball State’s in-state tuition rates for all out-of-state residents who qualify under the Federal Academic Alliance agreement.
Ball State says although most of their courses emphasize careers in education, there are several degrees that non-educators could find beneficial, including curriculum development, organizational leadership and data analysis.
“Teachers College is excited to be able to offer this opportunity for Federal Government employees and their families,” said Anand Marri, dean of Teachers College. “We know how great an impact accessible and flexible education can make and the benefits of becoming a life-long learner.”
The Ball State courses are asynchronous, providing flexibility to full-time working professionals who are working on the courses.
In addition to Ball State, Purdue University and Purdue Global are among the 32 institutions in the alliance.
Ball State Teachers College is also extending this scholarship to federal government retirees.
