“Pre-med” and “Pre-dental” are NOT undergraduate majors. Students will need to select an academic major in order to earn a bachelor’s degree in preparation for application to these professional programs. Most students interested in these careers major in a scientific field (biology, chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, physics, etc), but students can major in any field as long as application requirements are met according to the professional schools’ specifications. The curriculum below is based on the programs at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (unless otherwise noted). In most cases, online coursework will NOT be accepted to meet pre-requisite requirements. Students should consult with the school of their choice for specific guidelines.

Program Requirements:


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  .
