Advising NotesPlease Read: This major guide is a list of all possible major courses offered in the Virginia Community College System. Not all courses may be offered at your community college, and you are not required to complete all these courses in order to transfer. Rather, it’s designed to help you meet JMU major requirements before you transfer, and be better prepared to progress through the major once you arrive at JMU. Please be sure to read the advising notes for additional information on the major.
1. There are no VCCS equivalents for IA courses.
2. The IA sequence of major courses requires 3 years of study at JMU and typically begins in the sophomore year. Students who want to transfer after one year should plan their courses carefully to match general education requirements.
