Come join us!
We certainly hope that you choose to study with us in Jacksonville. Please tell family, friends, and classmates in your home country about the JSU English Language Institute. Additionally, if you think that your former high school and university administrators and instructors might have students who would be interested in attending our courses, please tell them about the ELI. Your assistance will be very helpful in sharing information with others about the learning opportunities at the English Language Institute.
If you have an interest in the JSU ELI, please email us and we will do our best to answer your questions and provide further information about our program.

S. dollars) made payable to Jacksonville State University. The check must be payable through a U. S. bank, i.e. New York, with the bank's routing number encoded on the bottom left corner of the check to include the account number of the customer or bank on which the check is drawn. This applies to official / cashier's checks, personal checks, and money orders. For faster processing, credit card payments will be accepted over the telephone and via fax. If you are using a credit card, please call the Institute directly at (256) 782-8350 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. central time (Monday-Friday), or fax us at (256) 782-8377.
