Incoming Freshman and Transfer Students

All of the following eligibility requirements must be met in order to qualify for an interview with CSP.

Admission to JMU

All applicants must be admitted to JMU as a new incoming freshman or transfer student in the Fall semester of the application year to qualify for an interview, along with the other eligibility requirements. Students admitting in the Spring semester are ineligible to apply as a new incoming student. CSP does not require students to be admitted to JMU at the time the CSP application is submitted. This eligibility requirement will be determined when JMU admission decisions are posted.

Financially Eligible

Financial eligibility is determined by the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). All applicants must complete the FAFSA by the March 1st priority filing deadline, and must qualify for a Federal Pell Grant. To remain in the program, students must qualify annually for the Federal Pell Grant as determined by the FAFSA. Refer to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for more information.
