Applying to Re-Enter JMU
Students previously enrolled as degree-seeking students at JMU who have not attended JMU for one or more semesters and who wish to return to their studies at JMU are classified as re-entry students. Students who plan to re-enter, regardless of their academic standing at the time of departure, must apply for re-admission through the Office of Academic Student Services.
Earning a second baccalaureate degree

- Meet all degree and university graduation requirements for both degree programs.
- Meet all prerequisite and course requirements in two different major fields.
Students who hold a baccalaureate degree from another institution may not earn a second baccalaureate degree at James Madison University.
