Undergraduate Admission

There are several limited-access programs in the Nicholson School of Communication and Media that require a separate application and course prerequisites in order to be accepted into the major. In other cases, only a change of major request is required. Refer to individual program pages for program-specific requirements.

Students seeking admission into limited-access programs are encouraged to meet with an advisor in the Nicholson Academic Student Services Center at least once per semester to ensure they remain on track to qualify for these programs.
