Tips regarding the modules:

  • Review all the modules – they are mandatory for understanding which classes to enroll in and how you enroll.
  • View the modules in succession – the information builds from one module to the next.
  • Pace yourself – give yourself time to understand each module.
  • Explore the different majors through the enrollment worksheets to get a feel for the requirements.
  • Use the tutorials and get familiar with the MyMadison portal.
  • Review the modules again, especially the enrollment worksheets, prior to your enrollment appointment.

We understand you are wrapping up your current studies during this time period which is why we encourage you to start reviewing the modules early.  The information is delivered in a module format so you may work through them as time permits.  Introducing you to the enrollment process and the basics of university academics prepares you to take responsibility for your academic career and to be successful over the next four years. 

  • After working through the modules, you will understand what courses you need to enroll in for your first semester.  The enrollment worksheets guide you through the process.
  • You will create your schedule once the enrollment appointment opens. Information on locating your enrollment appointment is in the modules.
  • You will arrive for your orientation appointment with a full schedule that you may discuss with your advisor.
  • You will check your JMU email on a regular basis for information from your advisor and the university.  Your JMU email is the official communication platform for the university and, for security purposes, advisors will only respond to email from your JMU student email address.
