Updated Operating Hours
In response to the COVID-19 virus, the university has deployed multiple forms of virus-prevention protocols, and we are practicing social distancing and limited public interactions. The Orientation Office in the Student Success Center is closed, while staff are operating remotely. Please contact us at orientation@jmu.edu during this time.

Welcome to Madison! We are delighted to be a part of your journey and your collegiate experience.

We hope to help you become academically and socially acclimated to the JMU campus community.
