Welcome

The Center for Global Engagement's International Student Scholar Services staff is looking forward to meeting you in person, during Transitions, on the weekend of January 14! By virtue of your immigration status, traveling many miles, and the many logistical issues that come into play when you do not reside in the US, Transitions has been designed to address your many issues prior to JMU’s first day of classes.

Before we meet during Transitions, we know that you have several steps to take care of before you even arrive. To make this process easier for you, click or tap on these icons/buttons to obtain more information and best guide your decisions:
