A legacy student is defined as any student whose parents or grandparents have graduated from JMU. There are two Legacy Scholarships available through the JMU Alumni Association:
1. Two scholarships are annually awarded and are renewable for up to four years if the recipient remains in good academic standing (open to any incoming legacy freshman).
2. Multiple (approx. 27-30) one-time legacy scholarships are awarded to incoming legacy freshman that are Virginia residents. These scholarships are funded by the sale of JMU Virginia state license plates.
