Non-School of Communication Ohio State Students

Are you a current Ohio State student thinking of switching your major to communication or journalism?

Students are required to attend a Major Information Session before scheduling an individual advising appointment with a School of Communication advisor. Students can declare pre-communication or pre-journalism at the session.

See Declaring the Pre-Major for upcoming Major Information Session dates and times.


Prospective High School or Transfer Students

Please email advisor Lisa Jerele at jerele.2@osu.edu to request additional information and to schedule an advising appointment. We recommend arranging your visit at least 2-3 weeks in advance as appointments fill quickly. Appointments are required. In addition, we encourage prospective students to arrange an Admissions Overview and Tour to learn about Ohio State's application and admissions requirements.
