STARS Area V: Business Marketing Education

About This Document

Jacksonville State University is dedicated to making the transfer transition as easy as possible.  As required by Alabama State Law, Jacksonville State University will take your course work as outlined on the STARS Transfer Guide and graduate you with the same number of hours as our native students in the same major (assuming you do not change majors).  The STARS Transfer Guide and the Jacksonville State University Area V page, if used correctly, will guide you through your first two years of course work and will prevent loss of credit hours upon transfer to Jacksonville State University.  If you have obtained a STARS Transfer Guide for Business Education: Middle/High School, which is used for JSU’s Business Marketing Education major, we strongly recommend that you print this page and use it along with your official STARS guide.  Upon transfer, please bring these documents to your advisor so that we can insure a smooth academic transition from the community college to Jacksonville State University.


You are to follow the appropriate STARS transfer guide as directed in each AREA of your major specific guide, unless exceptions and/or recommendations are noted in the corresponding AREA(S) I-V on this Jacksonville State University AREA V document.  Please follow any recommendation within an AREA to insure a better transfer experience.
