Application Document Processing

JMU Office of Admissions processes documents in the order in which they are received. Therefore, it may take several business days for us to process all documents, particularly at our deadline.

Please do not send multiple documents

If your application appears “incomplete” the first time you log into the Applicant Center of MyMadison and know you have sent items, please do not resend documents.

We will contact you by email (provided on your application) to request any missing documents needed to complete your application.

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 below.

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.
