DTC Certification Requirements, Pullman Campus

Certification will take place each semester approximately one month before registration for the following semester begins. To apply for certification a student must have the following: 24 hours; a minimum 2.2 gpa; one credit of ENGLISH 300 with evidence of projects OR sufficient evidence of facility in web authoring, animation, video production, and/or graphic design; and a written statement of purpose (approximately 500-750 words) explaining how the DTC major supports the student’s career goals. Certification applications will be reviewed by a committee that includes the DTC Coordinator, one DTC faculty member, the Director of Undergraduates Studies, and one DTC instructor or a graduate student teaching DTC courses. Students will be placed in rank order and the top students will be certified based on how many spots are available. Transfer students with 55 or more hours should complete the certification requirements within two semesters. All students should certify before earning 90 hours.
