How do I apply to admit to an undergraduate major in the Murrow College?
Students are admitted directly into a Murrow major upon admission to WSU, and in consultation with a Murrow Academic Advisor. Students will remain admitted as long as they complete all required courses and remain in good academic standing.
What are the requirements for someone minoring in the College of Communication and when can I apply?
The course requirements are provided on the WSU Admissions website under Communication, Journalism and Media Production, and Strategic Communication. Students may apply for a Murrow minor after they have admitted to a major.
