Steps to Apply

Applying for admission to Jacksonville State University is as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Complete the application for admission.
  2. Submit the $35 (USD) non-refundable application fee.
  3. Submit all required documents.

We strongly encourage you to apply six to nine months prior to the expected date of enrollment.

It is your responsibility to see that your high school or college transcript and ACT/SAT scores are submitted. These documents must be sent to JSU directly from the high school (for high school transcripts), college (for college transcripts), or testing agency (for ACT/SAT scores). Decisions regarding admissibility to the University will be made as soon as all necessary credentials are received in the Office of Admissions.
