James Madison University

Admissions

Whether you are a prospective applicant, or a returning JMU student, the Office of Admissions has a process outlined for you. 

The Admissions Committee reviews each applicant's qualifications individually, examining a variety of characteristics that indicate academic background and potential for success. Admission to the university is competitive. The Admissions Office receives applications from students representing over 2,000 different high schools. Because high school programs and grading systems vary widely, the secondary program cannot be rigidly prescribed. However, in general, Admissions expects candidates for admission will have completed college preparatory courses in English, mathematics, natural science, social science and foreign language.  To schedule a visit or obtain further information on the admissions process, please visit the JMU Office of Admissions website
