Skype Information Sessions

Schedule a Skype session!Whether you are across the state or half way around the world, if you are an international student interested in JMU but are unable to make a visit to our campus, Skype technology will now allow you and a member of the JMU International Admission Office staff to visit face-to-face.

Once your Skype appointment is scheduled, an admission representative will set aside 30 minutes to share information about our unique campus environment, and answer your questions related to the admissions process and life on the JMU campus. 

We look forward to meeting with you face-to-face and helping you to decide if JMU is the right fit for you.
