Transfer Students

Transfer students from 2-year or other 4-year schools are welcomed to the Department of Journalism and Strategic Media. Incoming students should meet with Dr. Sandra Utt, the assistant chair of the department, to determine what journalism/mass communication courses from their schools will transfer and how those classes will count toward their University of Memphis degree.

Transfer students should remember that all of their transfer hours will count toward their required 120 hours, but their transfer grades will not be counted toward their final GPA. Additionally, transfer students must remember that prerequisites and requirements vary from university to university and additional classes may be required.
