You are an important individual in a student's life - especially during the college search process. In order to better serve you, we have listed the requirements for students attending as a First Time Freshman, or as a Transfer Student from a community college or another higher education institution. If you would like to have an Admissions Counselor from Jacksonville State University visit your school or, if you need to contact your assigned Admissions Counselor, please visit our Meet Your Counselors page and choose your location.
Read our Counselor Newsletters for information and important dates.
To assist you and your students in the financial aid processes, we have some podcasts available below to help students and parents.
If you're hosting an awards day program where scholarships can be presented please complete the Scholarship Event Information Form to let us know when your event is scheduled so we can make plans to attend.

For a complete listing of requirements for First Time Freshmen, view the Admissions Procedures in the Undergraduate Catalogue.
Counselors, please submit one transcript through the junior year when a student applies for admission, and a final transcript after the student graduates. Jacksonville State University requires type of diploma and date of graduation on the final transcript.
The diploma type is used to fulfill admission requirements as well as determining if a student is eligible for certain grants. It is also helpful to have class rank and final grade point average if available.
We require that ACT/SAT Scores be sent to JSU from the testing agency.
Effective for Fall 2015 semester freshman applicants, JSU will accept an application fee waiver from ACT or CollegeBoard for those students who obtained a test score fee waiver from the agency. That waiver must accompany the Undergraduate Printable Application. In order for the Admissions Office to process the application applicants must meet the admission requirements for the term they are applying for. Applicants who submit an application and accompanying fee waiver and do not meet requirements at the time will not be processed until all admission requirements are met. Applications received without a fee or fee waiver will be returned to the applicant. All other requests, including NACAC fee waivers, will not be considered.
For a complete listing of requirements for Transfer Students, view the Admissions Procedures in the Undergraduate Catalogue.
Note: Students transferring fewer than 24 semester hours must meet freshman entrance requirements.
