Policies and Regulations

Please see the Undergraduate Academic Policies. Students are responsible for complying with all University-wide academic policies as well as those of the School of Communication and Theater that appear below.

(Note: The University is reviewing all school and college, major, and GPA requirements above 2.0.  Please refer to the electronic Bulletin for up-to-date information.)

Academic Standing

Students must maintain a 2.00 cumulative GPA in their major or track and make satisfactory progress toward their SCT degrees to remain in good academic standing. Students who are not in good academic standing at the end of a semester will be warned for the following semester. Students who are not in good academic standing at the completion of that following semester may be dropped from the SCT programs.

Credits Not Applied Toward the Degree

Credits earned in the following courses are not applied toward a degree in the School of Communications and Theater: all courses in Military Science, Topical Studies, RCC, ELECT, Composition 0040, and Mathematics 0015. 

Dean's List

Each semester, undergraduate students who achieve a grade point average of 3.5 or above for the semester with 12 or more credits toward the degree and with no grades of I or NR are selected for the Dean's List. Letters of congratulation are sent to each of these students.

English 0040 Requirement

Students required to take English 0040 must complete that requirement before enrolling in Journalism 0150 and before enrolling in Strategic and Organizational Communication courses numbered 0050 or above.


Students returning to campus after an absence of three or more years must use the Undergraduate Bulletin in effect at the time of readmission or any subsequent Undergraduate Bulletin. Credits more than ten years old may not be applied toward a degree in the School.

Transfer Students

Refer to Undergraduate Admissions for general information on transferring courses to Temple. In addition to these criteria, each department in the School of Communications and Theater will evaluate any credit to be transferred into a major. This evaluation generally is done at the first meeting with a faculty adviser during the first semester. The maximum number of credits allowed to transfer in the major are: 20 hours in Broadcasting, Telecommunications, and Mass Media; 21 hours in the Communications interdepartmental degree; 21 hours in Film and Media Arts; 12 hours in Strategic and Organizational Communication; and 20 hours in Theater. The Department of Journalism, Public Relations and Advertising allows only 12 hours of journalism-related courses to be transferred to the major. Transfers students should meet with a Journalism faculty advisor to determine equivalent credit for Journalism or Mass Communication courses they wish to transfer.
