All undergraduate admissions (freshmen and transfer) are handled by the SDSU Admissions Office. The School of Journalism & Media Studies plays no role in the undergraduate admissions process. Admission to SDSU does not constitute automatic admission to a major in the School of Journalism & Media Studies (see pre-major requirements). For information on undergraduate admissions, visit Undergraduate Admissions.

Graduate admissions involve a two-part process handled by both SDSU and by the School of Journalism & Media Studies. First, all applicants must apply to SDSU through Cal State Apply online. Second, all applicants must submit the JMS-specific online application, which requires supplementary materials. For information on graduate admissions, visit Graduate Admissions or please refer to the Graduate Program Applicant Guide.
