How do I activate my e-ID?
Upon successful submission of your application, you should receive an email with the subject of: "James Madison University Application," confirming receipt of your online application. Typically within two business days you will receive a second email with the subject of: "James Madison University Applicant Account," containing instructions on activating your JMU e-ID. This timeframe may be extended during periods of high volume.
Click the purple banner at the bottom of the email.
You will be directed to a login page which prompts for your Last Name and PIN. (You provided your 4-digit PIN on your application. See FAQ below for more information about PIN retrieval.) If you receive an error message see below.
Enter your Last Name and PIN, and click continue.
You will proceed through a series of screens that will include the following steps:
JMU Security Awareness Training.
Enrollment in JMU's Password Management System: Setup of Security Questions and One Time Password.
Set your JMU e-ID password.
Verify your One Time Password option.
After successfully setting a password, you will be able to log into https://mymadison.jmu.edu with your e-ID and newly created password.
What is my PIN?
Your PIN is a 4-digit number you provided on your application.
If you have forgotten your PIN you have two options for retrieving it:
Log back into ApplyWeb and navigate to page two of your application.
Contact the Computing HelpDesk at 540-568-3555 between the hours of 8am and 5pm, Monday through Friday.
Your PIN is considered sensitive information and will only be provided after verification of identity.
What is my e-ID?
Your e-ID is different from your ApplyWeb username.
Your e-ID is 8 characters or less and may contain a number - typically the first six letters of your last name, followed by your first and middle initial. For instance Dolley Payne Madison would be madisodp.
If you still have difficulty finding your e-ID, please contact the Computing HelpDesk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-568-3555 between the hours of 8am and 5pm, Monday through Friday.
