Transfer Student Check List for Prospective Communication Majors

While transferring to the U can be an exciting time, we understand it may also be confusing. To better understand the key components of transferring and becoming a Communication major, follow each of these steps to guide you through this process.

Step 1: Research What Coursework Will Transfer to the U

  • Transfers from Utah institutions: learn how your credits will transfer.
    • SLCC students: COMM 3060 Transfer Interest Group (TIG) is an optional Spring class for SLCC students interested in transferring to the U. To enroll simply attend the first class at SLCC. (The cost is $300, paid in class directly to the instructor.)
    • Students that are transferring from SLCC may also reference this Tranfer Information Sheet for additional information regarding the transfer process, including a list of articulated courses.  
  • All prospective transfer students with questions about the admission process and general education: contact the Transfer Center at University College, 801-581-8146.
  • All prospective transfer students with questions about the Communication major: Communication Academic Advising

Step 2: Apply for Admission

  • Submit online application
  • Pay the application fee
  • Have all college transcripts sent to the Admissions Office

Step 3: Complete Requirements for Registration

  • Attend Transfer Orientation 
    To be able to register for classes, all new students are required to attend an Orientation. Communication classes fill up quickly, so as soon as you are admitted to the University sign up for the first available Orientation. We encourage students to rearrange their schedules as necessary to attend the earliest date available.
  • Meet with an Academic Advisor 
    In addition to attending orientation, new transfer students must also meet with an Academic Advisor to be able to register for classes. You will be taken to see your advisor towards the end of orientation to fulfill the advising requirement in a group advising session. If you would like more individualized time to go over what courses and requirements you have remaining you can meet with an advisor prior to orientation. Please be aware that meeting with an advisor prior to orientation will not allow you to register earlier, you must also attend orientation to be cleared to register.
