To be considered for admission into JMU's international programs, you must be in good academic standing and hold a minimum cumulative GPA as listed on the program page at the time of application. Applying early and meeting this minimum GPA does not, however, guarantee admission; additional eligibility criteria apply for most programs. Applications from freshmen in their first semester at JMU will be reviewed after semester grades are posted.
Admission to all programs is based, minimally, on a review by a Study Abroad Advisor and a verification of your records via PeopleSoft, the university's information system, not limited to but including your status according to Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, Judicial Affairs, and University Finance. Your participation may be denied if your university records or conduct prior to departure raises doubts that you should be allowed to participate in an international experience.
All students participating in an exchange program will be required to submit a written report within three weeks of completion of the program reflecting on their experience.
