Current UT Austin students interested in transferring to the College of Communication may submit an internal transfer application, which is open every February (for summer/fall admission) and September (for spring admission). Visit the internal transfer website for full details of the application and the dates of our internal transfer information sessions. To apply, students submit an online request form and upload a resume into the application. Students are notified of the committee's decision in late May/early June (for summer/fall admission) or early January (for spring admission). Students must attend an information session before they can make an advising appointment with the Internal Transfer Advisor.
You must have an overall UT GPA of at least 2.25 and a Communication GPA of at least 2.0 in order to be considered for transfer into the College. Priority is given to applicants who have successfully completed some RTF coursework, in particular, RTF 305. Students who wish to add RTF as a second major (or change their current second major) must have 30 hours in-residence and minimum UT and communication GPAs of 2.75.
Prospective University of Texas at Austin students should visit to learn about the application process and how to declare a major.
