Enrollment and Course Adjustment Procedures

-See “Office of the Registrar Handbook” for important enrollment policies and procedures.

 Initial Enrollment

Students should prepare their schedule by going to www.jmu.edu/registrar/, clicking on ‘MyMadison’ and doing a Class Search. Discuss your schedule with your advisor and clear all holds or other obligations that may prevent your enrollment. Obtain needed special approvals before you enroll (see Permission to Enroll (override), Audit under Grading Basis, Repeating courses, Overload Approval and Academic Advising in the Office of the Registrar Handbook). Check for closed course listings and class schedule updates on the web at mymadison.jmu.edu and make adjustments to your schedule if your first choice selections are not available.

Course Adjustment
(Add/Drop, Grading Option Changes, Repeat Declaration, Withdrawal)

Enrolled students may adjust their schedule through the deadlines stated in the Office of the Registrar Dates and Deadlines section.

Special Notes

Students who have applied as new undergraduate, graduate or special students and who have not received confirmation of acceptance by the beginning of open enrollment should contact the appropriate admitting office.

Enrollment Holds: Outstanding obligations or debts to university offices may result in a hold on your enrollment. The fact that a student did not receive a notice of a hold is insufficient reason to cause the hold to be released. Students must contact the office that placed the hold for clearance.

Web Enrollment and Course Adjustment

Students may enroll or adjust their schedule on the web daily beginning at their enrollment appointment time. Undergraduate appointment times are scheduled in priority order according to the cumulative hours earned as of the beginning of the spring semester. Students will need to check MyMadison to find their specific appointment start time. Appointments are assigned by credit hours earned. Students may enroll any time after their appointment start time and until the add/drop deadline expire for that session.

Summer Enrollment Appointments

Students must check MyMadison to see their specific appointment start time.

Graduate and Doctoral students may register through the deadlines anytime the system is available beginning at 12:00 a.m. March 24.

Non degree-seeking students may register through the deadlines anytime the system is available beginning May 1.

For assistance with registration, please contact the Office of the Registrar’s location on the 3rd floor of Warren Hall. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday - Friday. You may also call 568-6166.

Academic Suspension

Summer - Students who were placed on academic suspension at the end of the spring semester, 2014, may, with approval from either their dean or the director of Academic Student Services, attend summer session and attempt to re-qualify for future attendance.  Suspended students who have not attended JMU for two or more calendar years must apply for readmission to the university. Applications are available online: http://www.jmu.edu/acstudserv/2years.shtml.  Suspended students who have been away for less than two years must submit the Intent to Enroll form no later than April 1, 2014 to the Director of Academic Student Services.

The strategy employed to re-qualify for attendance is critically important. Therefore, suspended undergraduates attending summer session must attend a workshop held by Academic Student Services. By not attending this workshop, suspended undergraduates will be dropped from (or not permitted to register for) classes in the six-week and second four-week summer sessions.

 

Who's Eligible to Attend Summer Session:

Graduate and undergraduate students enrolled at JMU during the 2014 spring semester.
New degree-seeking undergraduate students offered admission to the 2014 fall semester (the Office of Admissions should be contacted to request a change in the date of entry).
New degree-seeking graduate students offered admission to the 2014 fall semester (the Graduate School should be contacted to request a change in the date of entry).
Non degree-seeking students who have submitted an outreach student enrollment form to Outreach Programs for the summer session. (Outreach students must submit an enrollment form for each semester or summer that they wish to attend).

You must apply for admission to JMU if you are seeking:

  • Admission as a new undergraduate student.
  • Admission as a new graduate student.
  • Admission as a re-entry undergraduate student.
    (*a student who has not been enrolled in course work in the past two years).
  • Admission as a re-entry graduate student (a graduate student who was not enrolled in course work in the previous term).
  • Non degree-seeking student wishing to enroll in summer session course work.

*Undergraduate students who have not attended JMU for one or more semesters but less than two years must complete the ‘Intent to Enroll’ postmarked no later than April 1, 2014. Students who left in good standing should submit the form to the Office of the Registrar. Students who left on academic probation or academic suspension must submit the form to the Director of Academic Student Services.
