I transferred to GW, and a frequently asked question is whether I
made the right decision. My experiences in the Communication Department
always lead me to say yes. I think each graduate would agree that individual
attention from staff was a very important part of the Communication
Program. I don't think that would have been possible without the
small class sizes.
--Diana Rosenberg, Class of 1996
Students are accepted as a communication major through a selective application process that commences only after the student is admitted to the University. Students are encouraged to apply the first semester, or early in the second semester, of their sophomore year. Applications are not accepted from students with more than 75 credit hours. A student may apply no more than twice to the major. Minimum requirements for admission include a GPA of 3.3 and completion of, or enrollment in, Comm 25, 40 or 41. Achievement of the minimum GPA does not guarantee admission to the major, because the acceptance process is selective. Application forms and the Student Handbook for Communication Majors, which provides additional information about the major, including the application process, are available in the program office. Application forms become available at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters.
Most Communication students are enrolled with the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences (CCAS), and CCAS admission requirements can be found in the University Undergraduate Bulletin. Once accepted as a Communication major by the Communication Program, you will need to complete the declaration process by filing a declaration of major form with Columbian College.
