  • If you are a transfer student, a transcript from any college you’ve attended.
  • A professional resume highlighting internships and communications experience as well as unrelated volunteer, student organization or work experience.
  • A personal statement totaling no more than 750 words or roughly 3750-characters

    • Letters of recommendation may come from anyone except Journalism 201 TAs.

The online program will not allow incomplete applications to be submitted. The School of Journalism and Mass Communication requests that you submit all documents in PDF format. The school does not take responsibility for those files that are cannot be reviewed due to improper formatting. The school does not have computing resources for you to fill out your application in-house. Campus librarians are equipped to teach you how to save and scan documents in PDF format. You may also use campus library computer labs to submit your application.
