  4. After choosing a program, meet with your COMM Advisor to select your courses**.
  5. Apply to the program you have chosen. It is recommended that you choose only one program, since you will be charged a non-refundable fee of $80.00 per opened application.
* Start planning at least one full semester in advance before the intended semester
** Your major advisor can approve courses for your major and/or general education. If you plan to take any courses for your minor or a second major, you'll need to get approval for those courses from the advisor for that program.
