What is an e-Communication endorsement?

The e-Communication endorsement is an extra notation on the transcript of a graduating senior showing that the student went above and beyond their regular class work to complete extra learning experiences, in addition to maintaining a solid GPA.

We encourage all our students to become endorsed!

 

Why should I get one?

  • The endorsement is a good indication for colleges and employers that they are looking at a super-dedicated e-Communication student.  It is like an honors designation.
  • Students who complete endorsement projects end up with some impressive extra projects in their portfolios to show potential colleges, clients or employers.
  • Endorsement projects give the student the valuable learning experience of working with clients – developing professional communication and collaboration skills.

 

How do I get one?

  • Accumulate 100 hours of work above and beyond assigned class projects — 50 hours during the junior year, and 50 during the senior year.  This may sound like a lot, but it adds up quickly! Certain projects or activities may also count towards community service. There are several ways to accumulate hours:
    • Complete projects for clients.  Clients often come to us, but you may also find your own.
    • Enter extra projects in competitions (like our eMagine Media Festival).
    • Take a college course, summer tech camp, etc.  JCCC is a great place.
    • Teach others what you’ve learned – assist with a class, or work with a teacher or a client who needs to learn what you know.
    • Work at e-Communication events like Open House, or eMagine.

    Log your hours on our website, and save all your work in a safe place.

  • Maintain at least a 3.0 GPA in the 4-year e-Communication course sequence, and at least a 2.5 overall GPA.
  • Give a short presentation at the end of your senior year about one of your projects. Parents, staff, and others attend to support you and enjoy your accomplishments.
