If you have been offered admission to JMU, we encourage you to attend Choices, a special day-long program for admitted freshmen and their families. While the day’s schedule is flexible, we hope you’ll plan to attend the CoB events, which include a morning presentation in the Convocation Center and an afternoon meet-and-greet session with faculty and current students in Zane D. Showker Hall in the afternoon.

Upcoming Choices sessions:

  • Feb 18, 2017
  • April 7, 2017
  • April 10, 2017
Visit CoB

Interested in learning more about our academic programs?


Each admitted freshman will be considered for the Madison Award for Academic Excellence, and there is no application required. Amounts for this award vary, and priority is given to those students who are admitted during early action. 

The College of Business also offers a limited number of merit- and need-based scholarships each year to incoming freshmen and current students. Applications are typically available beginning in February, and criteria and amount of award vary between scholarships.  

Contact Associate Dean Molly Brown at (540) 568-1697 or email her at

Differential Tuition

As a student in the CoB, you’ll pay “differential tuition,” an additional charge over JMU’s standard tuition fee - a practice that is common among top business schools and adds value to your overall academic experience. For example, these funds ensure that our students have access to state-of-the-art technology, such as the Capital Markets Lab, and to hands-on experiences such as learning tours, professional networking opportunities and career development activities. You’ll gain a competitive edge for internships and job openings.
