Undergraduate Admissions

Program Information

The Florida State University School of Communication offers four limited access undergraduate major programs (advertising, media/communication studies, media production, public relations). The competitive application process opens for those students who have completed minimum course requirements, have at least 52 hours of undergraduate coursework, and have an all-college GPA of 3.0 or higher. This application process occurs once each year in the spring semester. New majors are admitted only for the summer and fall semesters.

Transfer Students

Undergraduates not currently enrolled at FSU must apply to the University through the Undergraduate Admissions Application. This is separate from the School of Communication application. Please apply first to the University using the Undergraduate Admissions Application process. This will result in an identification number that will help you apply next to the School of Communication.
