Montevallo and Jefferson State Announce Partnership with continuUM Program
On Nov. 1, UM and Jefferson State Community College announced a partnership to give students a smoother transition from the community college to the four-year public university.
The formalized program, continuUM, offers Jefferson State students guaranteed admission to UM after earning 24 transferable credit hours.
Students accepted into the continuUM program are issued a Montevallo student ID, which grants them the ability to use online services including digital library resources through Carmichael Library.
Jefferson State students can use the ID to utilize the McChesney Student Activity Center workout areas and attend UM athletic and student life events. They will also have access to career counseling advice through the Career Development Center and pre-transfer advising.
