U-M students, transfer students and prospective Communication Studies majors are encouraged to schedule an appointment with a department advisor to discuss all Communication Studies prerequisite courses and the major in Communication Studies. General advising appointments are also available with faculty members to discuss the Communication Studies major, academic planning, career planning, and interest in graduate school. Students and prospective students are encouraged to meet with a department advisor early in their academic career. It is advisable to meet with a department advisor no later than the first semester of your sophomore year.
Appointments for current U-M students are made by clicking on the 'Make an Advising Appointment' button below.
Non- and prospective U-M students (high school students and prospective transfer students) may contact the Undergraduate Program Coordinator by email to discuss the Communication Studies prerequisite courses and major requirements in Communication Studies. If you plan to attend a campus tour and would like to meet with a department advisor, please contact the Undergraduate Program Coordinator by email at least two weeks prior to the visit with your name, e-mail address and contact telephone number.
Walk-in advising will resume in the fall.
