Leaving the University for Academic Reasons

Continued enrollment at JMU depends upon an undergraduate student's ability to maintain satisfactory academic progress toward attaining a degree. The university measures this ability by the student's cumulative grade point average. To assist students in maintaining satisfactory progress, JMU has adopted academic standards designed to provide early identification of students who are experiencing academic difficulty and to provide timely intervention through academic support programs.

Returning to the University after Academic Leave

Degree-seeking undergraduate students who have been absent from JMU for two or more years must re-apply for admission through the Office of Admissions. Undergraduates who have not attended JMU for one or more semesters but less than two years must complete an Intent to Enroll form by the deadline for the term as indicated on the form. Students who left in good standing should submit the form to the Office of the Registrar. Students who left on probation or suspension must submit the form to the Director of Academic Student Services. All registration holds must be cleared before the student will be eligible to register.  The deadline for submitting Intent to Enroll forms is strictly enforced.

Deadlines for Submission of Intent to Enroll Forms:

  • Fall Semester: July 1
  • Spring Semester: November 1
  • Summer Session: April 1
