Current UT students interested in transferring to the Moody 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 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. All students who are not already enrolled in the Moody College of Communication must also submit a statement of purpose.
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.
Students 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 an internal transfer into the College. Students are advised to be currently enrolled in (or have completed) J310 (or J 301F) before applying; however, this is NOT required to apply to transfer into Journalism.Students who wish to add Journalism 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.
Students who are not already enrolled in the Moody College of Communication may apply only twice to change their major and must submit the application within their first three long-semesters at UT.
Prospective University of Texas at Austin students should visit to learn about the application process and how to declare a major.
