Admitted Students

  • Meet Madison
    A virtual version of our annual admitted student events, Meet Madison visits will engage students with the type of class experience found in JMC. One of our Madison professors will lead a 25 minute mini-class, exploring a topic that might be discussed in a JMC classroom. Additional time will be provided for questions for the professor about JMC majors, classes, and opportunities.

    6:30pm ET- February 11, April 13

    Registration will begin in mid-January 2021. These events will be limited to the admitted students.

  • Pre-NSO Academic Q&A
    In preparation for this summer’s New Student Orientation, you might have questions about how your AP credits apply, what courses you’ll be required to take, and how many classes in and out of JMC you’ll be taking. These small group Q&A sessions will allow families to ask questions of JMC’s Assistant Director for Academic Affairs, Lindsay Snyder, related to the academics at JMC and MSU.
    Background information will be uploaded to the website prior to these sessions, which will answer most common questions, and these sessions will fill in the details of the questions you still have.

    Registration will begin mid-February 2021. Parents are welcome to sign up and attend these sessions.
