ASU’s journalism school assures HollywoodLife.com that Mama Grizzly’s controversial cub wouldn’t get any special treatment.

Bristol Palin, 20, is reportedly considering taking classes at Arizona State University, a school with a strong communications program.

Bristol’s mother Sarah Palin graduated from the University of Idaho in 1987 — after bouncing between four other institutions — with a bachelor’s degree in communications, specifically focusing on journalism. HollywoodLife.com spoke exclusively with a representative from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication about how the school would embrace the famous Alaskan if she were to apply in the same field as her mother.

“If Bristol’s application does come across our table we will treat it just like everyone else’s and thoroughly look it over,” the representative informs us. “But we can’t confirm or deny anything right now.”

Since attempts at acting and dancing haven’t gone too well for her, Bristol Palin has since set her sights on higher education. ASU seems to be at the top of her list, ever since she purchased a massive 5-bedroom home in nearby Maricopa, Ariz.
