Application 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, particularly close to the deadline. This is the most up-to-date source for 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: The Early Action application process is complete and decisions are posted in the Applicant Center of MyMadison.

Freshman Regular Decision: The Regular Decision application process is complete and decisions are posted in the Applicant Center of MyMadison.

Transfer Applicants: We are currently processing:

  • Documents received in our office on March 28
  • Coalition applications received on March 5
  • JMU Online applications received on March 7
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.

Residency Document Processing

In-State Tuition Applicants: We are currently processing:

Received your admissions decision and have a question?

Our Decision Inquiry form is ONLY for applicants who have received an official admission decision. An admissions counselor will reach out to you regarding your individual question and/or decision within 10 business days after submitting the Decision Inquiry Form.

Due to FERPA privacy laws, we can only discuss information for freshman applicants with the student, the counselor, and the parent(s)/guardian(s) listed in the application. For transfer students, we can only discuss informaition with the student who applied.

If you have a question but you have NOT received an official admission decision, please contact the Office of Admissions at admissions@jmu.edu or 540-568-5681 .

Check out our Dates and Deadlines page to see when we will release your decision.
