Change Majors within SoC

To transfer from one department of the School of Communication to another, make an appointment with an advisor in the major you wish to enter. Once the advisor has gone over the requirements for the new major and your progress toward degree, he or she will then sign off on your interdepartmental transfer form. You should also let your old major advisor know you are transferring out of that program. There is a cap of 100 students per class in theatre, so you may be added to a waitlist for entry into that major. For this reason, students are not guaranteed they will be able to transfer into theatre. Students may not transfer into Radio/Television/Film after the first day of the fall quarter of their third year at Northwestern.

            Important Deadlines:

            1st day of quarter                First day to initiate an SoC interdepartmental transfer

            5th Wednesday of quarter    Last day to complete an SoC interdepartmental transfer
