New Student Merit-Based Scholarships

Our 2018-2019 Merit-Based Scholarships are awarded to recognize incoming students who exhibit particularly outstanding academic achievements. There is NO separate application for this scholarship program. Students who have been unconditionally admitted to JSU will automatically be considered if they meet the minimum ACT Composite/SAT Critical Reading + Math test scores and GPA to be eligible for each tier. Please note official test scores and transcripts through the junior year MUST be on file to be considered. Scholarship awards will be offered on a funds-available basis via the student’s JSU Scholarship Account. Please accept the offer as soon as possible. For more information please contact the Scholarships Office.

ACT and SAT scores will be accepted until February 1, 2018, for the Automatic Consideration Scholarships.   Again, subject to funds availability.
