J-STEAM is a program with limited availability. Students will be selected based on the date of their application.

Students enrolled in J-STEAM courses will be awarded tuition and book scholarships to cover those specific courses. Students may also apply for Jump Start Dual Enrollment Scholarships to cover courses taken outside of the J-STEAM program.

J-STEAM courses are selected by a committee made up of representatives from JSU's School of Education, School of Science, School of Arts & Humanities, and School of Business & Industry (STEAM-related programs). Courses are approved for high school and college credit equivalency. J-STEAM courses offered will differ by semester and location.

J-STEAM faculty are selected by the Dean of their particular discipline. Faculty selected for this prestigious program are some of JSU's best!

All J-STEAM students are also JSU Jump Start Dual Enrollment Students. Students in this program have access to the same services as dual enrollment students. Please visit our Jump Start Dual Enrollment page for more detailed information!
