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. Students must have attended an information session within the past year
before they will be allowed to apply. Information session attendance is also required before a student may
meet with the Internal Transfer Advisor.
To apply, students who are not already enrolled in the Moody College must submit an online application,
which includes a statement of purpose and a resume. 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 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 who want to add a second major (or
change their current second major) must have 30 hours in-residence and minimum UT and
Communication GPAs of 2.75. Priority is given to applicants who have already successfully
completed some Journalism coursework.
Students who are not already enrolled in the Moody College of Communication may only apply to the
Moody College twice, and these attempts must be completed within their first four long-semesters at UT.
However, no student may apply to the Moody College during his/her first semester enrolled at UT.
Prospective University of Texas at Austin students should visit to learn about the application process and how to declare a major.
