Non-degree Seeking Student Admission

Policies

  • The non-degree seeking student classification includes adult non-degree students, high school non-degree students and students seeking teacher licensure. 
  • Individuals seeking enrollment as a non-degree seeking student must complete the “Non-degree Seeking Student Application.” Virginia residents must also complete the “Checklist and Application for Virginia In-state Tuition Rates.” A non-refundable $15 processing fee must accompany the application. Non-degree seeking students must submit the application and processing fee each semester they enroll in a course. 
  • If a non-degree seeking student wishes to take at course at the 600 level and above, approval by the appropriate department head is required. 
  • Non-degree seeking students can complete the non-degree seeking student application and the in-state form by going to www.jmu.edu/outreach  and clicking “Apply Online Now.”
  • Students taking courses on the JMU campus should register online during the dates identified for non-degree seeking students. Follow the instructions at www.jmu.edu/registrar, clicking “For Students” then “Registration Information Dates and Deadlines.” Walk-in registration and course adjustment are also permitted for non-degree seeking students. 
  • Courses taken in the non-degree seeking student category carry university credit, and they may be transferred into a degree program, at the discretion of the program, once the student is admitted.
  • Taking courses as a non-degree seeking student does not constitute admission to a program or imply later applicability of those courses toward a degree. 
  • An individual who has been denied regular admission to JMU as an undergraduate, shall be required to wait for at least one calendar year for admission as a non-degree seeking student.
