How To Become A DJ

Once you’ve worked on at least one the above staffs for at least one full semester, you can apply for DJ training. This involves weekly meetings to train in the legal, technical and stylistic aspects of being a DJ. You must also sit-in with experienced DJs and complete an FCC policies exam.

After completing the training requirements, you are eligible for your own DJ shift. Shifts are assigned each semester and preference depends on seniority.

How To Have Your Own Show

After you have experience as a DJ for at least a semester, you can apply for a specialty or talk show. These applications are sent via General Member listserv at the beginning of each semester and are voted for approval by the executive staff of that year.
