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 will then be able to 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.

Thank you for using JMU's MyMadison Applicant Center.
