Applying to Re-Enter JMU

Students previously enrolled as degree-seeking students at JMU who have not attended JMU for one or more semesters and who wish to return to their studies at JMU are classified as re-entry students. Students who plan to re-enter, regardless of their academic standing at the time of departure, must apply for re-admission through the Office of Academic Student Services.

Earning a second baccalaureate degree

A student may only earn two different baccalaureate degrees through concurrent or consecutive enrollment at James Madison University. The following requirements must be met to earn a second degree:

  • Earn a minimum of 150 credit hours, including a minimum of 60 hours at JMU.
  • Meet all degree and university graduation requirements for both degree programs.
  • Meet all prerequisite and course requirements in two different major fields.

Students who hold a baccalaureate degree from another institution may not earn a second baccalaureate degree at James Madison University.

JMU alumni who wish to obtain a second major need to contact JMU Outreach and Engagement.
