The Honors College requires a separate application for admission into the college. The Honors College offers an Honors Interdisciplinary Studies minor (students are identified as Honors Scholars).

Students accepted into the Honors College pursue a minor in Honors Interdisciplinary Studies, with the option to complete a Capstone Experience. The requirements of the Honors Interdisciplinary Studies Minor are flexible, and are designed to provide students with a space to synthesize multiple avenues of interest. The mission of the James Madison University Honors College is to develop a diverse community of inquisitive and aspirational learners from all parts of campus through distinctive and challenging educational experiences.
