You should mail private scholarship checks directly to the following address:
James Madison University
University Business Office
738 South Mason Street

The University Business Office (UBO) will credit any outside scholarship(s) received between May and December to your fall semester account, unless you or the donor provide other instructions. If you intend to use these funds to pay part or your entire tuition bill, you should submit your scholarship check to the UBO before the billing deadline.
Note: University bills not paid by the deadline may be subject to penalty. For questions regarding the assessment of late fees, please contact the UBO at (540) 568-6505.
State and federal regulations require that we consider outside sources of assistance, such as scholarships, tuition waivers, prepaid plans, and veterans benefits, when awarding financial aid. You should notify our office as soon as possible about your expected receipt of these funds. In some cases, we may have to adjust your existing financial aid package to make sure it remains within state and federal guidelines.
