Accepted Student Day is an exclusive event for students who have been accepted to JSU as first year students (freshmen). This is your opportunity to learn what is next for you as an accepted student and to connect with the academic faculty of your anticipated major. Students may bring one supporter to experience the day as well!

Mark your calendar! 2020 Accepted Student Dates are February 7th and March 6th! 

We can't wait to welcome you to campus!
