Bachelor Admittance Requirement
365体育官方网址

365体育官方网址Digital Media (DGM) requires all students seeking a bachelor’s degree to meet or exceed certain criteria to be eligible for the program. All sophomores and transfer students will need to apply to the program by completing a Portfolio Review. Eligibility for the bachelor program requires that all students receive a B- (2.75) or above in DGM courses. Additionally, this grade threshold must be maintained throughout the bachelor degree program to remain in good standing. Upper-division courses (3000 or 4000 level) cannot be taken unless accepted into the bachelor program.

Note: All freshmen should declare their “anticipated” degree when they complete their entrance application. Students accepted into the bachelor program must re-submit a new application at which time they must declare their “official” degree.

Laptop Requirement

Laptops will be required for many of the upper-division courses. Each degree will have its own laptop specifications. Please see a Digital Media advisor for details.
