The following advisement plan is a recommended course of study. Academic programs offered at Jones College are designed to meet the educational needs and advancement of students who plan to transfer course credit to a university and complete a bachelor’s degree. As part of each academic program, students will take courses to meet the Jones College’s general education core requirements and electives as determined by the student and his/her faculty advisor. All academic programs are designed to lead to an Associate of Arts degree.
To streamline the transfer of credit from Jones College to any university in the State of Mississippi, Jones College participates in the articulation agreement between the Mississippi Community College Board and the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning. For the purpose of ensuring transfer-ability within Mississippi, the Mississippi Articulation Transfer Tool (MATT) shall be used to advise and guide students in choosing the best courses to take as part of the requirements to graduate from Jones College with an Associate of Arts degree.
If there are questions, current students should contact their faculty adviser and potential students should contact Enrollment Services .
1Students unprepared for trigonometry should take College Algebra first.
2Students pursuing an ACS-certified chemistry degree should take the Physics with Calculus sequence (PHY 2515, PHY 2525) and Differential Equations. An ACS-certified degree is preferred for students interested in pursuing a graduate degree in chemistry.
3Calculus IV is required at MVSU and Ole Miss.
4MSU requires two semesters of the same foreign language; Ole Miss requires six hours of foreign language at the 2000 level. USM requires Speech.
