Request for Information on Dependent Students
As of July 1, 2008, James Madison University will provide to parents of dependent students access to educational records upon written request. This policy applies to current JMU students who are registered for the current semester or pre-registered for the following semester if between terms.
Please note: Students are encouraged to view their unofficial transcript periodically via their MyMadison account. Students can also request an official transcript through MyMadison; they have the option of sending the transcript via USPS or electronically, and can request to have it sent when final grades are posted for a specific semester. If your student wishes to send a transcript to you in order to share his/her grade information, please ask him/her to make the request via MyMadison.
