Freshman Requirements

JSU Home » Admissions » How do I attend? » Freshman

We strongly encourage you to apply six to nine months prior to the expected date of enrollment.

You must submit an official high school transcript showing course work through your junior year at the time of application, and submit a final high school transcript after graduation showing graduation date and diploma type. JSU requires you to complete high school with an acceptable diploma type.

Successful completion of the GED is acceptable in lieu of high school graduation.
