Curriculum and Instruction

JMU Curriculum Website - The Curriculum and Instruction process is mandated by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV). The process at JMU is outlined in the Faculty Handbook.Faculty members can access existing courses and enter course information through this secure online curriculum system. Approvers are notified through email when proposals are ready for review.

First Week Attendance Policy

At the instructor's discretion, any student registered for a class in the College of Arts and Letters who does not attend the first two (2) scheduled meetings of the class (or does not attend the first scheduled meeting of a class that meets once a week) may be administratively dropped from the class. Students dropped for non-attendance will be notified via e-mail by the Dean of the College.

Students who fail to attend the first two meetings of a class for which they are registered but who do not receive an e-mail notification have not been administratively dropped by their instructor. Unless those students drop the course on their own, they will receive a grade at the end of the semester.

All students are responsible for verifying the accuracy of their schedules and changes made in their schedule via e-mail and through the web.
