Counselor's Corner

Greetings Counselors!

You are an important individual in a student's life - especially during the college search process. In order to better serve you, we have listed the requirements for students attending as a First Time Freshman, or as a Transfer Student from a community college or another higher education institution. If you would like to have an Admissions Counselor from Jacksonville State University visit your school or, if you need to contact your assigned Admissions Counselor, please visit our Meet Your Counselors page and choose your location.

To assist you and your students in the financial aid processes, we have some resources available below to help students and parents.

Thank you for all you do and if we can ever be of assistance, please let us know.

Go Gamecocks!

Counselors for First Time Freshmen

For a complete listing of requirements for First Time Freshmen, view the Admissions Procedures in the Undergraduate Catalogue.

To Apply:

  1. Student must fill out the JSU admissions application.
  2. Student must submit the required $35 application fee.

Counselors, please submit one transcript through the junior year when a student applies for admission, and a final transcript after the student graduates. Jacksonville State University requires type of diploma and date of graduation on the final transcript.

The diploma type is used to fulfill admission requirements as well as determining if a student is eligible for certain grants. It is also helpful to have class rank and final grade point average if available.

We do prefer that ACT/SAT Scores be sent to JSU from the testing agency. However, we will take ACT/SAT Scores from an official high school transcript if necessary.
