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. To be eligible to apply for full admission to the major, students must complete the following courses with a grade of C or better: IA 200, IA 240, IA 261 and MATH 220. Students will be admitted on the competitive basis of their comgined performance in the 3 IA courses.
3. The IA sequence of major courses begins in the fall semester and requires 3 years at JMU. Students who want to transfer after one year should plan their courses carefully to match general education requirements.
