Advising Notes

Please 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. Students who complete the equivalent of MATH 220, Elementary Statistics, at the community college, will be able to take additional statistics classes without needing to complete MATH 318 at JMU first.
2. MATH 238 at JMU may be substituted for 300. The combination of MTH 175-176-177-178-277-279 will fill requirements for JMU MATH 235-236-237-238.
3. Students planning to transfer in Mathematics and Statistics are encouraged to complete the appropriate associate's degree before transfer. It is strongly recommended to complete at least MTH 173-174 or MTH 273-274 before transfer.
