Credit will be awarded for those courses equivalent to courses offered at JMU in which the student has earned a grade of "C" or better.

The Office of the Registrar and the academic unit head of the program in which the student is majoring will determine the credits required for graduation.


With the exception of some Virginia community college degrees in General Studies, JMU General Education requirements will be waived for those students who have completed either the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or the Associate of Arts and Sciences degree at a Virginia community college. For the complete listing of degrees associated with a Virginia Community College that waive all General Education requirements, go to the Transfer Advising website at http://www.jmu.edu/transfer. Students who complete one of these associate degrees and are offered admission will receive junior-level status; however, due to varying major and degree requirements, junior-level status does not guarantee graduation in two years. For more details, consult the Office of Admissions or the JMU Virginia Community College Transfer Guide.
