Welcome to the James Madison University summer session information entry point. This web site serves as easy access to summer session information for currently enrolled JMU students and non-degree seeking students interested in taking courses at JMU during the summer.

The summer session offerings at JMU make it easy for you to plan ahead. Many of JMU's most popular and high demand courses are offered during the summer session. Understand, however, summer sessions cover the same amount of material as a fifteen-week term during the academic year. Be prepared for an intensive and comprehensive classroom experience. Current JMU students enroll in summer courses as per their registration appointment.

JMU Students are assigned enrollment appointments beginning March 27th.

Summer-only students may begin enrolling May 8th at 12:01 am if  the application process has been completed.
