The JACard is the official photo identification card of JMU and is issued by the James Madison University Card Services Office. RN-BSN students are required to wear their JACard during summer practicum courses, but may also use them to access the library and other buildings after hours and at eating establishments on campus. They may be also be used for area discounts as well! View more information on JACards

To obtain your JACard:

  1. Log into using your JMU e-ID and password.
  2. Upload a bust-shot photo with a white background (think passport photo with a smile) and a photo of your driver's license or government ID for verification purposes. Photos should be PNG or JPG files as shown below:

Be sure to complete this process to obtain your JACard by the start of the term in which you are entering. You will not be able to participate in the summer practicum courses if you do not have your JACard.
