Whom should I contact for assistance?

As the fall semester begins, the office of the Graduate School will be open during normal office hours, Monday through Friday, 8 am to noon and 1 to 5 pm, except during campus holidays.  Most staff members meet with visitors by appointment only, so we recommend that all visitors contact the office or the staff member you would like to meet (see below) prior to visiting. If you are uncertain who to contact, please send us an email (grad@jmu.edu), telephone (540-568-7860) or text (540 269-1986 [US only]).  Tell us the nature of your request and provide contact information.  We will have the appropriate staff member contact you shortly.
