**Important Course Registration Information**:

Declaring the Communication major does not guarantee registration in Communication courses.

Additionally, courses are subject to prerequisite requirements.  Course registration information will be discussed in more detail during the major change session. Please note, all prerequisites for Communication courses are waived during the summer and winter terms.

Attention: The Communication Department is not responsible for any fees associated with your current program of study. If you need to change your major immediately, please email a Communication advisor and request that your major be changed to “No Major Selected in Social and Behavioral Sciences” while you are in the process of changing your major to “Communication”.
