  • 2.9 cumulative CSU GPA on a minimum of 12.

  • JTC210 (Newswriting)
  • Must have JTC100 and JTC210 completed with grades of at least a B in one course and nothing less than a C in the other.


Tips for prospective transfer or second Bachelor’s students:  It is important to complete English Composition at your current institution and have a cumulative 2.5 GPA.  For direct admission, take both an introductory media and a newswriting class with minimum C grades. Students may not take additional Journalism courses until they are fully admitted into the major.
