If you are touring JMU (register today) and would like to meet with a representative of the Honors College we offer three unique visitation opportunitites.

1) Fall Open House and Spring CHOICES
Prospective students may visit us in the fall at one of two Open Houses hosted by JMU’s Office of Admissions on Saturday, September 28 or Saturday, November 9, 2019. The Honors College typically holds open drop-in hours between 9 am and 1 pm, allowing prospective students and their guests to meet with Honors College faculty and students in Hillcrest House. Admitted students are welcome to visit us in the spring during CHOICES on Friday, April 3 or Monday, April 6, 2020.

2) Honors MAP Tour
Get an inside track into the Honors College community by meeting with one of our Madison Advising Peers (MAP). When available, these exemplary current students meet with prospective students and their guests and to share information about the admissions process, Honors coursework, and the Honors experience. In the instance that MAPs are unavailable to lead a drop-in tour, an Honors College staff member will guide prospective students and guests.

Monday, 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Tuesday, 12:30- 5:00 pm
