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. Admission to Engineering is limited. Click here to view the admission requirements. Because there are no VCCS equivalents for some of the ENGR prerequisite courses, that generally mean students will be at JMU for three years.
2. Students who are completing an engineering associate degree at a school that doesn't offer the equivalent of ENGR 112 (EGR 115 + EGR 120), should transfer in the spring. ENGR 112 is only offered in the spring at JMU.
3. JMU has an articulation agreement with Blue Ridge Community College.
4. Requests for individual transfer credit evaluations should be directed to the Transfer Advising Coordinator or the Engineering Student Coordinator.
