Course Information

Liberal Arts Courses

Explanation of the Mississippi Junior and Community College Uniform Course Numbering System.
The letter prefix identifies the subject field to which the course belongs. Example: ACC indicates the accounting field. Reading from the left side of a series of digits, the first digit designates the year (1 indicates freshman year, 2 indicates sophomore year). The second digit designates the grouping of courses. The third digit designates the sequence of the course groups. The fourth digit designates the semester credit hours awarded for the course.
ACC (1)213 - freshman (first) year
ACC 1(2)13 - indicates course grouping
ACC 12(2)3 - indicates the sequence (second course in a sequence)
ACC 122(3) - indicates number of semester hours credit awarded (three)

Career and Technical Education Courses

Career and Technical Education at Jones College is part of the comprehensive educational experience. The primary purpose of career and technical programs is to train students in a one or two-year specialized field of study. For an explanation of course numbering and sequencing, see the statement above about “Liberal Arts Courses.” Entrance requirements are the same for technical and liberal arts students, except for stated exceptions. Students enrolling in technical programs are expected to make satisfactory progress in a minimum of five liberal arts courses (15 semester hours credit). Liberal arts courses are to be studied concurrently with the technical courses, and any deviation will require approval of the instructor and the Dean of Career and Technical Education. Failure to comply will jeopardize the student’s continued enrollment in the technical program.
