DMC Program AdmissionsLike most premier academic programs, admission to the Data Marketing Communications (DMC) program at the WVU Reed College of Media is competitive. While our program is offered entirely online, the total number of available seats for each entry term is limited to keep class sizes small and enable plenty of one-on-one interaction with professors. Therefore, it is important for applicants to submit materials that properly highlight their qualifications and skills.

The GRE/GMAT admission requirement may be waived for interested applicants who meet
certain professional or educational conditions. Please submit your information

Students are admitted to the DMC program once per year for the Early Fall session. However, the DMC program operates on a rolling admissions basis and qualified applicants may be accepted earlier than the acceptance notification date.
There may be several weeks between the day you submit your application and when you receive an admissions decision from the DMC program. All applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision whether accepted or rejected; however, the timing can vary depending on when the complete application is received. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply before the program’s application deadline in order to receive full consideration. If the application deadline is met, then an admissions decision will be given by the corresponding acceptance notification date.
Application Submission Deadlines
Applying before the deadline gives applicants the optimal amount of time to explore and receive financial aid, order books and plan their course of study. Complete applications must be received by the following deadline to receive full consideration for admission:
|Admission Term||Application Deadline|
|Early Fall (August)
Applications will be processed after the deadline until an incoming class is full. Once all available seats have been filled, qualified applicants will be deferred to the next incoming term. The DMC program may also implement a waitlist for an incoming session.
