Admit to Major

Admittance to The Edward R Edward R. Murrow College of Communication opens the door for upper-division courses in each of the three communication degrees: Strategic Communication, Journalism and Media Production, and Communication and Society.

 

Admit to Major

Admittance:

Students are admitted directly into their desired major in the College of Communication upon admission and enrollment at WSU.

To remain admitted to any major in the College of Communication, a student must complete all required courses and remain in good academic standing.

1COM 300 must be completed with a “C” or better, and only two attempts are allowed and a “W” is counted as an attempt in this course. With an appeal to the department chair, a student may request to take COM 300 for a 3rd attempt during a summer session.

All pre-requisites must be met in order to move through the Murrow curriculum. If a student fails to complete the required curriculum, they will not be able to remain admitted to the Murrow College. If a student is failing to complete academic requirements in a reasonable timeline, an advisor will work with the student to identify another academic path.

Students must remain in good academic standing in order to graduate with a degree from the Murrow College.

Transfer Students:

After consulting a Murrow academic advisor, a student transferring with junior status (60 + credits), with a 3.0 + transfer GPA, and has completed COM 101 or COM 105, will be allowed to take COM 300 in their 1st semester at WSU with all remaining 100-level required courses.
