Document Processing

This page is designed for you to check the date of document and application processing. Many days, documents are not processed on the day they were received in our office. This is the most up-to-date source from tracking our document and application processing. 

The JMU Office of Admissions processes documents (electronic and paper) in the order in which they are received.

Freshman Early Action Applicants:

The JMU Early Action process is now complete.

Freshman Regular Decision Applicants:

Currently processing documents received in our office on January 19th and applications received in our office on January 19th.

Transfer Applicants:

Currently processing documents received in our office on January 20th and applications received in our office on January 19th.

Log in to MyMadison

After submitting the online application for admission, applicants will be asked to activate a JMU e-ID to gain access the Applicant Center in MyMadison. Applicants may then check the status of their application within the Applicant Center. 

Your Applicant Center account has the most up-to-date information when monitoring your application. You are encouraged to check this site frequently throughout the application process. View the tutorial.

Please note: When your transcript is sent electronically, your Applicant Center account does not immediately indicate receipt. Documents (electronic and mailed), will no longer appear in your "To Do" list once they have been checked for missing information and inaccuracies.

It is the applicants' responsibility to complete their applications for admission.

Important: MyMadison Login Update

The MyMadison login process is being updated to eliminate the use of Security Challenge Questions to log into MyMadison. All applicants will use the One Time Passcode challenge beginning January 5, 2017 to log into the Applicant Center of MyMadison. The One Time Passcode options are sent to an email address or mobile phone number that you registered. You must have access to the email account or phone while logging into MyMadison and can change your preference after a successful login.

Unfortunately, the Applicant Center of MyMadison is experiencing some technical difficulties at this time. JMU Information Technology is working to fix the issues regarding the e-ID activation process. We apologize for the inconvenience and difficulty that this has caused, but appreciate your patience and cooperation. We will post another update once problems have been resolved.

If you require technical support while logging into MyMadison, please contact the JMU IT Help Desk at (540) 568-3555 or
