NOTE:  The vacant week between graduation and the start of the first summer sessions has been eliminated for the benefit of our students.  The earlier start allows students to complete classes earlier for work/intership purposes and eliminates the week of waiting to see if classes will make.     

Welcome to the James Madison University summer session information entry point. This Web site is intended to serve as easy access to summer session information for all students, those currently enrolled with JMU and non-degree seeking students interested in taking courses during the summer.

The summer session offerings at James Madison University make it easy for you to plan ahead. Many of JMU's most popular and high demand courses are offered in the summer. We offer traditional classroom formats, online formats and study abroad summer opportunities. Understand, however, summer sessions cover the same amount of material as in a sixteen-week term during the academic year, so come prepared for an intensive classroom experience. Current JMU students enroll in summer courses as per their registration appointment. Summer-only students may begin enrolling May 1, 2017 if they have completed the application process.
