Important Notes: You can apply to the Film Program as soon as you enroll at CWU. But those students who have fewer than 45 university level credits will be restricted from taking 300 or 400 level classes during their first year in the Film program. New Film Program majors with fewer than 45 credits should join the Film Club and will be encouraged to participate as Production Assistant (PA) crew members on the advanced class film projects that happen frequently through-out the school year.
