Information for Future Students

The Office of Admissions at JSU is committed to providing you with information regarding your future enrollment. 

Here are some things we are doing to help:

  • Effective April 8, 2020, JSU will waive admission ACT/SAT test score requirements for first-time freshman students entering in Summer or Fall 2020.
  • First-time freshman and transfer scholarships will be awarded through the first day of the Fall 2020 semester. The scholarship upgrade (to allow for submission of additional test scores) deadline was extended from May 1 to August 1.
  • JSU’s priority decision deadline is May 1; however, JSU practices rolling admission. JSU will accept applications through the beginning of the Fall 2020 semester.  

We have also modified our campus tour schedule to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff. We will also continue with our virtual information sessions. A link to register is at the Campus Visit page listed below.
