Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
Students with a 2.5 cumulative GPA or above will be automatically accepted into the Communication major or minor of their choice. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and will be reviewed weekly.
If your cumulative GPA is below a 2.5, you are still welcome to apply. You will be given the opportunity to submit a personal statement with your application asking you to reflect on this prompt:
In 250-300 words, explain the reason you would like to change your major/minor to Communication. Your personal statement should reflect formal writing and address the following topics:
• Why is this major/minor change desired?
• What career do you hope to pursue with your new major/minor?
• What will you bring to the major/minor as a student?
For students applying with a cumulative GPA below a 2.5, relevant coursework will also be taken into consideration before a decision is made (this includes coursework in COM, ENG, and other social sciences and humanities-based classes).
For all applicants, admission decisions will be communicated via campus email.
Students who are currently a declared major in the School of Communication and are looking to switch their major to another communication major need to complete the Internal Major Transfer Request Form. Contact your academic advisor for a copy of this form and to discuss the process further.
