Internet Access

Participating in virtual orientation programs requires access to reliable internet. This virtual Orientation is designed to be experienced on a computer, but if access to a computer is difficult, a phone with web browsing capability may work for parts of it. If you are concerned about your internet access, there are a variety of resources available to help ensure you are able to join the virtual orientation programs.

First, let us know if you are dealing with a problem related to internet access so we can help offer alternative options and notify others about your situation.

Second, public spaces such as libraries and coffee shops may offer free internet access. Please continue to practice social distancing and prioritize your safety if you visit these spaces. Here are maps of locations offering public wifi:

You will use MyMadison to enroll in courses. Mobile MyMadison (the version of MyMadison that works on a phone) is under revision. Until Mobile MyMadison is ready, it is best to use MyMadison on a computer. If you don't have internet access on your computer, you could try using your mobile phone as a "hotspot" to connect your computer to the internet. If you have questions about any of this, please contact the JMU IT Helpdesk.
