Graduation Requirements

Because of the March 19th tornados and the associated disruptions many of our students continue to face, we would like to make the EPP requirements as convenient as possible.  Consequently, this semester, JSU is allowing students to take the EPP using an online, non-proctored version at a time that is most convenient for them.  Please check your JSU email for instructions from your Certification Advisor.  Please be aware, however, that students must complete the online EPP by Sunday, April 22nd.

If you are unable to take the test online, please contact JSU Testing Services at or (256) 782 5475 for an appointment in the JSU Testing Center.
