The Individualized Study Major uses e-mail to keep in touch with current students and alumni. As a JMU student, you receive an automatic and free e-mail account. You must activate the account and use it. The user name and password for the e-mail is the same as you need to use ECAMPUS to register for classes.
To activate your e-mail account, go to JMU's webmail page.
This will bring you to a page entitled "Computing Accounts Portal."
Click on the link at "Activate my e-ID" and follow the steps. You read information on computer security. Then you get to take your first college test! The web will walk you through some questions to make sure you understand. But don't worry! If you miss, you get to try again.
The combination of your user name and password will get you into Webmail, ECAMPUS, and Blackboard.
Go to this page for more information on Webmail. There are specific tutorials on different aspects of the Webmail system at the site.
If there is another e-mail address that you use all of the time, just forward your Webmail to it. You need to make it so that all of your e-mail that goes to your JMU e-mail comes to the e-mail address you check on a regular basis. We use the e-mail you gave us, but the university administration will send you e-mail to your JMU email address. It is your responsibility to know what they send. By forwarding your JMU e-mail, you never miss anything. JMU offers tutorials on how to forward your Webmail.
