Steps for Summer Transfer Students

1. Accept the Offer

First, accept the offer of admission and pay your deposit using the MyMadison Applicant Center. Once your deposit has been posted, you will be prompted via email to change your JMU e-ID password so you can begin your Transfer One Book steps.

2. JMU Email Account

If you have not done so already, set up your JMU email account.

Once you have activated your JMU email account, visit the JMU Email website to begin checking your @dukes.jmu.edu email.

3. Emergency Notification

In the Student Center, you can choose how you want JMU to notify you in case of a campus-related emergency or inclement weather.

Log in to MyMadison, select the Student tab, click on the Student Center link, and scroll down to the Personal Information section, and select Home Phone Number. Follow the instructions for Emergency Notification Authorization in the middle of the page. Save your changes when complete.

4. Emergency Contact

Log in to MyMadison, select the Student tab, click on the Student Center link, scroll down to the Personal Information section, and select Emergency Contact. Follow the instructions on the page. Save your changes when you're finished.

5. Math Placement Exam

The Math Placement Exam (MPE) is a placement test, not a graded test. Completion of the placement test is mandatory for all new transfer students. Your score will be available on MyMadison within 24 hours after completion of the test. You will need your scores when you schedule your classes. (Estimated 90 minute exam)

View important information from the Mathematics Department.

Take the Math Placement Exam.

6. Foreign Language Placement Exam

The placement exam includes reading comprehension, vocabulary and grammar questions (Spanish, French, German and Russian online only). For language placement testing of other languages, contact the language coordinator.

Review and complete the Foreign Language Placement Exam.

7. Contact an Academic Advisor

After you have completed all of the above, you will need to contact the individual academic department of your major and request an advising appointment. You will not be able to enroll in summer classes until after you have consulted with an advisor from your major department. Click on the 'Find your Academic Advisor.' link below to find a list of academic departments and their contact information. You should call the department and set up an appointment to meet with an advisor in person or by phone to discuss the requirements for your major. It is best to schedule an appointment to make sure an advisor is available to meet with you since faculty schedules are often full with teaching and advising commitments.

Find your academic advisor.

8. Enroll in Summer Classes

Summer sessions consist of 4, 6, 8 and 10 week sessions. Not all classes are offered every session. A list of 2014 summer terms and a partial list of summer class offerings can be found on the JMU Summer Session website. You should consult with your academic advisor first before enrolling in any summer classes to make sure the classes you take count towards General Education, major, degree or graduation requirements.

Once you have consulted with an academic advisor from your major department to determine the summer classes you need to take, the advisor will let University Advising know you are ready to register for summer classes and the advising hold will be removed. Once your deposit has been posted, and you have changed your JMU e-ID password, you can access MyMadison to enroll in classes. MyMadison is JMU's online registration system. If you are not familiar with MyMadison, please review the MyMadison tutorial. Having an adequate understanding of how to use MyMadison will make your enrollment process easier. Transfer students admitted for the summer semester can enroll in summer classes during open registration beginning March 28.

9. Immunization Form

All students must submit an Immunization Form to the JMU Health Center as a condition of admission to the university, per state law. Download the Immunization Form from jmu.edu/MyJMUHealth and log in to the University Health Center’s secure online portal, MyJMUHealth, to enter your immunization dates.

A completed Immunization Form must be signed by a health care provider and turned in to the University Health Center at the address listed on the form. A faxed Immunization Form will not be accepted. If your immunization dates are not entered in MyJMUHealth and your Immunization Form is not completed and verified by April 1, you will be subject to a non-refundable $50 fee and an enrollment hold will be placed on your account.
