Admissions Process

The application for the CMPR Minor consists of an entrance exam and supplementary application material.  Both are due February 4, 2022. 

The entrance exam is a short, timed 90-minute exam administered through Brightspace.  It consists of two parts: drafting a short press release and editing a press release.  The entrance exam will be live for one week (January 31st – February 4th).  You can take the exam on your own schedule, but it is a timed exam so you must complete it in one sitting.  Please e-mail Ms. Lisa Tanaka (Lugo) by Monday, January 31st at to receive a link to the Brightspace exam.

Upon completion of your entrance exam, it will automatically be submitted via Brightspace.  You do not need to e-mail your exam.

  • An updated resume.

Please submit your supplementary application material to Ms. Tanaka (Lugo) at no later than 5:00 p.m on February 4, 2022.
