COVID-19 Updates

Cocky Cares

The Office of Admissions at JSU is committed to providing you with information regarding your future enrollment. Our campus has been operating remotely over the past month, and we are excited to announce that our offices will re-open to visitors starting May 18th. We ask you to only come into the office if it is necessary, as your safety and the safety of our staff are our highest priority. Here are some of the changes we have made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic: 

  • 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.
