Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications

Welcome to Medill! Once you've received your credit evaluation from the registrar, please contact the Medill Office of Student Affairs and Academic Advising to schedule an academic advising appointment this summer. Your advising should take place before you register for fall courses. You and your adviser will review the credit you've already earned and determine your best path at Northwestern. In the meantime, explore the Medill curriculum and community in the BSJ Canvas course (available in June).

Medill Academic Interest and Career Development Form

The Academic Interest and Career Development Form, accessible from your Purple Prep checklist, is due July 31.

Language Placement Exams

Because Medill requires either three units of a foreign language or proficiency in a foreign language as demonstrated on an AP exam or a Northwestern language placement exam, some transfer students will need to take a language placement exam this summer. Please visit the placement exams webpage for more information.


Your adviser will be a go-to resource regarding your academic plan and your experience both inside and outside the classroom. To schedule an academic advising appointment this summer, please contact Daniel MacKenzie, director of Medill Undergraduate Academic Advising, at or 847-491-4484.
