With cutting edge programs and research opportunities, our faculty and students are
shaping the future.
Before you begin, keep in mind that the programs within the Division of Journalism
are considered Limited Access Programs at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University.
This means that SJGC admission standards are higher than the university’s. Available
freshmen seats may be limited and access to those seats is competitive based on high
school performance. Specifically, freshmen applicants to the Division of Journalism
must have a 2.5 high school GPA and a minimum 1010 SAT/21 ACT score.
If you do not meet these requirements, but you have been accepted to FAMU, you must
complete 30-35 semester hours in general education requirement courses, maintain a
2.5 overall GPA and earn at least a 2.5 GPA in freshman English composition courses
to be admitted as a journalism major.
If you meet these requirements or feel that you are on your way to meeting them, start
learning about the application process.
