Advising Notes

All general education requirements are waived with the completion of an A.A. or A.S. degree. This does not include major requirements, such as specific math and/or science required for the major, foreign language for Bachelor of Arts majors, etc.

All Bachelor of Arts (BA) degrees at JMU require through the -202 of foreign language. (It is not required for admission to JMU, however BA-seeking students are strongly encouraged to begin their foreign language prior to transfer.) PVCC offers through the -202 level of French (FRE), German (GER), Japanese (JPN), Latin (LAT), and Spanish (SPA). The PVCC Testing Center (M607) offers placement tests for FRE, GER, and SPA; for placement into JPN or LAT, please contact the instructor directly. JMU does not award transfer credit for the -101 or -102 level of a language students studied in high school (ex: took Spanish II in high school = no transfer credit for SPA 101 or SPA 102). Lastly, ASL will not meet the foreign language requirement for JMU's BA degrees.
