Re-Entry - Absence of More Than Two Years

Students who plan to re-enter after an absence of two or more calendar years, regardless of their academic standing at the time of departure, must apply for readmission through the Office of Academic Student Services by completing the Re-Entry Form. Re-entry is not automatic but subject to committee review of the application, the personal statement citing the reason for absence, and evaluation of work completed at JMU as well as work completed at other institutions during the student’s absence from JMU.
