The Adult Degree Program (ADP) addresses the needs of adult learners through an innovative, personalized program plan of study providing students with the opportunity to develop an undergraduate degree that meets their individual educational and professional goals.


To be eligible for the ADP, applicants must be at least 22 years of age, have at least 30 transferable college credits and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher for all prior coursework.

With very limited exceptions, students in the Individualized Study major (the ADP’s academic major) cannot transfer to another major at JMU.

Degrees Offered

Students in the ADP have the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Individualized Study (B.I.S.), a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Individualized Study or a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Individualized Study. The General Education  core requirements differ by degree.
