Apply for Admission

Applying for admission to JSU is simple!

  1. Complete the application for admission online.
  2. Submit all required documents for your admission type (see How Do I Attend?)
Application Fee Waivers

JSU will accept requests, for first year students who have a financial need, to waive the $35 admissions application fee. Transfer students who send a FAFSA to JSU that has a pell eligible estimated family contribution (EFC) will be considered for a fee waiver. Requests from freshmen students who submit documentation including ACT/CollegeBoard fee waivers, NACAC fee waivers, and letters/emails from a high school administrator or counselor will qualify for a fee waiver. Students may complete an admissions application and select that they will be requesting a fee waiver to submit their application. Documentation of that request will be added as a supplemental item to complete the application. More information regarding eligibility for pell grants and EFC information can be found here
